Imagejunkies Academy: Converting DSLR footage to DV PAL

On many projects here at Imagejunkies we are still required to work with DV PAL footage and deliver a DV PAL product to the client. Obviously if you are shooting on a DSLR (eg 5D mark 2) then you are going to have to convert your original H.264 files from the camera into a suitable format to edit. This is particularly important if you want to edit clips from your DSLR into a DV project. I warn you though no matter what you do you may be slightly disappointed with the results, it seems that there is still not a perfect way to downconvert your pictures. . Any feedback is, as always, much appreciated.
