For making movies on a Windows PC, you might like an easy-to-use program called DVD Flick (visit dvdflick.net). Using DVD Flick is easier than falling off a greased log backward, and it’s free. It also lets you easily integrate disparate video formats into the same movie, something I really needed to do.
I had gathered a number of videos from different websites, including YouTube, and needed to turn them into one seamless movie for use during the Internet security classes that I teach at our local library. I tried numerous free DVD-authoring programs, with less-than satisfactory results, before coming across DVD Flick; I like it.
All of these programs will allow you to add menus, titles and even basic special effects to your homemade DVDs. You are not limited to video, either; you also can add still photos and slideshows of your pictures. With a little effort, you can make DVDs that will make just about anyone smile.
