I have recently been using AVCHDCoder to encode and burn video in AVCHD format to DVD R. Well I absolutely love the program except for one thing that I just cant seem to figure out....and that is why cant I start with an mkv NTSC file say 23.976 FPS, and then change the frame rate in AVCHDCoder to 25 FPS to out put a PAL file!
I can't believe I can't find anywhere in AVCHDCoder to change the frame rate to a PAL setting!? It works the other way around though, it will change PAL to NTSC, in fact, correct me if I'm wrong but you don't actually get a choice it always seems to spit out NTSC files!??
Because I couldn't find a way to convert to PAL using AVCHDCoder (big sigh), I used UncropMKV to change it first on my MKV file which worked fine. So far so good! Then however, after encoding in AVCHDCoder I (this was PAL 25 fps so I didn't change any settings) I ended up with a NTSC 23.976 fps M2ts file!
Surely there must be a way to out put an NTSC file as PAL - if it converts one way (PAL to NTSC) why wouldn't it convert the other? shouldn't be difficult should it.
Am I missing something here - is there something in the setting/options? I really would love to keep using AVCHDCoder for it's simplicity and quality encoding but it looks like I may have to search elsewhere.
Any help would be greatly appreciated

Hi Baldrick and thanks for the advice.
My TV will play NTSC videos but I sometimes pass on my videos to friends and some of their TVs wont play NTSC videos.
However, thankyou for your recommendations. I have used MultiAVCHD but have not Used BFtoAVCHD. I found MultiAVCHD a very good program but a little too complicated at times. BDtoAVCHD however sounds like just what I'm Looking for so will have a good look.
Shame about AVCHDCoder though as I realy do like it - lets hope it get the facility to change frame rates in some futer update!
Thanks again Bladrick
