    Okay, those of you who make DVDs made up of home movie snippets, photos and music (ie cheap Christmas presents :eek:), which programme do you use?

    I've tried iMovie HD but the photos look terrible and the transitions, etc seem a bit limited. I'm still trying to get to grips with Final Cut Express, but it'll take a while....a long while....before I do.

    I'm just looking for something that will allow me combine photos, video and music with a decent choice of transitions and effects. My photos are good quality so I'd love to find a programme that would maintain that quality without me needing a degree in computer science to achieve it!

    Any suggestions? Thanks.

    Do the photos you use in FCE look okay or do you have to fiddle about with resolution, or whatever?

    I adjust the photo size before importing and it looks fine on a TV. Looks a bit rougher on a computer monitor, but that's not the intended target.
