To pal or ntsc that is the question?

Hi there !
we are down under PALies and we are sending a festival entry DVD to the US and not sure whether it should be PAL or NTSC - and since the master is PAL I am guessing that Encore will not "standards convert" - any advice will accepted with open arms!

95% of all PAL machines will play an NTSC disc.
95% of all NTSC machines will NOT play a PAL disc.
If you are sending to the USA, it must be NTSC. Simple.

"Standards Conversion" of an authored disc is next to impossible to do.
Menus are a different resolution & PAR.
Video is a different resolution & frame rate.
You must rebuild as an NTSC project - redesigning all menus, and converting all Video.

Sorry about this - but that is the way it is.

The best way to convert to NTSC using a software based solution is Canopus Procoder IMO.
