Powerpoint to .AVI

I am trying to convert my slideshow "movie" to .avi so that I can burn it to DVD using Nero.  I do not know what program to look for.  I am looking for something that works well but is inexpensive.  

Please help!

Thanks.

The Presentations to Video Converter app does the best job I've seen for a fairly pricey $199. One advantage to this app is the ability to convert PPT slideshows with or without PowerPoint installed on the converting PC. A second, moderately priced alternative is PPT to Video Scout, which does an admirable job converting most PowerPoint presentations for $49. In most cases, PPT to Video Scout will do the job. If you elect to use PPT to Video Scout for conversion, simply select the Convert to AVI option from the PowerPoint menu following installation of PPT to Video Scout.

The option I prefer for converting PowerPoint to AVI is to play the slideshow on my screen while using screen recording software to capture the slideshow. If you don't have any embedded video clips in the slide show, an app like SnagIt or VoDMaker works perfectly for grabbing your slideshow at approximately 10 frames per second (full motion digital video is typically 30 frames per second). If you embedded a full motion video in your presentation, you need a screen capture app capable of full motion video recording like Camtasia, which is an outstanding solution for the task at $299 per copy. No matter which screen recording option you choose, add a blank slide at the beginning and end of the presentation so that you have time to start the recording before the slideshow engages.

Camtasia was a great option!
