Re: Avid 25p vs 50i Project - Consequences of working progressive

As long as Media Composer knows that footage is interlaced or progressive on ingest then it will add motion adapters to convert as required.
If you import (old legacy way) then the import option has a field order/progressive choice but only in an interlaced project format.
So you would have to toggle the project format to 50i set import option for correct field order and import then toggle back to 25P

For AMA you need to check the source setting after AMA linked to see it has correctly identified it's interlaced.

The key step is ensuring all content is checked for i or P and if i what filed order. Then link into MC and check source settings are correct and set if not. From there on MC will add motion adapters as required to de-interlace your i sources if in a P project format.

The end result will be a nice *if you like that sort of thing) juddery 25P output (you should avoid rollers for credits)
