The issues surrounding program length and
pitch control are no different than if both the
NTSC and PAL masters were created via

Attempting to create SMPTE DF or NDF from
EBU code playing at a modified 24 FPS can
be loads of fun.  Unless there are extraneous
circumstances the best way to go is to generate
brand new SMPTE code on the NTSC master in
