    Hi, I am wondering how to force AME (media encoder)to recognize that the source AE-composition is separate-fields and should be rendered interlaced (fields).

    When I import an AE-composition into AME via dynamic-link, it always shows up as a “progressive” source. It this just a cosmetic problem? Because it seems that if I then encode in AME as interlaced (upper first) the result seems correct. But I would like to know for sure: is there some setting I am missing in AE or AME?

    Thanks Dave, this is the one I was looking for:

    When Adobe Media Encoder imports a video asset, it attempts to determine the pixel aspect ratio, frame rate, and field order for that asset, as well as how to interpret the alpha channel (transparency) information. If Adobe Media Encoder is wrong about any of these characteristics, you can explicitly assign the correct interpretation.


    Select one or more items in the encoding queue.

    Choose File > Interpret Footage.

    Choose the appropriate interpretation settings.

    Using AME with dynamic link to AE has proven to be much more stable than exporting bizarre formats directly from AE. That is after learning one of Dave’s golden rules

    of always exporting uncompressed. It is just sometimes space/time demands a minor short-cut and the dynamic-link seems to be exactly that.
