RE: Video Release: PAL and NTSC

The only problem with the aforementioned 
theory is that  pal digibeta is not capable 
of playing back at 24 fps! Offspeed 
playback, the process that plays back the 25 
fps tape at 24 fps, is possible when using 
D1 or DCT. My suggestion is to record your 
pal transfer to D1, and use an anamorphic 
format converter to extract the 525 release 
master from the 625 original transfer 

Some caveats: the 625 transfer master will 
play back 4% slower at 24fps than 25 fps. 
This means that the audio will have to be 
pitch corrected up 4%, and that the timecode 
will have to be interpolated as well. 

This assumes, of course, that the feature 
has audio to go with the picture! 

Good luck!
