NTSC to PAL Problems
by Matt Hargrave on Aug 23, 2012 at 3:54:44 am
I'm having some trouble when converting a NTSC animation project into PAL for delivery. Most of it looks fine but whenever there is a fast camera move or quick action on screen it looks jumpy. I've tried converting these specific clips using numerous programs, settings, and processes with no luck. It still always looks off in the PAL version when it looks fine in the original NTSC. I've tried using AE, MPEG Streamclip, and Compressor to convert the footage with no luck. Any help would be appreciated.

NTSC pictures contains less Movement blur than PAL because the standard shutter time in an NTSC camera is lower. Also in the NTSC-PAL conversion process are dropped 1 in 6 pictures of the original.
All this makes than the converted files will always look choppier than the original.
You can try to add some Movement Blur in post, but you will need to use a good plugin (ReelSmart MB).
