Re: NTSC to PAL

hi, if you get dvd shrink you can choose the output as pal regardless of what the vobs are in. load the files and it will encode and then burn all in one op. I have found great quality as well.

hope it helps

WHERE exactly you think there's an option for PAL<->NTSC conversion in DVDShrink?

What he describes in quoting me is so easy to do I'd hardly say someone's could lose their sanity attempting it. It is quite easy to do and has worked for me every time I have tried it (may 30 DVDs or so). My DVD player only plays NTSC. I know that's like still having an 8 track player to some people, and I know new ones that play both NTSC and PAL are super cheap, but they aren't as cheap as altering the IFO files with a free program.

Yeah, I was just exaggerating a bit (*cough*) to emphasize that there's a preferable solution which requires no work or alteration to the original dvd files at all.

Re: NTSC to PAL

Intervideo DVD copy versions 2 and 3 do a great job of converting NTSC to PAL and vice versa

Re: NTSC to PAL

It's hard to describe but IFO Edit causes a slight video lag every 2 seconds or so, when I convert PAL to NTSC. The dvds are still very much watchable, but it is slightly noticible.

That has not been the case with mine. First I have heard of that.

Sounds more like an issue with the playback device to me anyway (standalone player, I guess?) - when playing PAL as NTSC, the player it has to compensate for 5 missing frames per second *somehow* - usually by duplicating frames, but who knows whether yours doesn't handle this in a more retarded way (or less gracefully)

PAL to NTSC on a MAC

I am on a Mac


and I have gotten some discs that were in PAL. I don't want to buy a new DVD player, so i want to convert them to NTSC. Is there any way to pull the video and audio off the disc and then convert that to PAL? I don't want to recompress it or anything, just convert it.

Similarly, I have gotten DVDs where the chapters were all jacked up (like 5 per song), is there a way, on a Mac, to rip the video so I can edit it in final cut pro or DVDSP and put the chapter markers in the right spot? I guess to do it in DVDSP, it would have to rip to an MPEG2 file right? I don't want to pull it off the disc as DV and then reecode it as it will look like crap.

Any help would be appreciated

Re: PAL to NTSC on a MAC

There's no way I'm aware of that will allow you to make the conversion without losing your chapters but the best converter I know is part of MPEG2 Works 4 (bottom of the vob tab).

You'd first need to rip/convert the VIDEO_TS folder to a single VOB using something like 0SEx (select Prog. streams output format).

If DVDSP accepts MPEG2 then the best application to use for that purpose would be MPEG Streamclip. Open any of the VOB's with it and it'll offer you the choice of opening the whole set. Accept and then select whichever MPEG2 output format you require from the File menu.

Re: PAL to NTSC on a MAC

Yeah, DVDSP accepts MPEG2 files. In fact, when I export from Final Cut pro, I export to MPeg 2 and then just build in DVDSP. I can add chapters in DVDSP. When you convert with MPEG2 Works 4, does it alter the speed and sync of the audio/video?

I've never used the facility as I live in PAL-land where nearly all the players can handle both formats but as the application in question has the best reputation for the task, I'd be pretty amazed if it screwed up in such a fundamental way. If I were you I'd try the process first with a little clip (author a very short MPEG into a DVD/VOB with ffmpegx or something) and see what the results look like.

Re: PAL to NTSC on a MAC

I have a PAL test disc I made before t see if I could actually author one for people in PAL land, so I can use that as a test. Good thinking!
