Thread: Pinnalce Liquid 6.1 PAL to NTSC conversion

    Default Pinnalce Liquid 6.1 PAL to NTSC conversion

    We have recently completed the editing Flying the Fish a microlight flight from Cape Town to the Fish River Canyon in Namibia and are having some hassles with the PAL to NTSC conversion.

    On the converted NTSC timelint the audio goes progressively further out of sequence and buy minute 48 is about 1.5 seconds out... any suggestion ...?

    regards

    Default PAL to NTSC

    Whilst this may seem daunting, I can assure you itís not and the result will cure your out of sequence audio, plus you have nothing to lose in trying it. However, this is presuming we are starting from the completed PAL size DVD and not half done NTSC 720x480.

    I had great help from the author of DGPulldown over at Doom9 with my own PAL DVD conversion and the appended is all down to his hard work.

    To make things easy, save and work with all files in the same HD folder where your VOBs are.

    All software is Freeware
    Install Avisynth - obtain here http://www.avisynth.org/
    Install DGMPGDec - obtain here http://neuron2.net/dgmpgdec/dgmpgdec.htm
    and copy DGDecode.dll to VOB HD folder
    Install QuEnc - obtain here http://nic.dnsalias.com/QuEnc.html
    Install DGPulldown - obtain here http://neuron2.net/dgpulldown/dgpulldown.html

    Save and work with all files in the same HD folder where your VOBs are.

    Using DGIndex (one of the tools in DGMPGDec folder) open first VOB (I prefered to make new NTSC menus and in that case you would open the second VOB).
    Set the Audio menu to Demux all tracks and then press F5 (wait for demux to finish)
    Then Save project (use any name you wish and wait for saving to finish)
    You then will have 2 files created, anyname.D2V and ???48k16bit2ch.WAV

    Now make a text file script (use the 3 lines underneath) and save it as anyname.AVS
    loadplugin("DGDecode.dll")
    mpeg2source("anyname.d2V")
    lanczosresize(720,480)

    Then run QuEnc by opening file anyname.AVS
    Set bitrate to 4500
    Check the 2 Pass Encoding
    Click on Advanced Options
    Check Forced closed GOP
    Click Apply
    Click Encode
    Go make a cup of tea and on completion you will then have anyname.m2v

    Then run DGPulldown
    Browse to anyname.m2v
    Check 25 --> 29.97
    Click Convert (this creates file anyname.m2v.pulldown.m2v)

    Now Author as normal in NTSC using all your anyname.m2v.pulldown.m2v and ???48k16bi 2ch.WAV
