Ulead VS, PAL DVD's ok but NTSC falls over

    Have edited and assembled my AVI files, moved on to DVD creation and
    successfully burned a number of DVD's in PAL format.

    I want to send a disc to a friend in America and thought to make a NTSC
    format version of the DVD.

    At the last stage of the DVD creation set up I choose the option NTSC. It
    tells me some video info will be lost. ok. It then proceeds to convert the
    files. This takes about five hours, just as with the PAL disc.

    However when the last AVI file has been converted and the blue progress bar
    reaches 100% it stops and nothing else happens. It does not go on to burn
    the disc. No error message comes up but the only way out is to reboot.

    Using Windows explorer ir may be seen that temporary mpeg files have been
    created for each video clip, but these are not assembed into a iso file or
    anything else.

    Can Ulead Video Studio produce both PAL and NTSC format discs from the same
    source material?

    I'm using Ulead Video Studio 7 (SE), but have full V8, and could use that if
    it would help, but somehow I suspect it wouldn't make any difference.

    Do I need to select NTSC earlier in the DVD creation process?
    If Ulead cannot do it, what other application will create in both formats?

    Any thoughts or ideas appreciated.

    It seems not. I got 'failed to convert video file' when I tried to
    make an ISO image (for NTSC viewing) from a short clip.
    You can encode each source AVI file into MPG with NTSC parameters
    using TMPGEnc (it's trialware.)

    Then import the MPG clips into VS7/VS8 using the 'Create disc', 'Add
    Video' on the 'Share' section. Then burn as normal. You won't get
    the effects, overlays, transitions between scenes etc but it should
