I asked the same question here:

http://www.kvcd.net/forum/viewtopic.php?t=5454

And still haven't found the solution!

This guide:
http://www.dvdrhelp.com/forum/userguides/166237.php

worked well for me to go from PAL 25 to NTSC 23.976, but when I tried to convert the sound to NTSC 29.97 it soundeed like Alvin and the Chipmunks!

Anyone know of a guide out there for this, or have any recommendations?

Thanks,
Icarus

No, I'm sorry.

But you don't need to do this. Just encode with 23.976 fps (takes less space anyway) and set a 29 fps flag with Pulldown (get it here: http://www.doom9.org/software2.htm). Your standalone thinks it's 29 fps and does the pulldown itself.

Why don't you let your KVCD in 23.976 with "3:2 pulldown during play" activated ?

That make your 23.976 video seen as 29.97 by the player and everything should be okay.

Well, I just found out, my DVD player can play the PAL format,so it don't really matter, except for the fact that I can't use the higher KVCD resolution templates especially when converting from the DIVX avi formats. I think they're like something 400x200.

Dialhot:

When you say to encode with "3:2 pulldown during play", is this a setting in TMPGenc, or do I need to add something to my Avisynth script?

Also, when TMPGenc asks for the framerate, should I set it to 23.97 or 29.97? (I assume that with the "3:2 pulldonw during play" setting I should still set the framerate to 23.97, but would like to confirm).

Thanks,
Icarus

Why ? I'm in a PAL region (France) and I can use whatever template I want., both in PAL and NTSC. Do you mean that your player supports only PAL at VCD resolution ?

That's a setting in TMPGEnc but avalaible only if you encode as MPEG2 (that's the drawback of this solution)

You assume correcly. BTW if you try to lauch an encoding with 3:2 pulldown activated and fps set to 29.97, TMPGEnc will complain that is not possible.

I prefer to encode in MPEG-1. Is there a solution that's compatible with MPEG-1?

Thanks,

Running manualy the program pulldown.exe on the video file should work but I never test this myself.

Icarus3000,

For MPEG1 you can just keep the 23.976 fps since it is a legal VCD framerate. To enable the MPEG2 3:2 "pulldown during play" you have to set the framerate in TMPGENC "29.97 internally 23.976" or the other way around, not sure now.
But if you have truly interlaced PAL content (*not* movies and TV Shows, I am talking about musicals, Sports, News, Documentaries), that you want to convert to NTSC interlaced, you can use this script:
