I have a lot of footage that was shot on a Canon XF305 in full res PAL. I need to convert this to NTSC. Will Premiere do the job well? What settings should I use? I'm using Mac OS X v10.6.8 on a Mac book Pro.
All you need is convert the frame rate, since the NTSC and PAL luma settings do no longer apply to HD footage. Yes Adobe can handle that, both with direct export and with the queue through AME.
Many thanks for your reply Harm.
Would you have any ideas for what preset settings I would export with? And which codec? There is an HD preset which compresses it with H.264. I'm trying to get the highest quality possible and h.264 compresses it.
