    Burning is the last step of authoring, which also includes getting the files
    setup properly, creating menus, etc.

  3. Authoring: The process of taking raw or edited video footage, adding
    chapter stops, menus, and then possibly MPEG encoding the footage (If
    you haven't encoded the video assets previously), and finally creating
    the files you need to burn onto the DVD.

    Burning: Taking the authored DVD files and physically writing them to
    a disk.
