PAL DVDs

I need to create both a NTSC and PAL formatted DVD. I will be using FCP 4 and IDVD 4. The originating footage is all NTSC. Can someone descibe the workflow. I've never had to create a PAL DVD before so I'm not certain of the proper procedure. I do know that you must select PAL in the iDVD preferences, but I also believe the source footage must be converted to PAL as well. Any help in this matter would be greatly appreciated.
Many Thanks, Aldo

You will have to convert the footage to PAL then probably just check a box somewhere in iDVD. You can convert using the Nattress Standards Conversion filters in FCP4 or you can have a post house do a tape-to-tape conversion for you. Compressor 2 from Final Cut Studio does NTSC-PAL conversion, so if you can get access to that it might make your life easier.
