Hi all,

This might seem counter-productive but hopefully this will make sense. I was editor on a chap's web series which was then picked up by a small local TV station (yay me and my fledgling career). Now, it was shot and edited in 1080p25 but the specs given to us by the broadcaster specify 576i50 (Australia is WAY behind the 8 ball in broadcasting HD - we've only just started in the last few months on a couple of channels).

So, to meet their requirements, I was going through Premiere's output settings (I'm on CS5 by the way) and while I can set everything else, it still says the output will be 25fps Progressive when I need it to be Interlaced. I know that it shouldn't make any difference and that both fields will be displaying the same image but they won't accept a progressive file so that's what needs to happen.

Any ideas, chums?

That sounds weird... what are your export settings?

Take a screenshot of your export settings.

I managed to get it to change from "Progressive" to "Upper" (just needed an extra click to update) but I'm not sure how to check whether it'll be read as an interlaced file. My settings are below:





I also seem to have some issues with the output file. A couple of the still images seem noticeably blockier and one of them's been chopped in half. Examples:

Okay, I seem to have fixed my weird quality issue (h.264 level set to 3.1 rather than 5.1 for some reason) but I'm still not sure of how to check that it is actually interlaced.

To check the fields metadata you can use imedia hud (mac only) or media info . You can also import the file back to premiere and look at the native fields interpretation using "interpret footage"...

Thanks for putting me onto iMedia - that's a cracker of a program. I've been looking for a nice easy one just like it. And I checked and it was interlaced. Thanks for all your help - I really appreciate it!

Okay, scratch everything. Changing it to Level 5.1 turned it Progressive and HD which I can't change. So I'm back to square 1. Original question still stands.
