Hi. I had to purchase a new Sony video camera in USA (NTSC 29.9fps). We are PAL, so most of my holiday movie is PAL 16:9 widescreen. When I imported the clips from the NTSC camera, I converted the clips to PAL 25fps but the audio is out of sync and appears to be too slow. eg. a male voice is high pitched and not quite audible. Is it the 'bit rate' difference causing the problem and if so, how do I change that in CS5? The PAL clips off my old camera are imported as MPG files. The new camera files are MTS. I am not sure if this is important but would appreciate some help. Thanks.
Adobe doesn't have any tools that perform adequate NTSC<=>PAL conversions, in my view. You may be better off creating a separate video for the NTSC stuff, keeping it as NTSC. Your player should be able to handle it fine.
