hello everybody

RES MAG has just requested a copy of a promo i have just completed for their next DVD but i need to provide them with a uncompressed NTSC file and the project is mastered in PAL. The project master is 720X576 but i have encoded pal DVDs at 1024 X 576 which look perfect - so i am wondering what the best way to convert to NTSC might be in terms of ratio to match my PAL 1024X576 ( i can use twixtor to fiddle the frame rate ) and because it is an animated work their is no field issues that i am aware of.

you can see the promo here

Either just drop the 25P comp into a 30P comp or use Twixtor
If you have graphical elements done in AE like text animation better break the process into parts (different comps you recomp for your final), and use AE for elements like text as AE will sample properly time between frames to generate the text character and things like that at the proper new frame time location.

I am no familiar with 1024x576 PAL to 720x486 NTSC spatially fits or you will need to crop so I will shut up on your other question.
