Convert Pal DVD to NTSC

Anybody know of how to do this?? The programs I currently have are Toast Titanium, VisualHub, MacTheRipper, DVD2oneX.
Can't figure it out. Also I want to keep it dual layer and not compress it to single.
Thanks for any help guys!

I'm not 100% certain of the exact procedure, but basically you'll need to "rip" the DVD's movie to an MPEG-2 file, convert it to NTSC using ffmpegX or something like that, then burn the MPEG-2 file back to DVD using Toast.

There seem to be a number of ways to do this, but it looks as if none of them preserves all the original DVD features - you basically get a conversion of the main feature.

Do keep in mind that PAL is 50 interlaced half frames per minute and NTSC is 60. There will be some interpolation no matter what you do.

thanks for the info guys... basically I'm looking for something that will just convert the whole thing menus and all - just make a dupe but NTSC... looks like that might prove to be a little tricky.

VisualHub should do the job for you.

I tried it... for some reason I'm only getting one of the episodes (it's a 3 episode disc- british tv show)
Just drag and drop the video_ts folder into visual hub right? I also want to keep it dual layer and not compress it

You probably need to do each episode separately.
