    Hi, I was wondering if it really matters whether or not you set the Fields to Progressive or Upper in the Sequence Settings of a sequence.

    I basically just realized that I have mixed settings on 3 sequences. They for local TV commercials. My :30 sequence was set to Upper and the two :15’s were set to Progressive.

    Does it really matter what these are set to when I go to render since I set that in Media Encoder?

    If it’s set to PROGRESSIVE, then there are no fields. Progressive means a full frame of video, not interlaced. Thus why you have 1080i60, or 1080p60. The “i” is “interlaced, and the “p” is progressive. SO, if you set fields to PROGRESSIVE, that means a full frame of video, where the fields are the same…thus a full frame of video.

    UPPER is a setting for interlace fields. LOWER is too, but that’s for SD interlaced. If you need to deliver interlaced, then you should be set to UPPER.

    What I need to do very often is send the same edits to multiple stations.
    Most of the them want 1080i but some of them still want 720p.
    I work in 1080i but use the same edit for the 720p renders.
    I always assumed that Premier or Media Encoder converted when it needed to as per my render settings.

    Anyway, from now on I will make sure I have my sequences set to Upper and I guess I will try to research the best way to go about rendering these to 720p.

    Just thought of another way to ask this.
    If I have a 1080i Sequence, and I need to render it to 720p,
    Can I just export it that way?
    Or would I get better quality if I create a new 720p Sequence and put my 1080i Sequence into that before rendering?

    Yes, you can have a 1080i sequence and export a 720p .mp4 in Media Encoder. When Media Encoder opens from scratch, the video settings usually default to match the source. This includes width/height of your sequence and the field order (Progressive or Upper Field). You can change this as needed.
