Just to start it off with base info:

PAL video or digital records & plays at 25

frames/sec
NTSC video or digital records & plays at 30 frames/sec
Film records & plays at 24 frames/sec

PAL & NTSC both have 2 fields for

each frame:
so PAL = 50 fields /sec (This matches the UK mains frequency of 50Hz)
& NTSC = 60 fields/sec (This matches the US mains frequency of 60Hz)

I found that my digital video is more clinical in looks than film. If I use PAL (nearer to the 24 frames/sec than NTSC), will this make it more warm?



David. Question

Hi David
Film uses 24f/s so PAL may seem closer than NTSC but is not that different as you must count the fields

(which are double) so both are very different from film rate.

There are software packages around that 'make' digital 'look' more like film and its works by making

each pair of fields into one wholeframe and this gives a more 'movie' effect.
The software also can play around with the colour saturation (another limitation of digital

is lack of colour saturation on the CCDs) unless they are big... the bigger the better.

Just some thoughts x
