DVD Burning Software for your NTSC color system

DVD Burning SoftwareIt might happen that you have recorded a home DVD-video disc but your DVD player or TV set does not support the color system used to record the video on the disc and cannot playback it. If you still want to watch the video you can try and burn it from one color system to another using DVD Burning Software.

It is worth mentioning that cross color system conversion is a very complicated process and cannot be done easily thus we can advise to burn your video into another color system only if you really have to and bear in mind that the output video will not be perfect. We will explain the conversion process and arising difficulties below.


Alright, I know that many of you may say that there are plenty of DVD burning software out there and that if I do a guide like this I should cover all of them. But I only got AVS Video Converter and many users are asking me about how to burn a DVD-Video with it, so that's why AVS is the one for the guide.

Step 1: Download and install DVD Burning Software

Download it. After the download is finished, run the AVSVideoConverter.exe file and follow the installation wizard instructions.




Step 2: Run DVD Burning Software and select your input video file

To select a video you would like to convert hit the Browse... button next to the Input File Name field. In the opened Windows Explorer window browse for the necessary video file:

Step 3: Set up the conversion parameters

After you have selected the video input file, click the To DVD button placed along the top of the interface to burn a DVD or save video in DVD format on the PC:


burn video to dvd


In the list of Profiles (Profile) select one of the preset NTSC profiles.

After that click the Advanced >> button to change the additional parameters:

Make sure that the Aspect of the input video is equal to that of the output video. You can see it here:


burn dvd


In case they are not the same, click the Aspect Correction tab in the bottom part of the advanced parameters window:

In this tab select the aspect exactly the same as it is in the source video (in our case it is 16:9). Now click back to the File Information tab. As you can see the two files - input and output - differ in image size (Height) and frame rate:

All the other differences produce no trouble to the output video. But these two dramatically influence the output video quality. DVD Burning Software solves the difference in the image height using the aspect feature - it keeps the video proportional notwithstanding its physical dimensions change.


Note: when you convert your video for a mobile device - an Apple iPhone, for instance, or other portable players and devices - the program will suggest that you convert your video with the highest frame rate supported by the device (that is 30 frames/second). In this case you should open the Profile editor (clicking the Edit Profile... button) and select the Original value in the Frame Rate field:

Note: this will allow you to avoid the unnecessary distortions and judder effects in the output video.

Step 4: Set up a proper video output file path

Click the Browse... button next to the Output File Name field and select a location on your HDD for the output video file.
Note: when you select a location for your output video file, you should save the file to your personal computer HDD.


Step 5: Convert your video file

After you have set up all the conversion parameters, hit the Convert Now! button to start converting.

If the input video is too long to fit a single layer disc, the following message will be shown:


burn to dvd


You can either select a standard single layer disc - in this case your output video will be shrunk to fit it - or, if your DVD drive supports writing to double layer discs and you have such a disc available, fit your video to one double layer disc without quality loss. Click the OK button to start the conversion process.


Once the conversion process is over the message will suggest your further actions:


dvd burn


Select the Burn to Disc... option to record the output DVD onto a disc.


Step 6: Burn your resulting video onto a disc

Insert a blank DVD into your computer optical disc drive. Make sure that the disc is compatible with your drive. AVS Video Burner application will be launched to guide you through the burning process so that you could record your converted video onto a disc.

You can select the necessary disc drive if you have several, refresh it and mark the Verify disc check-box to make sure the disc is recorded correctly.

Now click the Start burning! button to begin the recording. Note, that if the disc is not empty you will be offered to erase it. If you do not want to do that, you can eject the disc and use another one instead.

After the burning is over the disc will be ejected automatically. Note, if you checked the Verify disc, the recording will take a little longer depending on the size of the output files as the program will need time to verify them.

Now you can watch your recorded home video DVD on your Home DVD Player!
