So I sent a DVCPRO HD 1080i clip in a DVCPRO HD 1080i timeline from Final Cut to Motion 3 to retime it to 50%. I performed this retiming using optical flow and when I saved and rendered the motion clip in Final Cut - the interlacing was gone. Checking back in motion - I see that the interlacing appears to still be there after the retiming has occurred.
What am I doing wrong here? Or is this a limitation of Motion's optical flow retiming that I wasn't aware of? I'm not rendering out the file from Motion 3 - I'm just saving the project and rendering the embedded .motn clip back in FCP.
