hello all,
i would like to put my footage (PAL in RTV-format) edited with VT3Edit (patch 4909) to a DVD in NTSC. Is this possible? What settings?
Or do I have to print to tape and convert it the usual way?
many thanks,
cheers,
chris

There's probably a few ways to do this, but try this first, if it works it's probably the easiest solution.

Go into VT Preferences, and change the output from PAL to NTSC. Now when you output your project (play, render, or directly to TMPGEnc), it should automagically change to NTSC format, with the right framerate, aspect, etc. You may see black bars on the sides of your video which is a result of VT keeping the aspect ratio correct.

I say "should" because I haven't needed to use this feature much, but back in the VT2 days I captured DV from a PAL camera and edited it in NTSC using the above Preferences switch, with zero problems.

Good luck and if you have more questions just ask, the folks around here are pretty savvy.

-MG.
