Hi I am in Uk but want to send DVD to friend in USA. However its a project I have already finished, so I seem unable to set Project preferences to NTSC. So I am thinking of making DVD in Create and Share as follows             Disc/DVD/SD480  30fps or        Disc/AVCND/HD 1920x1080 30 fps Will either on these work or do I have to set Project preferences to NTSC at start of project. If so I don't know how to get existing project into a new one without a lot of work, and I assume I loose menus etc.  ( Save As doesn't allow you to change preferences does it? ) Basically I am not sure what I am doing despite researching on Forums, books etc. Chris

I don't know how to do what you want. 

Another possibility would be to output the finished video from the PAL project as a common H.264/MP4.   Then send that to to your friend on a DVD disc.  A lot of Blu-Ray players will play video files from DVD discs used as "data discs". 

This is a guess, but you might also try using the H.264/MP4 output as a media source for a new project set to NTSC.

Thanks for reply. I have actually done the former, but I set the frame rate to 30fps, but don't know if that helps or not, as that seems to be the frame rate for NTSC. Regarding second option, I was trying to avoid setting up new project if possible as I assume I will loose menus etc so have to do some rework. As its a long video and takes more than an hour to burn, I will see if I get any more responses who can add to this. Thanks Chris

Chris,

More responses would be good.   DVDs are too far in my past to be of much help!
