Burn AVI files to DVD

Question

I just picked up Popcorn thinking that I could copy AVI files from my digital camera to DVD. I looks like I can convert them to view on iPod or PSP, but how about to DVD? Should I be using Toast instead?

 

Thanks in advance....java script:emoticon(':)',%20'smid_3')

Popcorn can copy but not create video DVDs. Toast can do this. If you have an application that can author a VIDEO_TS folder from your videos (and do the MPEG 2 encoding if it isn't in that format) you can use Popcorn to burn the VIDEO_TS to video DVD.

Thank you for the info tsantee! Can iMovie go from AVI to MPEG 2? If not, guess I need Toast. Can Popcorn do anything that Toast can't?

iMovie cannot create the MPEG 2. iDVD does do that but I recommend Toast unless you are wild about having the cool iDVD menus. Toast's MPEG encoder is excellent and it also encodes Dolby Digital AC-3 audio which iDVD doesn't.

 

Popcorn has a few options that aren't included in Toast that can be useful if you are converting a "ripped" commercial video DVD to fit a single-layer disc or to a different format. Toast can do that as well but without as many selectable options. For what you are describing there is nothing that Popcorn does that Toast doesn't also do.
