Compressor 50fps to DV conversion: no interlacing

Hi everybody,

I'm doing a DV -> TIFFs -> QT uncompressed -> DV conversion to rotoscope several elements on DV video.
- Original DV is PAL with 50 fields per second
- resulting in 50 TIFFS per second (50 full frames using Compressor's Motion Estimation)
- resulting in an uncompressed QT with 50 frames per seonc
- resulting again in PAL with 50 fields per second.

Everything is working fine, with the exception of the last step: when I tell compressor to take a 50 frames-per-second file and make it into a 50 fields-per-second DV stream, it duplicates every 2nd frame, resulting in 25 frames-per-second video with no interlacing.

Can somebody tell me the proper setting so that compressor makes proper 50 fields-per-second video out of 50 frames-per-second output?

Thanks!

If somebody finds this, here's the solution: In the frame controls tab, I had to change the "output fields" to "lower first".
