I need more info, poof. Is this all DV or HDV or mixed? Are you looking to put this on DVD, Blu-Ray... both ??
Will your project basically consist of hard cuts between exisitng clips -- or are you going to add effects, titles, etc. to the presentation?
Its a combination of interlaced BFF DV footage, and progressive 35mm footage. It may have effects over it, such as opacity layerings, text, or color changes, but i can forgo it if theres some reason not to.
edit: this will go on a standard DVD.
>progressive 35mm footage
There's no such video format. It may have started out as 35mm film, but what video format was it converted to during telecine? MPEG? DV? Uncompressed AVI? Something else? Was it originally 24 fps or 30? If 24, does it now have pulldown added?
Well, film is naturally progressive, but it was 24fps and i had it telecined to 30i, then deinterlaced it after exporting the final version, so now its 30p. The final movie is sitting in an uncompressed lagarith avi format.
edit: Just wanted to note that i deinterlaced it after finding that the interlaced export, once burned to DVD, stuttered and had a host of other problems that only went away after making it progressive. While i see the inherient answer that if all my projects are 30i thats there should be no problem keeping it interlaced, i have no doubts that the problems will come back if i dont keep it progressive.

Strange. It sounds like reversed field order. What format (HDV, DV, DVD, lossless ???) does your telecined 35mm currently reside in?
Another idea: Think about doing pulldown removal on your 35mm footage -> 24p, and then converting your DV footage to 24 (via my dv60i2film() function) and edit/output at 24p.
No can do, footage is hybrid (a mix of DV,telecined film, and 30i fx).
Stated above that the format its in is lagarith, which is lossless.
poof -- Sorry, I misstated my question: What format WAS your telecined 35mm footage in before you deinterlaced it? Usually, a standard deinterlacing of telecined footage -> 30p does not provide very nice results.
Can you post an original snippet of one of the 35mm clips in question? I'd like to see what the problem is.
Another ooption here would be to make a separate MPEG2 file (and thus, DVD title) for each type of footage -- then "i" could stay "i", "p" could stay "p", etc.
