Consolidating 1080 29.97i footage into a 1080 29.97p project

Hi all, potential newb question here but after searching and searching I haven't been able to find a good answer to the question.

I had a shooter accidentally set his recorder to interlace instead of progressive. It's green screen footage and the recorder was 10-bit DNxHD 220X but he also rolled on the camera (C100) at the requested 1080 29.97p at 8-bit color.

These are the options I'm considering, is there a 4th that I'm not seeing? Anyone know what would be ideal here or have a strong opinion? Thanks in advance.

1) Consolidate the interlaced footage into the progressive project (will there be line artifacts? work around?)
2) I haven't started editing yet and the second camera shot progressive (cover b-roll, not same green screen scenes) should I just edit in 1080i and then consolidate the progressive materials into the interlaced project?
3) Use the 8-bit MTS files from the C100 directly and have a completely 1080p project (potentially sacrificing the cleanest chroma keying potential)

-Jimmy

Initially bring the footage into a 1080p project, then move the bins into your 1080i project.
When you edit with them, Avid will add a motion adapter to convert it to interlaced. Usually looks just fine.

Oops. I see I have it reversed as far as Progressive/Interlaced, however you can use the same procedure.
