Interlaced PAL DV

Just a quick note that if you have to roto any PAL DV footage the field order should be set to NTSC as PAL DV uses odd field first.

Tx for the note. We named the preferences according to the standard PAL and NTSC settings and included (Odd/Even) in brackets.

Perhaps we should name it:

Odd (NTSC)
Even (PAL)

And also have Odd first as it equates to “Upper”.

No problem Jay, the naming convention is correct, it’s only PAL DV that slips in this odd (no pun intended) issuse. Just thought it worth a note for anyone who is given this sort of footage.

Maybe a note in the help file under fields is all that is required, or hopefully people will check the forums. :wink:
