DVCPROHD 1080i60 footage from HVX200 - FCP says it is 1080p30 and it looks like image is melting

Hi. My DP shot in 1080i60 on the HVX and when I transferred it to FCP, it is read as 1080p30. When it plays in the viewer, it looks terrible, like the screen is melting. I did some research and figured out that the camera was set to "film mode" which I guess FCP can not process at 1080i60, and sees it as 1080p30. When I made the sequence settings at 1080i60 and add fields (upper or lower), it looks fine in playback on the canvas.

My question is, should I just edit my film this way and finish at 1080i60, or should so something else before editing? I am also planning on adding stills, old video (interlaced) and original digital animation.

I am using FCP 6 on my MacBook Pro.

Thanks, Crescent D.

What are all the specs in the browser on the clips?

Under 1080i the video can be:

1080i - 60i (AWKA 29.97) - this will be Upper Fields

1080i - 30p
1080i - 24p
1080i - 24pa
1080i - 24pn
