I have a home made DVD-R containing episodes and a menu in NTSC format, and want to convert it to PAL. Let me say I am a complete noob in DVD authoring and have never done it before.
First things first -Is there any way to convert from NTSC to PAL (and the other way around) without recompressing the source (I would not be bothered if black bars appeared top and bottom like with widescreen movies) ?
This would be the ideal situation since the image quality would remain exactly the same.
Also, each episode has an annoying bar at the top of the image (with horizontal lines across it), as shown on attached image, and I was wondering what the best way of removing this would be ?
Thirdly, my initial experiment with converting just the VOB containing the menu resulted in the menu screen becoming blocky after the conversion (due to recompression I assume). Because of this I plan on grabbing the menu (2 pages) as an image and then creating a new menu in PAL format using these original images. How can I then re-create the menu buttons ?
Does this kind of thing sound like a job for DvdReMake, or should I use some other software ?
