I am using Encore CS3 and would like (NEED) to create a DVD that will play on both PAL and NTSC DVD players. I have read in this forum the following theory...
Master my content at 23.976 and then import it into Encore. After output it will be interlaced by any DVD player to either 30 or 25 interlaced fps.
When I try and import into Encore I am only given the option of PAL (25fps)or NTSC (29.97), so which do I choose and how can I be sure that My final DVD is in fact 23.976 fps and will play on any format?
PS, This is all very new to me as I am a 2D illustrator by trade!
23.98 is just that in NTSC or PAL. Make an NTSC disc. Almost all PAL players manufactured theses days will playback NTSC titles. The problems might show up when the player is connected to a PAL monitor which does not handle NTSC....so your hopes of it playing on EVERY player/monitor set would be impossible.
