    Pal??

    I'm shooting a wedding this weekend and discovered my clients live in Germany. I guess that means they use PAL and they won't be able to watch the DVD I produce for them.

    What are my options?

    In your editing software, when you save to the DVD, change the TV standard to PAL.
    There's more than one PAL standard, too
    Though with digital the output standard may not matter, as that's configured in the player.

    Thanks. It's hard to use a setting I can't even test

    Want me to test it?
    You can send an ISO image to me, and I'll burn a disc and test it on my DVD player.
    No postal delay that way
    You can also test my FTP server upload.
    Drop me a PM for details.

    most computers are able to play back pal or ntsc dvd's so you should be able to test it yourself. I use adobe Encore to build my dvds and it handles region coding and regional formats really easily.
