TV Standard feature in TOAST 7 Preferences

Question

In UK, we don't have trouble with NTSC discs. But I am trying to help a few people having trouble with PAL discs in the States. If I try to make a PAL disc compatible for NTSC by using the TV standards feature in TOAST 7 Preferences, what actually is it doing when I switched to the NTSC button?. (Remember : any 'tries' I make and burn, I have to send by mail and get feedback as I can't check out a disc here on a specific NTSC machine like they are using before sending, so it becomes laborious - much better I know what software is doing to see if that is really solving the problem.)

I'm just an observer, but as for the part about having to mail a disc and wait for a response, perhaps you could do what I did and create a tiny .ISO file (a .toast file is a .ISO file with a .toast suffix!) as a test, which you could send to the recipient and have them mount it, instead of using the notoriously slow government-supplied disservices.

I'll look up about .iso files in the manual - if it doesn't enlighten me, I may need to get back to you as to how I create one !

In the interim, I got the idea of digitalizing some home-shot PAL video footage and encoding that, as one disc ( to test difference between PAL video and film source) and from a commercial disc which I'm sure was shot on film. Both worked fine on my living room player and I've sent them off. Your idea would have been better, as long as there's enough footage (at least a minute) in an .iso file that is still under 10 mb ( the limit of my yahoo attachment files.)

 

What's happening now, is that when a try to encode and burn more than 1/2 hour, I'm getting OS/Toast clashes. It gets to within 1 to 4 minutes of finising the burn and can't proceed, OS error -39.

I think I know what the problem is, so will persevere before I use the forum to cry for help
