I want to burn an .avi file into a PAL dvd...


Marcos M P

Question

i authored a (supposely PAL) dvd out of a couple of .avi files, using VisualHub... when i burn it with toast and try to play it on my dvd player, a screen shows up on the tv "verify tv color system", this is supposed to be shown when i try to play an NTSC disc on it.... so... i guess toast is burning a ntsc dvd, right? how do i know the color system of a dvd disc so i can check?

 

and how do i actually burn it in pal format?

 

thank you in advance!

So does that mean if i burn an NTSC disc with a PAL avi file inside, it going to run OK on an NTSC dvd player??

 

I'm pretty sure it will because Toast will re-encode the video. You may run into some random conversion problems, so when you view it on your DVD player it won't look perfect.

 

Someone who knows more about encoding can correct me if i'm too off here though...

Yes, because it will be converted to NTSC video before burning to the disc. The source video format does not control the output format, the settings do. When they aren't the same, the video is converted to match the output settings.

i dont think that's how it goes guys...

 

it will only encode the videos and end up as an NTSC if i do the DVD-Video option and use the original avi videos..

 

as i said before i had already authored this video into a PAL video_ts, so i tried burning this video_ts with the settings NTSC on toast, that didnt happen, just another wasted disc ehhehe..

Toast->Preferences, Audio/Video tab. NTSC / PAL is there in radio-button form.

 

The .avi files were probably in PAL form, but the disc you burnt was in NTSC form, because toast was set to that.
