PAL recorded material into NTSC DVD
on Aug 2, 2014 at 3:56:41 pm


I have a question about how to make a high quality DVD from FCP7 that can read by any DVD player, PC computer or MAC. It will be projected in a big screen.

My sequence settings are:

Frame Size 1920 x 1080 HDTV 1080i (16:9)

Quick Time video settings: Apple ProRes 422 HQ

Pixel Aspect Ratio: Square

Do I have to take it to Compressor and then DVD Studio Pro or directly to DVD studio Pro? Im not sure how to set the settings to export this video.

Thanks in advance,

I always export a master clip at current settings, then use that clip in Compressor. There is no DVD that will play in all the standards, although, many PAL players will play NTSC DVDs. If your DVD is for a critical use, be sure to test the DVD in the player that will be used.
