How to use Atlantis to make a high-quality NTSC DVD from a PAL DVD, or vice versa
It can be done with Atlantis, a DVD burner, and some software
for copying DVD's
and DVD authoring. You will need a large amount of hard drive
space (40GB for 100 minutes) and 2 pieces of free software in addition to Atlantis.
Atlantis 2.1 for Windows will now read VOB files.
This should probably not be attempted unless you already have
copying and authoring DVD's. You'll need:
The steps you must take are:
Other than Atlantis, these other software programs are not supported
by DVFilm. Each has their own
help system and support.
For Macintosh, you will also need a program to convert decrypted
VOB files to Quicktime,
since the Atlantis program for Mac quires a quicktime file. One recommended program is
MPEG Streamclip available at squared5.
Note that the 5.1 Surround encoding, the Menu and Chapter information
will be lost. The 5.1 Surround
is downconverted to regular analog stereo with surround. Extra tracks of audio like second language
tracks and commentary tracks are written by Atlantis into separate WAV files if you need them.
The default output compression for Atlantis is DV. If you need
higher quality intermediate format,
but not necessarily real-time playback (since in the final step you will be encoding to MPEG-2 anyway),
consider these two, free, high-quality codecs
