FCP Exporting no field dominance...
on Apr 11, 2011 at 5:32:52 pm

Hi Gang,

My Final Cut Pro sequences, despite having the appropriate 'upper' field dominance for HD and 'lower' for SD is exporting a QT with 'none' field dominance. As a result, it keeps getting kicked back by the station. Frustrating!

Any ideas as to how I can resolve this issue and have my exported clips have the correct interlacing?

Hello,

How are you exporting the quicktime?

I have tried several ways. I have done the typical export. I have tried Export through QT compression (applying upper dominance in these settings). I have even tried taking the progressive exported QT and interlacing it within Compressor. No dice on any of these tactics.

So to make sure I understand - in both upper and lower field dominance timelines, you get a QuicktIme that says that it has no field dominance?

When you export a QuickTime Movie (not Quicktime conversion), the Quicktime should correspond to whatever your sequence settings are.

I know! That is why I am so freaking frustrated.

Things to try if you haven't already - Create a new project and try exporting there, create a new account on your Mac and launch the FCP project there. What version of FCP and QuickTime are you on? Maybe there is an incompatible combination.

Is your footage interlaced?

If you are sure that you have rendered everything with the proper field order, then the problem is that the people in the TV station don't know how to interpret the correct fields order.
You now that QT/FC doesn't shine on flagging the files field order but this should be easily corrected in any pro system.
