You need to render out from AE uncompressed and then bring it into a DVD authoring program such as Encore DVD or Reel DVD to transcode the video into the appropriate MPEG2. It will give you .vob files which DVD players need to read the disc. Go here: for some in depth research.

If you have Premiere Pro you can bring in the uncompressed video file and then use the output to DVD function as well.

Some other inexpensive options are:

Sonic myDVD
Pinnacle Studio
Ulead DVD Workshop
