    hi all.
    just got back from amsterdam. it was a good trip. i now have lots of video's clips and sound files and too many photo's. i wanted to make a dvd of the experience for future viewing. then i can also give a copy to my mate who went with me. i had an ibook till about 6months ago. i sold it cause of money problems. well...i used to use imovie5 and idvd5 together for somple stuff like this and i loved it's professionalism with little effort. i have used final cut pro many times but only for big college projects.
    as i only have a dell now, what is the best software to get to replace the ilife apps. any opinions and idead to get similar results with ease?

    Hmm, haven't used a pc in a while, but try going to www.ulead.com. It has a whole bundle of apps for what you are trying to do. I went from ulead Videostudio, then jumped to premiere 6.5->pro, and of course now im a final cut pro user..

    If not dare i say just use windows movie maker.

    ulead would be my recomendation as well. Sony has some softwere too that comes with their comps that arent too shavy, I believe they sell them as well.

    if u are going to look @ expensive software, my Rec. would be to get a Mac Mini and it will have iLife 05 and u can use iMovie HD and iDVD with tons of new menues
