Hi

I wonder if someone could help me with this - I have prepared a DVD for which I used FCP and DVD Studio - it was set-up as a PAL Project from FCP and in DVD Studio Pro.

Now I need to produce in in NTSC format as well (it is going to multiple regions for a client)

I am not sure if I can do this easily. Can I change just an option in DVD Studio Pro and burn the DVD - can I make it multi-region?

Any pointers would be very welcome.

thanks

I beleve the default in DVD Studio Pro is region free, unless you change it. I am not sure about the PAL option.

You can convert it to NTSC in the right side panel in the advanced tab.

from my experience you need to have the files that will be in the dvd exported in the NTSC format. i dont think dvd studio will let you simply change it to another format without changing the format of all the files in the project.
