Creating PAL Video During the Reverse Telecine Process
It is a common practice to convert 23.98 fps or 24 fps video to PAL’s 25 fps rate by speeding
up the playback by 4 percent. If you are starting with NTSC 29.97 fps video from a telecine,
you can convert it to PAL video using two jobs.
• First job: Apply a setting to the job that performs the reverse telecine process and
results in an NTSC frame size at 23.98 fps.
Note: You could apply a setting that also converts the video to PAL; however, the
format conversion will not be done using Frame Controls and may not be of suitable
• Second job: Create the second job by having the first job selected and choosing Job >
New Job With Target Output. This creates a job that is chained to the output of the
first job. You can now apply a setting that sets the output format to PAL and use the
Frame Controls feature to ensure a high-quality output file.
