Capture mode for PAL & NTSC DVD

I'm going to produce and instructional DVD and plan to use my EX1 to shoot it. The DVD may need to be produced in both PAL and NTSC versions. The majority produced will be for the PAL region however.

What would be the best mode to shoot in given this requirement? I'd obviously like the DVD's to be viewable on as many players as possible.

Do I need to shoot interlaced for this media or will progressive be okay?

Thanks

Paul.

I just checked,in Vegas,i pulled some PAL footage into the timeline(rendered yesterday as DVD PAL) and had the choice to render as NTSC if i wanted.Also Sony DVD Architec can render as NTSC.
I would of thought that whatever your editing with can do the same.

PS What is the DVD you're making ?

I shot the above footage,some in interlaced and some in progressive because there was some slomo stuff.

Thanks Paul.

I guess what I should have asked was which format would convert to both formats with the best quality. I understand that footage can be exported as either format, but I'm assuming that 1080/50i or 720/50p would be better than 25p for instance, but which of those two would be recommended for export to DV PAL & NTSC?

The DVD I'm making is archery related, it will cover various aspects from equipment setup to technique.

regards

paul.

Well I'm not sure, 1080/50i would be better than 25p for capturing motion but 720/50p will capture as much if not more detail in fast moving objects than 50i. But as the delivery media will be DVD is there a requirement to shoot interlaced?
