I recently bought Roxio Creator 2012 to convert my .mov files taken from a Nikon camera to a playable dvd. I am completely lost. The learning center does not show how to convert .mov files to whatever file is needed to burn it to a playable dvd. I need a step-by-step approach help.
These are the steps I've taken so far:

1. I went to copy & convert video.
2. added movie (.mov file)
3. clicked the icon "video"
4. clicked the green arrow
5. it reads its "encoding to MPEG 2"
6. I go to the file it was saved in

Now what do I do? Do I have to download something else? I don't need to edit the file, add music, background, or anything fancy. I just need to burn the files to a DVD so I can play it on my dvd player.

Thanks to anyone that can help me.

Here is a workflow strategy for editing and making DVD from Video files
.  It is for an earlier version but the strategy is still the same.

Since all you want to do is burn the files, open "Create DVD" , open the new project tab and select DVD no menus (warning, the video will repeat until you stop it) or select new project and add one of the default menus.  Add the converted file. and select burn.

Remember,  at most one hour of video on a DVD or you will lose resolution.
