Recording in PAL

G'day
I worked in America for a time making travelogues for tourists. Used a GL-2 (NTSC). Edited w/ FCE and mastered to DVD with DVDStudio Pro. In the copyright and regions preferences in DVDSP, all boxes were selected (ie. the finished DVD's were authorised to play in all zones).
So... when I play that same DVD on my TV here in Australia it works fine, even though our system here is PAL. Over here all our VHS players and TV's are pretty much NTSC compliant though...
My question is.. if I buy a PAL GL-2/XM-2 over here and author using the same processes I am experienced in, will my final product be playable overseas?
This PAL/NTSC thing messes my brain s'times... ;)
I have heaps of questions, so I'll be bombarding DVDi for a while I reckon!!
Hope you can help, cheers
Em

That depends on what you mean by overseas. If you mean north America
then no, almost no equipment there will play PAL content (especially consumer
equipment). Most PAL countries indeed have multi-standard equipment (I can
play NTSC dvd's without any problems as well here in Holland), however in
NTSC countries they really do not seem to like PAL...

Alas!

I suppose this means I'm limited to NTSC if I want to easily send product back to the states.... Unless I get a transcoder or take it to the local production house for transfers, argh!... it all adds up.
Thanks..
