NTSC to PAL

Hi Guys,

I've had an enquiry from a guy in the CONUS in regards to a video he shot whilst here 'Downunder' (Autralia).

He'd like to knock up a PAL version for his buddies down here and has asked me what the best way of going about it is.

He's using PE 8, which I have no knowledge of and I also have no clue about converting to PAL.

Would someone mind chipping in and helping.

Thanks,

Al

PS. Fatbiker is a forum we both use, it's for fat tyre bicycles.

Here is his email;

Hi, I'm a Fatbiker from Michigan in the US. I was just in Australia a month ago for a music seminar (Chapman Stick), in Melbourne, then drove up to Adelaide. I videotaped an entire Stick concert, now I'm trying to transfer it into a useable format for the guys back in Melbourne. He has a Mac, but my Premiere Elements 8 only has a lousy res Quicktime conversion, + a PAL DVD. Looking more like just making a TV playable DVD in PAL. Any other suggestions? I'm good with 35MM digital SLR's, rather new to video. Saw your Canon videocamera on your latest post, figured you'd know more than I would about this.

If your curious about the Stick vids I shot in Melbourne, go to:

Hi Alan..............

You can tell him to rest easy, pretty well every PAL DVD player ever made will play NTSC DVD's straight out of the box, no conversion required.
