Is there any way to convert PAL to NTSC?

Author cavsi Category: Audio and Video Tags:

Yes!!! There are some ways you can use to convert from PAL to NTSC or vice versa.

1. The easiest way is buy a region free DVD player, many modern DVD players will play and convert both NTSC and PAL DVDs and will also play DVDs that may have specific regional encoding, helping to avoid the regional problems created by the different formats and specifications.

2. IFOedit is the best conversion software. IFOEdit allows users to parse VOB files, remove and add video/audio/subtitle streams to VOBs, create new IFO files, create DVD images and burn DVD-Rs. (A VOB file is a container format contained in DVD-Video media.)

3. Another way is using DVDSanta that is an all-in-One software that helps you copy, convert and create DVD movies. It can convert video files (include DVD videos) into DVD format. DVDSanta's results are not very good but it does work.

4. A program called ConvertXtoDVD converts your movie files to a compatible DVD playable on any home DVD player but you won’t get the menu's.

Converting PAL video to NTSC involves adding extra frames into the footage and this can result in slight judders during fast movement scenes when done by most basic home editing software (Linear Interpolation). However by using Inter-Field Interpolation or Adaptive Motion Interpolation techniques, the inserted frames are averaged from the frames before and after the point where they are inserted and result in much smoother playback.
