My class produces stories using Powerpoint. I want to use Camtasia Studio to record the Powerpoint, audio, and a music sound track. I have figured out how to do this.
QUESTION; How do I produce/render their projects in a format that allows me to burn them to a DVD so they can be inserted into a DVD player for showing on a TV in class .

Hi Barry,

You have a great question! I did a little research, and found an interesting (free) program that I got working... it's called DVD Flick (link will remove you from this page) http://www.dvdflick.net/ .

That will take video in nearly any format, and burn it straight to disc, or burn it to an .iso file. I verified this works using an .mp4 video file. I burned an .iso, and was able to view it on my computer using VLC player (it should work with any DVD playing software).

I hope this is what you're looking for... please let me know if it works for you!

Regards,

Aaron

That will work for playing on your computer but I think the OP wants to play it on a standalone DVD player. DVD players usually use .VOB files. These are created with software that is made for this type of thing.

I use Adobe Encore for my DVD's (which is expensive) so I'll let some others chime in about what they are using to create their DVD's.

HTH
