The multimedia/avidemux2 is a bit easier to use (IMO) than mencoder since its a gui-type video editor/converter that can produce the mpeg2 program streams from avi files for use with dvdstyler. Its really quite nice with lots of intuitive features. The ease in converting with any of the utilities will depend largely on the source material.
