  • Converting PAL avi to NTSC

    Hi, I have a project that has been edited in Edius 4.5c PAL and I need to convert it to NTSC for authoring to a dvd for the USA market. I'm having problems with the encoding from the timeline in that whatever I do the audio at the end (a 90 minute video) is out of sync by about half a second.

    I have tried exporting a PAL avi (which is ok) then using Procoder to convert to NTSC but the same problem exists.

    Anyone had the same problem? Am I missing something?

    I have done this in the past (with Edius 3) and no problems.

    Are you converting it from PAL avi to NTSC mpeg2 ? Or avi to avi?

      the only way to overcome this is by exporting to avi

      then use Tmpeg 4 Xpress to convert to NTSC elementary or program stream using ac3 audio at 256kbps or less, no audio drift at all

      I do this on a regular basis and have also found that on a 60 min project, ProCoder3 causes lip sync to gradually drift by 10 frames by the end of 60 min

      also, ProCoder3 causes strange motion artefacts

          I was using Procoder Express so the same with that as well.

            Antons method converts from PAL avi to NTSC avi, then from there to Mpeg. Thats were I was going :)

              no, Tmpeg can convert from Pal avi direct to NTSC mpeg
