Authoring Dvd's

Question

I am looking into puchasing Toast and I haven't been able to find an answer to my question anywhere. I want to make sure the software does what I need it to do before I buy it.

 

I am looking for a DVD authoring solution for movies. I used to use iDVD on a mac, but I realized it converts all video files to 30fps (NTSC). I shoot my films in 24fps.

 

When authoring a DVD in Toast, does it convert my movies to 30fps or will it keep them at 24fps?

 

Thanks so much for the responses!

Toast will convert them to 30 fps. The only way it retains 24 fps is when those are already MPEG 2 format before adding to Toast. In that case Toast can be instructed to Never Re-encode and doesn't modify the MPEG 2 video when authoring a DVD.

I use iDVD all the time for both 30 and 24 fps. You just need to remember to set it to PAL. Navigate thusly: iDVD > Preferences > PAL.

PAL is 25 fps.
