Are Video clips PAL or NTSC?

Some Shutterstock footage clips are available in NTSC/ATSC format and others are available in PAL/576i format. This is dependent on how the videographer filmed and uploaded the clips.

To check the format of a clip, look at the frames per second (FPS) displayed with each clip. NTSC clips are generally 29.963 FPS and PAL/576i clips are generally 25 FPS.

Keep in mind that frame rates can vary. In some cases, the videographer may offer clips in multiple frame rates or formats. You can view other clips from the videographer's portfolio by clicking on the contributor's name in the "Copyright" field.
