I have been trying to get my source material (29.97p or 23.97p) rendered out at the correct framerate becaus i was previously doing 30p for my 29.97p sources. turns out this is incorrect to do even tho 29.97p and 30p may seem to be negligible in difference. i reconfigured my kdnelive projects from 30p to 29.97p and rendered them out. the results are fine a H.264 Level 4.1 AVC video file with AAC audio at 18 Mbps 1080p 29.97fps.
i go and create a project with AVStoDVD for 720x480 resolution. 9 Mbps, ColorMatrix converted from Rec. 709 to Rec. 601 and with AC3 48KHz 448kbit audio.
Now, when my previous rendering from kdenlive was 1080p 30fps the results from AVStoDVD were perfect, but with my 1080p 29.97fps file there is a massive problem with the first 5 seconds of my video where it is garbled and also the audio is totally delayed. Picture is below.
Shouldn't I be rendering out my final video as 29.97p if my sources are 29.97p instead of rendering out as 30p? i just don't understand why 30p works with AVStoDVD and it renders it's files out as 29.97p and my rendered 29.97p from kdenlive gives it problems?

Nevermind it has nothing to do with 30p or 29.97p at all. it turned out to be a wrong version of Haali Media Splitter being installed over top of what AVStoDVD installs. So go with what AVStoDVD wants to install to avoid this nightmare. an entire day it took to figure this out, but i did figure out some other problems from this too.
