I have footage in my Media 100i on OS 9.2, 24p at 16:9. I need to get it into After Effects and/or Photoshop to do rotoscoping. Is there a trick to exporting this footage as a by reference movie or as a TIFF sequence? I know every 4th frame is repeated and in the past a TIFF sequence wouldn't export the repeated frames, causing problems upon re-importation.

Inside Media 100 i you can only have native PAL or NTSC media files. If something is shot at 24p and played out by a deck via SDI or analog to Media 100 i it gets converted in PAL or NTSC format with interpolated frames to match the 60i format.
If you export that from Media 100 i by ref or as a pict sequence you still will have a "standard" NTSC clip, and if you modify it in AE you have to render out a NTSC clip as always.
