Square pixels output to Pal land

Well we finally finished two video clips shot on RED one and the quality is amazing, we have to output SD PAL...so can i master using these settings in FCP:

786 by 576
Square pixels
Progressive
Uncompressed 10 bit 4:2:2

knowing that PAl for broadcast is non-square and interlaced.

i tested the signal, and previewed in our machine room and it looked fine, so will there be problems in the actual broadcast?

Thank you.

No there should not be any,

Since RED is not a "thin raster" codec so there is no horz. compression to mess you up.
