I had the same problem. All the usual programs on Mac, like Compressor and FCP and whatnot can't make NTSC properly. They drop frames and do weird pulldowns that end up looking terribly jittery. I finally found a remedy - download the software JES De-Interlacer (think it's a freeware) and your problems are solved. That little program works magic on PAL to NTSC conversions - don't ask me how, but it's more akin to making averages and re-calculating for the new speed, filling in in-betweens.
