PAL is either 720 or 704x576. There are too many pixels in the width of your video so Toast would either need to crop them off or distort the video to squeeze them in. It apparently did the former.
Yes, I tried all combinations of 720 x 576, 720 x 480, etc etc for the last three hours. The result is ALWAYS cropped on the DVD.

 

REAL PAL (before this confused and poorly designed digital crap) was 768 x 576 which is 576 raster with square pixels.

 

Digital video is a compromise where NTSC is 640x480 stretched to 720x480, and PAL is 768x576 squashed to 720x576.

 

But Toast NEVER does PAL properly. And, OF COURSE, the user manual says NOTHING about it.

 

I find this to be typical of American engineers (I'm an American). They are arrogant and claim to do PAL because the marketing wanks tell them to, but they haven't got a clue how Europeans and others ACTUALLY use it.

 

What a load of crap.

Hi donelson52,

 

How were you able to obtain your PAL content at "768 x 576 pixels, 25 frames per second"? Would this be from a camera source or were these custom adjustments you manually set in quicktime or some other software? Would you be willing to send a segment of your file so that the roxio qa team can try to reproduce and address your issue? If so send me an email please to "benndaddy66@aol.com".

I did some extensive investigation.

 

My QT movie was created by iPhoto, exporting a slide show at 768 x 576, with black background fill. The QT movies plays fine.

 

The resulting Toast 9, PAL DVD is cropped on my LiteOn DVD Player/Recorder, model LVW 5115 GHC.

 

However(!), all other commercial PAL discs I have play just fine via that LiteOn player, with NO cropping. There must be some flag somewhere that it's using to crop/not crop.

 

I've tried remastering the QT movie into 720 x 576, etc etc, with various QT codecs (including PAL 720 x 576), etc etc, but none of these make Any difference to the LiteOn player.

 

You can duplicate this via iPhoto and a LiteOn 5115, if you care to.
