Subject – Convert PAL to NTSC
I remember your first comments on this was ( Just don’t do it ) but now I have to.
My newly purchased Sony BD player ( BDP-S550 ) will not play PAL.
The disk I sent you was a copy of my first attempt..
1 – Ripped PAL dvd with ImgBurn
2—Converted the two VOB files to NTSC with Womble MPEG VIDEO WIZARD DVD.
3 – Put the two MPEG files in Adobe Premiere Pro 1.5 to export one file.( Premiere would not take VOB files )
4 – Put the one MPEG file in Pinnacle Studio 11, trimmed 6 seconds of black off the beginning ( Never did learn to use Premiere )
I have learned to take the Womble files straight to Premiere and use it to burn disk.I have tried several burning programs, Premiere does the best job.
The moving credits in the video are a little jumpy, some of the horizontal lines on the moving boats are a little wormy, but plays ok in my blue ray player.
I know you plan a section on Converting , so just a few questions.
1—Best cheap program to convert?
2—How well does hardware convert?
I knew that a BD player would upgrade dvds thur the use of hdmi connections, but to see it on my Sony xbr 37 is simply amazing.
