Import Cineform Intermediate into AE image quality

I am having quality problems with imported Cineform Neo HDV Intermediate into After Effects. The video has "mini blind" looking edges, and I can't seem to get around it. The m2t captured video imports fine into AE (see attached file 01...), the Cineform Intermediate looks poor (see attached file 02...), but the same Cineform AVI file can be viewed in Windows media player and it looks fine (see attached file 03...). I've captured the videos in AE at 200% to show the differences.

Background: Latest versions of Cineform Neo HDV and After Effects CS3 running on Windows XP Pro.

I suspect that After Effects is not reading the file correctly; any ideas of what I should check next?

Thanks for any ideas...

Doug

Check the field ordering, seems to be reversed.

That was it; Field ordering was set to "none" and resolved the issue when changed to "First"!

It would have taken me a long time to figure that one out - David thanks for your help!

In HDLink set you encoding format to interlaced if that matches your source, then the importer should automatically set the correct field order.
