74. Ridiculous. What about line doubling?
By similar logic, using a line doubler/scaler would cause 50% vertical compression when converting signals from 480p to 720p? Or that we'd all look like squat little elfs when upscaling to 1080p? All that matters is the aspect ratio. A 4:3 picture is going to remain a 4:3 picture so long as both formats utilize square pixels. I've converted many videos from NTSC to PAL and vice versa. Your arithmetic and indisputable fact is pretty pathetic. Whatever you need to convince yourself, I guess.
