I have a complete 23.98 motion project that is to be a :5 tag for a :25-5 TV spot. I'm laying out the graphics in Motion and exporting to FCP to create the master file with alpha channel. However, the master I was given is 1080i29.97 ProRes file.
What I want to know is if I use this project at 23.98, and when I go to export a ProRes 4x4 file, and I change the Options on the Output tab to Use: 29.97 with Field Rendering checked, will motion add in pulldown or simply convert to make the 23.98 project an interlaced 29.97 file with Upper field first?
I did a test with the above settings and after importing into FCP it tells me the files Field Dominance is NONE, when I know it was set to Upper field first. Is this just another improper wrapper from ProRes? Is my process okay to use or should I just start a new MOTN project at 29.97 to match the FCP sequence?
