PAL XviD to NTSC SVCD

vbimport

#1

I have a PAL XviD movie, in 2 parts, and i want to convert it to an ntsc svcd.

Specs:
Fullscreen
25fps
720x528
200k/byte video data rate

Whats the best way to convert this to I guess 23.976fps and then use DVD2SVCD/CCE to convert this? I dont want to use TMPEGenc only of thats the only possible way to convert it.

Thanks.

TMPGEnc would probably be the easiest way but also very slow. Check out http://www.geocities.com/xesdeeni2001/StandardsConversion/index.html

I’ve never done a PAL to NTSC (I live in a PAL world !) but I think an editing of the AVISynth script in DVD2SVCD will allow you to do the conversion. But convert to 23.976 film as you suggested, then run pulldown on it to do the final conversion to 29.76 fps.
