AVI is one of the most common digital video formats. Many digital cameras and camcorders use AVI format for motion video. Then how do you take a movie that is stored on your hard drive in AVI format and burn it to disk so that you can watch it on a standard DVD player? This is really a problem if you would like to share interesting videos on your computer with friends and family members. This article will provide a quick guide on free burning AVI to DVD.
To put normal videos like AVI videos to DVD, you need professional DVD creation software to convert and burn AVI to DVD.
Look at three things: ease of use, features, and price. If an AVI to DVD creation program is so complex and difficult that you will never learn it well enough to actually produce anything useful, it's the wrong video creation software for you. Whatever you choose must, at minimum, have the critical features you need for your movie. If you do not intend to become an expert at creating movies, you may not need too many features. But if you cannot string together all the things you want in your movie, you should find another video creation program. And if you would never be able to afford the video creation software, it is the wrong program for you.
