I am trying to make an MPEG-2 file for DVD at 24fps (23.98). I have an HD 1080p 24fps source (ProRes 422 HQ).


Compressor refuses to create a 24fps MPEG2 for DVD. If I leave the automatic settings on the preset, it creates a 30fps file by speeding up the frames. If I try to force 24fps in the video encoding setting (instead of leaving them set to automatic) it crashes compressor ("3x crash service down"). Any help here?


I can make other formats like H.264 and Uncompressed at 24fps. But even from these new files, compressor refuses to make a 24fps MPEG-2. Ironically, the old DVD Studio Pro allowed me to import the files and encoded MPEG-2's, but even these when opened in quicktime say they are 30 fps (although they don't compress the time?).


Any help? Am I doing something wrong? I don't often work with 24fps. The file is small, so I've tried a lot of different iterations trying to get this to work including different file names, even a different machine altogether.


I'm using compressor 4.0.5. Mac OSX10.7.5
