  • PAL 25fps conversion to NTSC 24fps

    I have an NTSC 23.98 fps DVD project with a couple of PAL 25fps clips on the timeline. The PAL clips look and sound acceptable but in the interest of getting it as good as possible, should I just leave as is or is there a better way to do the PAL to NTSC 23.98 conversion.

    change the frame rate of the Pal clips to 23.98 in clip properties, ideally in the bin prior to adding to timeline

      Thanks
      What about NTSC 30fps to 23.98?

        well if you are making an NTSC DVD, the ideal frame rate should be 29.98 upper field first

        but you can also use 23.98

        you can always apply optical flow to any clip that does not match the project setting and it will look smooth

        example: If I make a PAL DVD, I use 25fps upper field.
        If I need to include a 23.98 clip I change its frame rate to 25 and still apply optical flow
        If I need to include a 29.98 clip, I will not change the frame rate but will apply optical flow

          Hmm, very interesting.
          Do I understand correctly:
          Optical flow is recommended when I have a NTSC 29.98 clip to put onto a PAL 25 timeline or in the case with the project I am currently on, NTSC 29.98 clip put onto a NTSC 23.98 timeline.

            yes, whenever a clip frame rate does not match the project frame rate, you can benefit with certain clips

            if clips don't have much motion, you don't need to bother, ley your eyes be the judge

            note that 23.98 is not the ideal frame rate for NTSC DVD unless all footage is progressive and you follow the proper hollywood film to NTSC DVD routine
