I have received a drive with NTSC footage and it needs to be edited to made available in both NTSC and PAL format.
Importing the NTSC footage is straight forward, but if I need to encode it out for the PAL format, is there a process available to do this through Premiere Pro?
Harm, I found this query today as I have a similar situation. I shot a memorial service for a client who, after the fact, told me that she needs to send several DVDs to Norway! Knowing that I might be facing a transcoding challenge, I came here and found your reply. With consideration for Todd's point to After Effects (which I suck at, candidly), I am pleased to know that PAL DVD players can handle NTSC encoded stuff. THANK YOU!!!
P.S. I've seen your advice in other areas of the PPro forum and have always appreciated your insight...thanks for that, as well!
it can since PAL Tv's made since about the last 10 years have a compatability mode called "PAL 60" (60hz)
I've sent a lot of NTSC discs to europe with no problem, though I did have a client insist on PAL format a
Thank you. Since I did not know about PAL TVs in Europe, etc.being able to show NTSC discs. What I have done when making discs for Europe, is send both NTSC and PAL versions of the DVD. So far, no complaints, although I haven't done very many. Thanks again.
