    Why is MC First Re-Interlacing on Export?

    I'm shooting with some Sony handycams that shoot in 1080i at 60p. When opening in Media Composer First it interprets the footage as 30p and everything looks great in Media Composer. When I publish to my local drive the footage becomes interlaced terribly. I know Media Composer first doesn't have much in the way of export options. Any reason it doesn't just look like it does in MC though? It plays back great in there. I even tried a video mixdown of a short bit of footage and exported it as DNxHD, but the problem persisted. I also tried some other 1:1p 10b HD, but still no luck. Any time I export it looks interlaced now. I've used these cameras before, but I was linking the footage and didn't have any issue with interlacing. I imported as DNxHD 145 this time because editing the linked footage was slow and glitchy. My whole project is done now, so I can't go back and re-do it. I just need to know how to export without everything re-interlacing. Any help would be very appreciated.

    Hi,

    Brandalf:

    It can't be both 1080i (interlaced) and 60p (progressive). The FDR-AX700, for example, shoots XAVCS at 1080p/60 or AVCHD at 1080i/60. It'd be good to make sure of what your footage is before trying to troubleshoot an interlacing problem.

    Rather than importing, try linking and then transcoding to DNxHD.

    Sounds like MC isn't "seeing" the footage as interlaced and is treatimg as progressive. Don't forget in MC viewers you only see one field so can't "see" interlacing until you export (or use field stepping but as first doesn't support interlaced projects thats not an option)

    Make sure in the bin the clips are flagged as interlaced and not progressive.
