    I wanted to know where i caould get a program that would let me create chapters for my movies, kind of like imovie, but for windows, my videos that i wanted to put on the dvd are, .wmv, and .avi and i was wondering if i woul also need a converter to convert the movie files to another format if i have to.

    so the overview is:

    a) a program like i-movie, but for windows,

    b) a program that will convert the files if i have to convert at all.

    I have a DVD+RW burner and i have some DVD+Rs and RWs, which should i use and i also have nero if i have to use it.

    You need to encode, author, then burn.

    TMPGEnc and CCE are good encoders, there are many authoring programs out there. I use DVDit and Scenarist. You can use any of the burning programs like Nero if it supports DVD+RW.

    Most authoring programs support chapters BTW.

    Probably. What do you exactly mean by worse? Can you be more specific?

    BTW, www.vcdhelp.com has a page that details the encoder options in TMPG. You may want to study that to get the best looking picture from your AVI.
