Re: OT: Mastering advice for universal compatibility (NTSC, PAL, SECAM)

NTSC will play on any Region 1 (North America) or Region 2 (Europe and Japan) player. I don't know about the rest of the world. However, the rest of the world will either be PAL or NTSC when it comes to DVD there are no other formats.

You are right that it's the TV where the incompatibility lies in Europe. Most TVs work fine, but not all.

For safety and courtesy I would make a PAL and an NTSC version.

For conversion, you're 24p right - if you can cope with a 4% speed up, just conform to 25p in Cinema Tools for PAL, and I'd just use decent software MPEG2 compression.
