Re: PAL to NTSC telecining

What about if you omit menus? BDMV has many arbitrary restrictions that don't apply to stand alone video files, e.g. the low consecutive B-frame cap.

Re: PAL to NTSC telecining

Yikes, thanks for that bit of information. I always buy the UK DVD/BD for PAL shows, because I'm not confident that the NTSC conversion will be handled properly, and I want the original video format, anyway. I wasn't sure if this was necessary for BD, because the standard should allow them to just u...

Re: PAL to NTSC telecining

Unless you have to target DVD-Video as your output format, I don't think there's any reason to do any of this anymore. HDTVs support all framerates regardless of region, so if you have a Blu-ray player, you can just leave the video as 25 fps and burn it to a DVD-R in a MP4 or MKV container and play ...

Re: PAL to NTSC telecining

Yep. The audio matter is more complicated these days, too. In the past you could usually assume that the audio had just been slowed down from 25 -> 24 fps, thus changing the pitch and tempo, so you could simply speed it up to 25 fps again to restore the pitch and tempo. These days it's possible to f...

Re: PAL to NTSC telecining

I actually encountered the "other" way of doing it some years ago. You can tell it's not very common, because mkvtoolnix wasn't able to handle it properly by default, but Moritz Bunkus was able to fix the bug after I reported it to him. What you do is slow 25 fps down to 25000 / 10001 (24.975) fps, ...

Re: DGDecomb

The radical solution is to get government out of it completely; let private enterprise fund things. I would argue that this would cause the opposite of the desired effect. The least reliable studies are funded by corporations with a vested interest in specific outcomes. If corporation x funds a stu...

I currently staff a site that switched to DigitalOcean some six months ago, and it's been working well for us so far.

Re: DGDecomb

BTW, I used to be staff at a site that used HostGator, and our forum got error 500s fairly often, so if you're still thinking of switching to them, I would advise against it.

Re: DGDecomb

It wouldn't be too slow. I just haven't implemented it. Do you have a clip that clearly shows its advantage? I'm afraid not. I've just read the Decomb manual, which says things like: If your telecined source material is NTSC 3:2 pulldown, you can enable pattern guidance, which can make the field ma...
