Field Dominance Issue (Screen Capture Included)
Below is a link to a screen capture of my current project. You will be able to see major interlacing in the video, both viewer and canvas are the same.
My project is DV PAL CCIR 601 Anamorphic 25fps 720×576.
I have checked that the field dominance is set to LOWER (even) on both the source material and sequence settings. As I understand it, working in interlaced I should see something like this on my computer monitor, but that this should not be replicated on DVD. In my case what you see in my screen capture is how my video looks on DVD.
The footage was captured from the camera with the DV PAL Anamorphic setting.
I used send to compressor and did my mpeg 2 conversion there (Best quality 90 mins), again making sure the field dominance is correct (bottom in the case of compressor). Yet I still get this interlacing when watching back on a DVD player on a TV.
I even tried changing the settings on the source material from odd then back to lower again to see it really was in lower, no change. I’ve read loads of posts on here but I just can’t understand why this is happening. All the settings check out, what am I missing?
My FCP version is 6.0.6.
Many thanks to any and all who reply in advance!
