I'm having a problem with rendering a clip on AE.
In my composition settings, I've set D1/DV PAL Widescreen (1.46). However, AE keeps rendering a file with a different aspect ratio (1.0926 instead of 1.4568), and also renders it as Upper field first instead of Lower field first. I'm using Sony Vegas as my editing program, and all the other clips I have there have 1.4568+Lower, so it looks totally wrong next to them. When I correct the settings of this clip in Vegas to the correct ones, it gets cropped pretty bad.
I can't seem to figure out what I'm doing wrong in the rendering process on AE - can anyone please help? Is there someplace else I need to enter settings except for "Composition Settings"?
Have you tried dragging the clip onto the Make Comp icon at the bottom of the AE project panel? It should make a comp that matches the clip specs. When rendering, you'll want to set the proper field order yourself.

Yes, I'm dragging the video onto the Make New Composition icon in order to create the composition, and the settings in the Interpret Footage window are fine. But somehow the rendering process creates a file that has a different pixel aspect ratio and field order. I don't see any place in the Render Queue where I can input the correct settings...
