NO - iDVD set's Region to Zero - open to all nations
PAL and NTSC - Has nothing to do with Region coding - They are TV-Standards
• PAL = 25 frames per second (most common system in EU)
• NTSC = 29.97 frames per second (standard in USA etc)
Most PAL DVD-Players can playback both PAL and NTSC (on old TV NTSC in Black/White)
Few NTSC DVD-Players can playback PAL
One can create a Project in one standard in iMovie and set iDVD to the other one.
• CONVERSION is made BADLY - the DVD is barely worth to be viewed !
I do (when sending DVDs to US)
• Export out my PAL movie as full quality QuickTime .mov
• Convert it to NTSC via JES_Deinterlacer (free from Internet)
• Set up a new iDVD Project and this to NTSC standard
This way gives very good result (I'm told) and alternative professional frame converting tools - Has astronomical costs - and resulting quality barely noticeable
BUT - If DVD is played on a Mac - then PAL or NTSC - DOES NO MATTER AT ALL !
