well , if it is progressive, there is no field order, since there is no field at all....

You should choose the progressive option. Some programs, if you set field order to upper/lower, will process each field individually. That doesn't make too much of a difference though.

Ill check it out,
seems to me that in After Effects if you select no fields, you'll lose half of your information because of the way progressive scan is encoded to dv.

Or perhaps I am not understanding you correctly.
