Hello - Nero 6 will do it all, but is a bit expensive. I am sure there will be other suggestions from people with some experience of this process

I use Cucusoft Avi To VCD DVD SVCD Converter, which he can get at click here (shareware) and then he needs IfoEdit v0.96 to create the vob files from click here (freeware) and then I use Nero, but there are other proggys that do the task!.
Hope this helps, all the best-

have come acrossed this webpage click here introduced by someone in a previous message thread long ago.

basically, the site-suggested tools required for your objective are:

Freeware "VirtualDub" - separates the video and sound streams in the AVI file for further processing.

Shareware "TMPGEnc Plus" - converts the AVI file into MPEG-2 (DVD) format.

Shareware "Nero Burning ROM" - burn the MPEG-2 files to DVD Disc and enjoys watching on television.
