I've got some m2v files that were encoded using Compressor. Is there a quick way to check if they were encoded with Top First or Bottom First? I want to double-check that they were encoded correctly, and if there's a quick way to tell without having to burn some tests first, it would save me a whole lot of time.
BitRate Viewer will tell what the file is flagged at.
However, that won't tell you if the file was flagged correctly in the first place. I generally wind up taking it into After Effects and dropping it onto a 60p timeline, and seeing which field order gives me correct motion.
