I have a question I was hoping you may be able to help me with.

1. I have a DV PAL movie made from Final Cut Pro, I needed to send this on DVD to the US, so I actually used TOAST and re encoded the DVD as NTSC which was probably a dumb thing to do, it made an NTSC dvd, most of it is OK, however on certain bits of movement I get a sawtooth look, which i assume is a interlace or field issue. I see this when I play it back on a PAL TV, MY DV PAL movie plays fine.

As I have sent a number of these DVD's off to the States, will this interlace/sawtooth problem appear on TV's in the US ?

2. When making another NTSC movie from my PAL DV, I put a shift field filter on my PAL DV movie and put it to LOWER and when I exported this new NTSC movie it played this what I should do ? what is the best way to export a NTSC movie from FCP should I be using compressor ?
