exporting 1080P 60 as Interlaced
Someone gave me an MP4 file that was a Progressive file 29.97P – They wanted DVD’s made – and I was able to change the export to 720×480 Anamorphic from 1080 and 29.97i from 29.97p which was really nice since it plays much smoother on a DVD (stupid interlaced video! lol)
Anyways, I had just done a shoot in 1080 60P but when I tried to do the same thing, it wouldn’t give me a 60i choice for export… only Progressive….
I wonder if I exported the file and then brought it back in, if it would allow me to do that? Mimicing what I did with the stand alone MP4 file.
If not, how can I very easily make a 60i version of my timeline? – this way, I can make stuff for the web and author DVD’s that look much better…
I was also curious – what happens if I just choose the DVD option as export? – I see it gives a very basic menu which is better than nothing, but will it convert Progressive to Interlaced there too?
I just wanted to see how I can do this easily… worked great on that MP4 file…
