PAL to NTSC in FCP, Compressor or iDVD?
on Jun 19, 2012 at 11:51:25 am

Hi guys,

I'm currently editing some PAL footage from a Canon DSLR which has been compressed into an Apple Prores which measures 1920 x 1080.

I need to put my finished project on a DVD so it to play in the US.

Should I export to NTSC in FCP, Compressor or simply setup iDVD as an NTSC project and hope that dropping my completed PAL is converted into NTSC?

What are my options to convert my PAL footage into NTSC and at what stage should I do it?

Finally what NTSC video format would be ideal for HD video on DVD?

Thanks in advance!

After you finished editing your sequence in PAL.

You need to Convert from Pal to NTSC. Compressor can do that. For $99, Nattress plugin can also do the conversion.

The only high definition DVD option is Blu-ray.
