Converting NTSC to PAL???
on Jan 7, 2010 at 4:40:04 pm

I have to convert an NTSC DVD to PAL at work. I have MAC the Ripper and DVD Studio Pro. Is there any way I can convert NTSC to PAL with those programs? If so, how would I go about it. If not, what programs would I need and what would I have to do? Thanks to anyone who responds to this question.

Best advice, don't do it.
Over here we can play NTSC discs without trouble.

It sounds like you have a means to rip the content and re-author a new PAL DVD, but you still need to transcode the NTSC video file into PAL. Is it safe to assume you have Compressor?

Once you rip all the content video and menu, they need to be converted to PAL with something like Compressor. This is not an easy process to get right and unless you have PAL equipment to test it on you are flying blind.

What Bouke is saying that most people are not converting NTSC DVDs to PAL for export, NTSC play just fine in PAL countries since there equipment can handle them nicely.

If you have to do it read through that frame control section of the Compressor manual. But somewhere some how you need to proof the PAL to make sure you like that conversion.

Michael,
I'll tell you just once more:
DO NOT DO THIS.
You have NO idea what you are doing, and you are too lazy to go onto the internets where there is a zillion amount of sites that could help you.

SO:
WHATEVER you are coming up with now WILL SUCK BIG TIME.

and now i'll unsub from this thread and go to sleep.

Bouke

Thank you for your thorough assessment. I've searched numerous sites and can find how to convert PAL to NTSC, but not vice versa. Goodnight.

There is 2 ways for NTSC->PAL conversion

1st - S&W transcoders (i don't know what you can get...)
2st - software:
2.1 - interpolation
2.2 - speed up - this is only one right way if you have NTSC progressive (23.976) with 3:2 pulldown. You can remove unnecessary fields, after this you can speed up your video (change frame rate) and audio (resample/time-strech)

In Vegas, you can only get a single speed change (CTRL-Resize the clip) as the velocity envelope only applies to video in Vegas.

Michael,
Not sure if you're already done, but nevertheless.
Same question came from a paying client, he wanted to do A LOT of NTSC-Pal conversion for broadcast, and on a VERY low budget.
I've tested Mpeg streamclip, and it can rip DVD content, transcode and convert from NTSC and Pal.
Experiment with settings (set scaling to HQ, frame blending on, do NOT deinterlace, mind your field dominance, adjust gamma if you need to edit in FCP, toy around and test)

It looks way better than expected, and it's for free. (well, you need the MpegII QT playback component if your source is DVD)

And i've only tested on Windows....
