    Did some general pics of a friends wedding (nothing professional) but want to give the files as well as a dvd of what I took.

    What is a simple (free ideally) program to easily convert an LX5’s AVCHD files to DVD?

    If it can make a slide show of the pics as well that’s a bonus

    justa tip to anyone that uses this.

    dont save the project as the DVD recommend settings. looks utterly crap on a dvd.

    save HD settings then convert the wmv file created to DVD using the DVD maker. much better results.

    You could also try FFmpeg, or the gui version also available for windows called winFF. This should be able to turn pretty much any format and res into any other format and res.

    It only converts though.

    Most Editing programs even High end ones dont deal with AVCHD lite files at all well. Windows Live movie maker didnt either when it first came out but the current version works well with AVCHD Lite files especially panasonic cameras as they have a wierd frame doubling going on
