PAL anamorphic movie to NTSC .m2v - resize settings?
on Feb 20, 2009 at 12:25:21 am

Hi,
I'm trying to convert my movie shot in PAL anamorphic mode into an NTSC .m2v file for DVD Studio Pro. What resize settings should I be using in Episode Pro to keep the widescreen proportions? 720X406?
Thanks!

I see that After Effects has an NTSC D1 Widescreen Square Pixel preset 865x486 - is this the the resize settings I should apply in Episode?

Episode has a bunch of presets for Standards conversion, have you tried these?

720x480
Maintain proportions with None (Distort)
Source Display Aspect ratio - Pass through or force it by using 'assume'

tried that - but the m2v comes out 4x3 squeezed horizontally. The 846x486 also comes out 4x3 and is not recognized by DVD Studio Pro. What the...?
If Toast can make an NTSC DVD from a PAL movie with just one click, Episode should definitely be able to do that too, ain't it?

What are you using to view the m2v?

I imported it into DVD Studio Pro, viewed it in Mpeg Streamclip, and as preview in finder (space bar) - looks the same.
