          You should not have any issues.


          If you are using only Still Images, here are the tips:


          1. Set up your Project as either NTSC, or PAL DVD, in either Widescreen 16:9, or Standard 4:3. For most current still cameras, the Widescreen 16:9 would be the more likely candidate, but also consider the TV's, that your viewers will likely have. If there are a ton of older, 4:3 CRT TV's in that mix, then consider them.
          2. Scale all of your Still Images to about the Frame Size of your Project, so ~ 720 x 480 for NTSC. See this ARTICLE.
          3. Import those into the Project.
          4. Drag those to the Timeline, and edit, as required.
          5. Add any Scene Selection Markers.
          6. When edited, go to Create Menus, and choose either a Wide, or Standard (depends on which you chose) Menu Set, then adjust, as is required.
          7. When authored, Burn to Disc.


          Remember, your Still Images are probably much higher resolution, than DVD, so do not expect HD quality material. However, if you/your viewers have an up-rezzing DVD, or BD player, properly hooked up, the resultant DVD will look spectacular.


          Good luck,
