I have problem with a dvd from the states (I am in Uk). When I play with Dvd player app, it plays fine but when I open in Mpeg streamclip rip it plays terribly which I guess is the difference in frame rate. I believe it is from a NTSC pal file (in Streamclip it says native resolution is 720 x 480), I need to get it playing in an Xdcam ex timline on FCP.
[Charlie Key]"it plays fine but when I open in Mpeg streamclip rip it plays terribly which I guess is the difference in frame rate. "
If you rip a DVD you should be getting an standard file. Pal or NTSC, should play fine in MPGStreamclip.
I'm a Pal lander too, so what I guess is that your MPEG-2 is p24 with pulldown.
Little experience (thanks God) about this, but I suppose that you need to remove that pulldown.
If I'm wrong any of our numerous NTSC pals will tell us.
[Charlie Key]"hats what confused me, it plays OK in DVD Player app, but not in MPEG Streamclip. Otherwise, I would just chuck it in the bin! "
I don't know what to tell you.
May be MPGStreamclip is more exigent. You know that many times things look well in QT, and in FC doesn't look the same.
I prefer to wait some expert to guide you. If I miss lead you, somebody will screem to me.
BTW, had you had a look to the "Info stream" in MPGStreamclip?
