    Transcoding clip from PAL to NTSC

    sholmlund Level 1

      Hi, just my second discussion post so sorry if this question has been answered a zillion times before.

       

      I need to buy a short stock footage clip that was shot in PAL DV (Standard Definition) at 720 x 576 @ 25 frames per second. I want to transcode to NTSC DV 720 x 480 @ 29.97 fps in PE 4 (by importing into a project and rendering it). Then I will use that transcoded clip in my project.

       

      Before I buy this clip, I thought I'd ask if I can expect reasonable quality or if there are any things to watch out for. I'm assuming I can do what I describe above.

       

      Thanks!

      Steve
