I'm pretty new to this industry and I mainly deal in directing adult movies.
I am using a Sony Z1 and filming on HDV in 1080 50i.
I am now aware that 50i is PAL and 60i is NTSC.
I think I need to capture and edit the footage and export it as a DV AVI with NTSC settings. The final DVD has to have these settings;
Video Standard: Colour NTSC. Aspect Ratio: 16:9. Disk Format: DVD-9 Region 0. Dual Layer.
I open a NTSC project and edit, however, when I export the final edit, the quality is very low and just doesn't look right. When I open and edit in a PAL project it's fine.
Can I edit in a PAL project and save it as PAL Widescreen for the end result DVD to have the above settings? I'm very confused...
What can I do? I'm really worried about it, as this isn't something I am very familiar with. I have never had to capture before (I've always had someone else do it for me).
