View Full Version : Request help with video conversion

09-28-2002, 01:22 PM

I have recently begun training for my new job as streetdance choreographer and teacher for a Stage School and would be everso grateful if you guys could help me out with something.

I am after some way to convert US videos to UK format as there are some pretty inspiring US Hip Hop videos that we can't get in the UK.

Many thanks for your help. :kiss:

Heck, VCR's are so cheap here you could just buy one and have it shipped over the pond. It would probably be cheaper than having a couple tapes converted.

So you want to do this: NTSC to PAL?

The only thing off the top of my head I could say to do is, play the videos through a compatable vcr having the video run into a video in/out card on a computer, then taking that video and using a freeware editing program, I think TMPGEnc would work, convert it to PAL form then send it back out to a blank tape.

I think I may end up having to buy the services of a professional ;). I would love to buy an NTSC video and have it shipped here, but the wonder of HM Customs and Excise, also known as the UK Trade Federation would impound it and not release it till the tax levy was paid. :(

Any other suggestions?

Many thanks
