Well then, I've been party to doing that by the means suggested above.

We have a computer running Powerpoint in 2-display mode, whose output is
split, with part of it being converted to NTSC using a $79 VGA to NTSC
converter. We feed the NTSC video a $600 Korg 4-input video mixer and mix
it with the real-time video from a camera. The resulting NTSC stream is fed
to a $200 consumer DVD recorder. We do this every Sunday. The operator of
this part of the operation is a ca. 45 year-old matron who also controls the
Powerpoint presentation while she is mixing.

As far as after-the fact processing goes, I'm getting the following timings
for editing 90 minutes of NTSC program material with PE4 on a 2 GB PC with a
6 GHz dual core Athlon64 under XP, running off a single 250 GB 7200 rpm

(1) Open MPEG capture file which includes indexing and transcoding to DV-AVI
for PE4 processing - about 4 minutes.

(2) Edit to trim the ends and overlay and align 4 pre-fabed titles and a DVD
menu with pointers to 3 places in the video - 4 minutes.

(3) Burn 90 minute DVD - approximately 15 minutes.

I think duplication on a tower-style DVD copier takes about another half
