Interlacing of fine text with horizontal motion
on Sep 3, 2006 at 8:34:13 pm

I'm more of an AE guy, but I can't believe there isn't a simple fix for this...

I've been given a Motion project which will go into a DV timeline in FCP. It has a fine font moving horizontally. I've set the project to lower, upper, and none for field order, and field rendering on and off in the view pulldown. On export I have selected use project and canvas settings. Regardless of any of these variables, I still get 60 fields in FCP.

Anybody know what I'm missing?

Have you tried turning off field rendering? (View pull-down menu, on the upper right corner of the main window).

No way around that if you are rendering out to DV.

Technically, DV will always have nominal fields.
But you can totally have animation that updates 23.98/25/29.97 times per second instead of 50/59.98, with DV or any similar format. That's what the render fields setting is about. In other words, the interlaced nature of the format doesn't prevent you from rendering animation that essentially has a progressive time base. So much so, that when people want to render interlaced graphics from 3D applications, it's common to do it at 50 or 59.98 fps and then interpret the footage as 25 or 29.97 fps with fields.

Gabriel

Don't do an export from Motion, just set the Field Order to "None" and disable Field Rendering. Then import the .motn project file into FCP and you won't get fields when the graphic is rendered.
