Neat Video Green Tint

I've been using Neat Video for a lot of very underexposed shots on a wedding, but I'm running into trouble with it imparting a strong green tint to everything after rendering. If the video with the plugin is viewed in the timeline in FCP I don't get the tint, but after it's rendered to DV all the black has a green tint, and it's far too noticeable. Pulling out the green works to some extent, but it's guess and check and there should be a better way.

A source of error I just thought of could be the fact that I'm mixing scaled down 1080i on an SD timeline. That is, the HD video is at 50%, which is the default when you bring HD into an SD timeline. The HD is the only video with the Neat Video plugin on it and it's being rendered to SD.

I've quit shooting HD for timelines that I know will be SD, but I'm too far in the edit to re-encode the video as SD.

Anyone have any ideas? I'll probably email the company as well.

Yes, Tim, would suggest a post in the Neat Video support forum, they are fast at responding. I've been doing a lot of NeatVideo'ing recently with no problem, but then again I'm using 24P on the timeline. That plugin has saved tons of footage for me, and enhanced other footage.
