I always export AVCHD from PPro to Widescreen DV AVI (to then let Encore do automatic transcoding while building the DVD file) with the default settings... which I **think** are lower field first, for a DVD
Link to DVD Demystified FAQ http://forums.adobe.com/thread/544206 may explain more
What are the sequence settings used?
What are the exact export settings used?
Sequence settings are the DSLR 25p preset, 1920x1080
Export settings: the MPEG-2 DVD preset (NTSC Widescreen) with all the default options in PP CS5.5 (although I also tried exports with the field set to "none" and "upper"; neither of those worked either).
Thanks! I don't understand at all why this worked, but it did!
