It's definately a learning curve. I've only done a few DVDs. The first ones I
played with doing, but never finished were some slideshow stuff. Then I was
backing up shows from my Replay to DVD. Got bored of that, well, the seasons
ended and no new material, plug a HD crash and the loss of my notes. (BACK-UP,
print off, any notes you make. Notes are really important! I make judiciuos

Currently I'm doing my initial project. Scanning family photos to make a DVD
for family members for Xmas. I've got about 400 pics scanned in so far,
covering the 80s and 90s. Still probably have 3-4x that much to go (50s -
70s). And a search and rescue mission for two albums that are MIA. And I'm
scanning at a lowly 2.5 pics per minute via a bash script I wrote.

Talk about small use of video. I've got a DVD that's about 24 minutes long
containing 245 images, @ 5 sec per image w/ 1 sec crossfade transition. It's
taking up a whopping 356MB. I think every picture myself, and my family have
taken will fit on a regular DVD!

I'm using a LITE-ON DVDRW SOHW-812S.
