You could try File > Edit Quality Presets
I don't actually encode in Encore - I create my assets using Media Encoder. In that case, just use an existing MPEG-2 DVD preset and manually change to UFF, and import the resulting.m2v with UFF into Encore. As long as it says "Don't Transcode" next to it, you should be good.

Thank you. But this only leaves the video in upper field. The time line is
still lower field.
Just tried the following.
Added 1080i 29.97 clips (UFF) to appropriate Premiere CC sequence
In AME, selected MPEG-2 DVD, NTSC DV Wide preset. Manually changed to Upper Field First. Export.
Import the .m2v into Encore, add to New Timeline, which then reports Upper Field First in Timeline Properties Panel.
The .m2v asset is listed as "Do Not Transcode" in the bin, so ought to burn as an UFF DVD
Which version and what is your source.
The time line is still lower field.
The timeline doesn't care.
How are you getting the timeline to be lower field? I cannot get this to happen.
I can create the timeline before importing the asset (and it was lower field), but if I add an upper field asset it become upper field also.
And either import as asset and use for timeline, or import as timeline, the timeline matches the asset.
I think OP is seeing the lower field in the new project dialog box, which you cannot change.
But you can change encoding settings when using DL.
But as said before, skipping DL is the best way to go.
Thanks. I will try that.
I export from FCP as UFF import to Encore create a new timeline place the
clip in it and it¹s LFF. Even if I transcode in compressor it still makes
the timeline LFF. Any help would be great.
Look in the project panel. What does Encore show for the field type of the asset?
I couldn't get your result with a file exported from Premiere.
If you export a 30 second section from FCP or compressor, does it do the same thing? If so, can you post it somewhere for download?
