    Hi. I have just finished making a project in iMovie HD, and when I started it was set to PAL. Only now have I noticed that once it is done, iMovie has gone and changed it to NTSC somewhere along the line? How can I get it back to PAL with chapter markers intact and everything? Can I? Or... when I try to burn it from iDVD, it tells me that I am trying to burn a NTSC movie to a PAL disc, then asks me if I want to continue. If I say yes does this mean it will work in a PAL DVD player? Thanks... and please be as quick as you can!

    It sounds like your video was recorded in NTSC format. Changing the project settings in iMovie or iDVD is not going to magically change your footage into the the required format. NTSC video is 29.97fps if I remember correctly where as PAL video is 25fps.
