I am not sure because i have not tried it myself. But a client of mine told me that he used the pal setting in premiere and it exported pal even though the input video was ntsc.

As far as I know , the only thing firewire does is capture your data in its digital form and translates it to a file – it does not have a reader to analyze the type (NTSC/PAL) – this is done by your software which in most cases will work in both modes , Edius will tell you to change its project settings and restart , others may or may not.
And if you output the file into a file on your PC – then there is no problem.
If you want to really make pro videos – get yourself a pro NLE (non linear editor) and a real time video editing card . With 650 US$ you will get everything you need from a company called Canopus which currently offers Edius DV Pack , I almost bought it but opted for their more pro card DVStorm2. (for 100 US$ more you also get 3 Full adobe programs !)
