Which Video Region do you live in ?

You need to tell Movie Studio which region you live in or what type of camera you use. There are three main video systems being used on Planet Earth - NTSC, PAL and SECAM. If you are un-sure as to which system your country/region uses, then please refer to this excellent map on Wikipedia.

Please note that if you are in a SECAM country, you can also use the PAL System. So always choose PAL in Movie Studio settings.
