Re: Using Progressive footage in comp that will be interlaced... how to interpret?

If it is progressive then you have no choice other than to leave the seperate fields option set to 'off' any other choice will simply reduce the vertical resolution by half.

This will have no bearing on your plan to output as 'lower field first (DVCPro 50 codec)' other than the section with the HD footage will be progressive and may not match your interlaced footage too well.

If the footage miss-match is obvious and a problem you could de-interlace your interlaced footage or ...(now this is where it gets compex for the faint hearted)... turn your progressive footage into interlaced footage by using the time warp plug-in to stretch it to 200% in length (half speed / twice as many frames) then interlace this footage back down to normal speed interlacing every two frames (effectively becoming fields) into one frame.

Got it ?
