We are about to go to master tape for our hour-long documentary which incorporates a number of different footage sources. We have already converted all of our non-23.98fps footage to our 23.98 ProRes timeline and color corrected; but we are just realizing that in our Quicktime movie there is a small amount of headswitching visible in footage that was shot HDV Pal 25fps. We did not notice this after the conversion at the quality control session.

We are prepared to blow this up 2-3% if necessary, but it's not ideal since this footage is HDV. We are wondering if it's possible that this is an underscanning issue: that we are seeing a part of the frame that no one will see through any form of projection or broadcast. Does anyone have any experience with this issue? Do you know if broadcasters will reject footage with this problem?

Many thanks.
