Okay, I know there are a lot of questions about this very subject, but I have spent a good few hours trying to get this question answered to no avail, so I'm making a thread only as a last resort. I downloaded a torrent file of a movie in the standard DVD form, with all the .ifo and .bup and .vob files. Problem is, it's a Russian DVD, in PAL format. I'm aware of the "patch" fix, but would like to truly encode the dvd to NTSC format. Whenever I search for topics on encoding pal to ntsc, I get a bunch of info on AVI to DVD. So how do I take DVD files that are in PAL format and get a true conversion to NTSC, without a loss in quality?
