  • DVD Authoring app for Mac

    Posted by David Mayer on January 2, 2021 at 10:59 pm

    I use my old Mac with DVD Studio Pro to author DVDs for over 10 years. FCPX to Compressor to DVD Studio Pro. Now I get this message when importing the media into DVD Studio Pro: “PAL assets cannot be imported into NTSC projects.” (The assets are definitely not PAL) After a lot of troubleshooting, I’d rather just start authoring DVDs on my better Mac. Roxio Toast is $90 – I’d rather spend $50 or less. Suggestions are welcome. Thanks.

    What are the specs of your media. If you are making NTSC what specs do you need? (sizes,framerate,codec etc)

    it’s not an NTSC problem

    I am using NTSC media and making an NTSC DVD like I have in this

    work flow for over 10 years. The problem is that DVD Studio Pro is no

    longer working properly on an old Mac. I need to reset to factory settings,

    which is not working, or get a suggestion for DVD authoring software

    like Roxio Toast 19 that works well

    to author DVDs on a Mac.

    Is your media out of spec? (why I asked before)
