Of course, but you shouldn't have to add a shift fields filter. And I've never had to. When you tell an editing app to play something backward, well, it should sorta know what to do.

It should know what to do when you put a lower field first clip in a upper field first sequence as well. AE knows what to do. Just as long as it knows the dominance of all your media, it deals with it correctly. But in legacy a filter had to be added for some reason. The shift fields filter. I guess you never had to deal with that. It was all fine until you decided to copy to another sequence where the shift fields filter wasn't desired or needed, but yet it came right along. Doh!

But anyway, I think X deals with all this the way it should on it's own. Just like how it adds correct pulldown to 24p in a 30i sequence, or interlaces 60p in a 30i sequence. Good stuff.
