Can anyone recommend a DVDauthoring app to compliment Windows Movie
Maker 2.1?

Specifically what I'm looking for is the ability to import (or in some
way source) the WMM project file (.MSWMM) and automatically create
chapters on the DVD which will correspond to each "clip" on the
storyboard of WMM2.1. (without having to breakup the large .avi file
captured into smaller clip-size .avi files like PPro or Scenlyzer
does)

In other words: Nothing beyond movie maker (unless there are updates around
I have not seen). You are stuck in movie maker.

In other words you might find more posts and people that know more about
what you want to do. I could make some suggestions but this would not be the
BEST forum for that. I don't use WMM often and when I do I have to convert
the captured file to type-2 then edit with Pinnacle Studio then render with
another app. You are never stuck with WMM.

No authoring app gives you the capability to import only a project file
and output a DVD. You need to supply either a finished AVI or a
compliant MPEG-2 file. A search on this group for DVD authoring will
give you lots of options covering cheap to good.
The The DVD Cookbook at http://www.videoguys.com/DVDhome.html is a good
place to start reading.

If you read the OP carefully, what you suggest is not what he wants. He
wants a direct read of the project file into an app that will auto-create
chapters based on that file.

The Microsoft Moviemaker forums would be the place to go for info on this.
