Converting a Powerpoint 2007 Presentation into a Playable DVD Movie

anuneznyc used Ask the Experts™
I have a slide show created in PowerPoint 2007. Is there software I could download or buy that would allow me to convert that slide show into a playable format that I could burn on to a DVD and could then be played on a home DVD player (NOT on a computer)?

I want the end result to be a DVD that someone could pop into their DVD player and watch right on their TV.

Simply use File -> Save as -> JPG Format... Save as jpg
This saves each page of the presentation as individual image that you can import into a something like Windows Movie Maker, Windows Live Movie Maker or any other software to create a DVD...
Also, AVS Video Editor imports and creates the PowerPoint presentation and creates a video without even saving as jpg files first! But my first solution is free!

I needed to convert the entire presentation, including transitions and background music w/ minimal hassle so I ended up buying & using Alcoolsoft's "PowerPoint to DVD" program. It was $79, but it worked exactly like advertised.

Thanks to everyone for their suggestions.
