PAL and NTSC

#1

I have a xvid file that I converted to NTSC . I used automatic settings in convert x . When I play the video , it looks like a PAL screen. It looks a little concaved.Would this happen if the xvid file was previously Pal?


#2

If you convert PAL video with automatic settings then result is PAL.
You must force NTSC to get NTSC from PAL.


#3

I just converted the same file with Winavi. The quality is not as sharp but the screen is normal. I used NTSC full screen. Does anyelse have similar problems converting xvid files with convert x to dvd? I’m using the newest version of each.


#4

I did force NTSC. The T.V screen was automatic. Maybe I should force full screen or widescreen?


#5

o.k I checked previous post about dvd 4;3 letterbox widescreen. I set that on [U]my D.V.D player[/U].That worked . Now I don’t have to buy Winavi.
