Computer program question

What is the best program to create a photo slide show with transition effects, the ability to be set to music, and render the final version onto a dvd?

Thanks

I did some heavy research on this back in 2003 and chose a program (which I still have somewhere). I can't think of the name of it at the moment....it worked decently well, but I wouldn't swear its still the best 4 years later (especially since I never hear anybody mention it).

Windows Movie Maker if you have Windows XP.

You'll still need to have a program to convert a WMV to MPEG2 with the necessary DVD files and burn the DVD-R.

You can't beat this one. It's free and easy. I've made a lot of DVD's for groups etc. and even made some money doing this. As mentioned you need encoding and authoring software to make the actual DVD.

Holy **** 11 posts and some sarcastic mac user didn't come in and say

Mac...

thats awesome. Sorry I came into this thread betting with myself how long it would take. I don't know the answer, I have a premade flash program I made eons ago that pulls the names of the pics from a text file and shows the pics I program into it.
