    best way to make narated slideshow on DVD?
    I am making a slideshow of old photographs for my parent's 50th weding aniversary. One they can watch on a TV (so standard DVD).

    I would like to record a naration allong with it.

    What is the most straighforward way to do this? I can make a slideshow easily enough using iphoto, keynote, or imovie..and then presumably move to DVD. it's the naration that is giving me trouble.

    Yes.

    1. Assemble the movie in iMovie.
    2. Write a script, and rehearse it with the movie playing so you get the timing perfect.
    3. Record the narration in iMovie over the film. This is a built-in feature.

    4. Pass the finished film into iDVD as normal.

    Tried this...
    it seemed to work just fine in imovie. seemed to work fine when playing the DVD in my imac. but...

    tested on a PC and no sound!

    haven't tested in a regular DVD player (which is what the project was intended to be played on). But I thought after many hours of editing that it was DONE! I need to tonight (and can't do anyting with it untill I get home, because here at work I have a PC, not a mac).

    I read on several forums that there is apparently a common problem of loosing the sound track when burning an imovie to DVD (also, frankly, the process was NOT very intuitive). I figured the option in imovie that says "send to iDVD" would, you know, send the project to iDVD. but no. had to send to media browser. how is that logical? I thought mac was supposed to be so well integrated and intuitive to use! I'm more than a bit frustrated.
