Project settings

Source clips: DV and MPEG2 Studio Profile (off a Tricaster).

Out: DVD and mpeg4/h.264 for web video on demand.

If I start a DV-NTSC project, my MPEG-2 footage is jerky - wrong field order, can't change it.

If I start a Desktop project set to UFF, now my DV footage has the wrong field order, so it comes out jerky.

Please help,

Hey Ervin...A bit confused here....

I don't understand your workflow.
BTW, you can reverse the field order..
Right click on the clip/s, and reverse field order/dominance...

EDIT:
Oh, okay, the DV is BFF, and the MPEG2 is TFF...
Nonetheless, you should be able to right click the Mpeg2 file on the timeline, and reverse the field order..

Good luck...

That's it

I didn't know I can do this when the clip is already on the timeline... in my experience with other editors I didn't have to do it... the program recognized the field order automatically.

Still frustrating though, I have to do this every time I use the clip.

Thank you, Peter

Conform the mpeg to lower field in the Interprete Footage before dropping it onto the timeline, this will give you a yellow line instead of a red one.

Where exactly in the 'interpret footage" dialog?

Right click on the clip in the bin > Interpret Footage gives me this box - see below. There is NO option to set field order.

What version of PPro are you using?

I'd say there could be two options here...

1. Try an uncompressed project (CS3) or sequence (CS4) and make it upper field dominant, 720x480, then try to reverse the field order on the DV footage...leave the MPEG2 stuff.

2. Make a project or sequence that is progressive...then bring in the footage and interpret it and see if at least it all appears the same and doesn't look odd, even though you won't have the silky fluidness of interlace...

I'm sure there are more options, these are the first two that come to mind for me...
