This is a place to discuss the trials and tribulations of digital video, the editing, types of hardware and software available, and personal choices of same.
Not interested in home made Porn (at least not here), so Paris Hilton can go elsewhere. There are many many sites available for that.
I use ULead Video 7 and Pinnacle Studio 8 for editing and rendering and Nero 6.0 to create the discs.
Video Standards (transmission)
- Stands for Phase Alternating Line
, the dominant television standard in Europe, and those parts of Asia once under the control of the Brits (Singapore, Malaysia, etc.). Frame Rate is 24 frames per second (fps)
- Short for National Television Standards Committee
, the body that defined television standards for North America. Also used in Japan and Taiwan in Asia. Frame rate is 29.97 frames per second (fps)
Since almost every player plays NTSC (all of the ones I've seen to date) I only create in NTSC. Makes it easier than trying to remember which standard you happen to be working in.

Thanks to Sexton O Blake for pointing it out...here's a good site for technical details of various video formats:
Please, let's leave politics, spam and rudeness at the door.
