As far as I know, BluRay legal files... meaning HD source video and not SD video... is not NTSC or PAL, it is simply BluRay
NTSC and PAL technically refer to SD video formats. In HD, only the frame rates differ sometimes, and not the frame size, but the NTSC and PAL labels get stuck to them anyway.
Please tell us what exactly the source format is, and what you want to end up with on the Blu-ray, it makes a difference.
For instance, do you have 1080i 25? 720p30? What do we have to work with? Or is it truly PAL, meaning standard definition? Was assuming HD because you said Blu-ray.

I have frame size 960x720 now and that is in pal I would like this to go to Blu Ray I have done a few test taking the 960x720 to 1920x 1080 and it ok but I know going up in sizet will soften the picture, but I was impressed what Media encode did.
So my thought are going to 1280x 720 but that looks wrong so I tryed 1440 × 1080 16x9 25.00 but then the org fottage is in Progresive so I am confused can one take Progresive to interlaced. as 1440 × 1080 16x9 25.00 is Interlaced when I look at table.
If you can help my birthday tomorrow wiil be just great.
so in short 960x720 in pal to go to a blu ray to be played in the US.
Thanks for your time. oh yes i am working in CS6 mac pro.
cool web site add a like to my page
Happy birthday, but I still am not clear on the source video format. Seems like an odd type of 720p. How was it shot? iPod perhaps? Frame rate? Editing Sequence settings in Premiere?
I may not even have an answer, but for anyone to answer, we need more details please.
You need to google BluRay specifications.
It looks like your is like DVC_Pro phaux HD anamorphic, 720x960(1.33). I believe for BluRay in america you can create a 720X1290 square pixel(1.0) at 60p or 24p. I don't think that BluRay supports 720x1280 at 30p or 60i.
You do not want to do 1080. If you create a 720x1280 sequence(1.0) in CS5-6, your footage should fit that sequence properly.
