I have a lot of European students who want to convert their legacy PAL footage over to NTSC, or vice versa, from NTSC over to PAL. One of the easiest and most economical ways I have found is to use one of the excellent plugins from Graeme Nattress. Standards Conversion, is a sweet little Final Cut Pro plugin that will allow you to convert both the frame size and frame rate from one format to another. You can burn the converted Quicktime files to a data DVD, or use them in your favorite DVD authoring program. I recently used this plugin on footage that had to be shipped to Australia where it was going to be edited in PAL.
Pros: Good Scaling and Frame Rate Conversion.
Cons: Conversion Process Takes Several Steps for Each File.
List Price: $100.00
