Price

Based upon the rumor:

Street prices for the DVX100 in the USA for the NTSC version is $3395. If the PAL street price is &3400 (pounds), at a 1.5639 conversion rate, that would place it at $5317 US. And then you need to nab DV Atlantis to convert to NTSC.

3400 pounds = 5,317.19 US dollars (noon) ratio 1.5639 (0.6394)

I think for _my_ needs, the PAL version is out of the question, since I would also need a PAL monitor and other PAL equipment to use on the acquisition side. For myself, this cool camera is already out of my budget, but I think I'm going to get one anyway. =P

Tim, Vegas Video has excellent PAL to NTSC coversion features. You can capture / edit in PAL then do final render to NTSC. Works great. Works just as good for NTSC to PAL .

I've tried the trial version of DVfilmMaker and can't get it to work at all. Creates really large video files filled with nothing but the dvfilmmaker watermark and grey background. Since I'm not a registered user, I can't get support either. Others seem to have had better luck with it.

You might try the new release, 1.06a for Maker and 1.05a for Atlantis. Several bugs relating to DV-AVI's were fixed.

Here are the links:

http://www.dvfilm.com/atlantis

Who says? I don't recall any email from you so I guess you didn't even try. We aim for 100% satisfaction and frequently help users trying the demo version, because that's where bugs are reported first.

For progressive-scan PAL, Vegas and DVFilm Atlantis yield similar results, except that Atlantis is much faster.

For interlaced PAL however, the way Vegas does the conversion is entirely different. It blends fields of PAL together to create fields of NTSC, whereas Atlantis treats each PAL frame as a progressive-scan image (converting the PAL frames to progressive-scan with a selective deinterlacer). Atlantis simulates a film to NTSC conversion, and so it's really a film-look converter, not a general purpose converter.

Vegas can be made to do this in 2 passes, but it's deinterlacer is not selective, it deinterlaces even where no motion is present, cutting your vertical resolution by 50%.

Atlantis is also 1/3rd the cost, $145 vs $420.

The latest version did it(dated 11/.02/2002). thanks. Vegas does a lot more than
conversion so the price comparison is not really fair.
Still I like what the dvfilmmaker is doing. I'm gonna try to more clips and see what happens.
