i have a little 1080p29.97 footage (Canon 7d) in a 1080i29.97 sequence. Normally if there was any 24p footage or 720 footage i would run it through Shake or Compressor prior to output to handle the frame rate and/or frame size conversion.
Would there be any point in running the 7D footage through Compressor to 'interlace' it before lay off? Or would it be the same thing just to change the field dominance from None to Upper on each clip? Or can i just leave it alone in the timeline and output as is?
I know it will lay to HDCam 1080i successfully, but i was just wondering if doing either Compressor/Shake vs. Field Dominance in FCP vs. just leaving it as is in the FCP Timeline would have any noticeable visual differences. I ran a test with all 3 and looked the same to me, but was curious if anything different was happening in any of these methods.
