          What version of Premiere Elements are you using and on what computer operating system is it running?

           

          You can do all at one time if you use the special project presets which reverses field order automatically

           

          NTSC or PAL

          Hard Disk Flash Memory Camcorders.

           

          Pending details from you, I would generalize further with...see if selecting the clips involved, right clicking in the selection, selecting Time Stretch/Reverse Field Dominance will work to apply Reverse Field Dominance to all. It "seems" to be working in Premiere Elements 11 right now...haven't check other versions to double check.

           

          More later.

              Thanks for the follow up.

               

              With your Premiere Elements 12 on Windows 7 64 bit, you should be able to select all your interlaced clips, right click anywhere in the selection, select Time Stretch from the pop up menu, and then Reverse Field Dominance in the Time Stretch dialog, and end up with each of the clips having that setting.

               

              Please give it a try and see if that works for you.

               

              What does not work for me is

              a. applying Time Stretch/Reverse Field Dominance to one of the clip

              b. then selecting that clip, Edit Menu/Copy

              c. then selecting all the other clips, Edit Menu/Paste

               

              Looking forward to your results.

               

              Thanks.

                nope, that's reverse speed, not field dominance

                  Major Oops.

                   

                  Reverse Field Dominance has nothing to do with the Time Stretch dialog. Apologizes for the the goof. And, to make matters worse I miswrote the same thing in more than one post in your thread. So I cannot claim typing error. Not sure why this happened yesterday.

                   

                  What you want is Field Options/Reverse Field Dominance. Unfortunately, I do not see that being done at the Timeline level on a "more than one at a time" basis, either by the apply to one, copy/paste effects and attributes nor by the select all, right click in the selection, select Field Options/Reverse Field Dominance.

                   

                  As I said (and still holds up in spite of the above) you should be able to get the "all at one time reversal of the field dominance" with the choice of project preset. Please refer to the options under NTSC or PAL, Hard Disk Flash Memory Camcorders. Also, please review your details under Publish+Share as it relates to field order of interlaced video (See Advanced Button/Video Tabl of preset).

                   

                  Thanks for bringing this to my attention.

                      If you try the Hard Disk Flash Memory Camcorders project preset approach to reversing field order, please let us know if that had any impact on what you were trying to correct with the application of reverse field dominance to more than one file at a time at the Timeline level..

                       

                      Also, check out your project preset to make sure that it matches the properties of your source media. In Premiere Elements 11 and 12, the project takes over the setting of the project preset so that it matches the properties of the first video dragged to the Timeline. Sometimes it does not OK, and sometimes not. When not, then you need to set manually the correct project preset. (See File Menu/New/Project with its "Force Selected Setting on this Project." After that you drag your file to the Timeline.)

                       

                      If you need help on that, please let us know the properties of your source media, such as, video and audio compression, frame size, frame rate, interlaced or progressive video (assumed interlaced by the nature of your question), field order of interlaced video (upper or lower field first), file extension, pixel aspect ratio.

                       

                      Also, what is your intended export type for this Timeline?

                       

                      If any of the above can be of help, please do not hesitate to post again.

                       

                      Thank you.
