24p films on PAL DVD

Hello,

I have been searching on this forum before asking the following questions, but haven't found any answers.

I hope I can tap of your extencive knowledge with the following question.

In NTSC you can create 24p ( film speed ) mpeg 2 files to put them on DVD. The NTSC DVD player will then add a pulldown to show it correctly on the screen.

My question is, if you have 24p footage and want to put it on a PAL DVD, is it OK to create PAL aspect reatio mpeg 2 files keeping the 24p frame speed or do I have to transform it into 25p ( PAL ) speed. Do PAL DVD players recognise 24p mpegs and do their own magic as the NTSC DVD players, or do I have to convert to 25p ?

Thank you in advance,

Frank

You can convert it to 25p by speeding everything up. You'd need to pitch shift the audio so that it sounds right.

Thanks Glenn,

I know I can change the speed , but is that how it's normally done in PAL DVD Film releases ? That means that all films in Europe are shorter then the original version no ?

I was just wondering if PAL DVD players can play 24p mpeg files loke NTSC DVD players can. If not, I will have to speed change to 25p.

Yes Frank, all movies are in Europe a little bit shorter. I once read Alexander for example, a movie of three hours long, was like 10 minutes shorter here, or something.
