Here is a way you can follow.

1 If your computer doesn't have the Movie Maker software, download it from the website linked in the Resources section below.

2 Import your pictures, audio and videos to your collections in the Windows Movie Maker. You do not have to have all three imports; for example, you could just use pictures and audio to make your DVD.

3 Double right-click on your pictures, audio or videos, and place them in order on your show storyboard timeline--which will be in blue at the bottom of your collections. With your audio you can fade it in and out, put more than one audio with your images and also overlap the music at the beginning or the end of each song.

4 Make titles and credits by right-clicking on “Make titles or credits.” You will see that you can add titles at the beginning of the movie, before or after a selected clip on your show storyboard timeline. You can also place a title on a selected clip and make ending credits.

5 Right-click on “View video transitions.” This will add some character to your DVD. When you find a transition you want, double right-click it and drag it to the transition line underneath your images. There are many different types of transitions, so you do not have to use the same one on all of your picture and video imports.

6 View the video effects by right-clicking on “View Video effects.” Just like the previous steps, if you find an effect that you want, double right-click on it and drag it to the picture where you want that certain effect. The same applies here with the choices you have as you did with the transitions. There are a lot of them, so you do not have to chose just one for each frame. You also do not have to use a video effect on all frames, or at all if that is what you chose.

7 Edit your final project. Watch it a couple of times to make sure all the titles are where they should be, you have images and the audios and videos are where you want them.

8 Save the movie to your computer. After you save the movie to your computer, you can then proceed to saving it to a DVD.

Topons hope it can help you.
