I need some help with flash.

I have filmed a movie on my camera and I want to make a main menu in flash, which is scripted. The main menu has actions such as; play movie, scene selection and special features. Now the main menu works perfect, it has a stop funtction and listen to my commands. But I want to output this flash file so I can watch it on a DVD player.

I tried this once, using a program called something like; "Amor SWF to VCD SVCD to DVD Burner", but when I played it on my DVD, it skipped over my main menu, went black and played the music I had on the main menu (not the music in the movie). How can I play it on my DVD so I can navigate with my main menu?

You can't use flash (swf) on your DVD player. You cant convert an arbitrary swf to DVD format. What you can do is convert a *.flv movie to play in a DVD

You need a DVD-authoring program they will allow you to import the movie from your camera and help you create chapters and menus.

to be honest, if there is some interaction in the swf, you will need to screen capture. I know youtube will convert some swf files.

I am personally grabbing a tape recorder and using the hdmi out to do a seamless screen capture to tape.
