I shot our HPX500 at 30p. I used Ray Light to wrap the files for FCP. They show up in FCP in the properties window as 29.97 lower field... But I have read today that they are really still 30p-none field dominance. Is this true. If true is there a method to translate them to interlace not progressive. I am using the footage in an old clients template (interlaced) and the P2 footage is driving me crazy with interlace type problems. Yes I have tried setting the timeline to none etc. It makes it better just not perfect.
I suppose I need to get the P2-30p footage to 30i or the old elements that I have to use - logo animation and backgrounds from interlaced to progressive.
Any ideas, software or words of wisdom..
Times like these make me miss my old AB roll suite.

Have you tried to Log & Transfer the MXFs with FCP? Try that with one file and see if there's a difference. Sometimes QT and FCP interpret files incorrectly. Here's a link to Media Info. It's a program that analyzes files. It might be more accurate and I think it's a free download.
