I'm new to the field but I was sort of baptized by fire at work and now I need to be able to convert video files NTSC <--> PAL.
I am in the TV business so we deal with all sorts of codecs and we need minimal quality loss to keep the broadcasters off our ass.
I read that Nattress' plug in for Final Cut Pro 7 was the best available, but the people we used to outsource to vouched for Final Cut X with Compressor.
Which do you think is better and why? We will have a new dedicated iMac computer to run these conversions, so quality and speed are the two most important features.

Really? It seems to be script based.
Is there a steep learning curve on this one? Or perhaps a wiki or pdf guide?
The short end of it is that I will need to take files (generally .mov Apple ProRes files) of HD & SD episodes, and run them through the program for a basic standards conversion. This does that?
So one topic is not enough for you ?
And since you are using a mac you really should be asking these questions on the dedicated mac forum.
Seany, Avisynth isn't too hard to learn, but you're going to need parallels to run it on a mac.
Remember, AVISynth is a Windows app, so you will need a separate PC box, or your Mac running Parallels, etc for it to work.
