1. Use AE to invert the field order of your clips. Use the inverted clips from AE as your source files in PPro. In my experience, AE does a much better job of inverting field order than PPro.
2. Investigate ReVision FX's FieldsKit. Really good stuff, that.
3. Frame Blend only affects speed-changed clips. It doesn't affect anything that is running at normal speed.
4. If your project is interlaced, you don't need to touch the Field Order options in PPro. Your exported output will be just fine.
I'm sure AE does much better at a number of things. The problem unfortunately is not being able to tell what's really going on wtihin PPro. If Adobe would utilize the AE clip viewer in PPro, then it would be a simple matter.
I do have the Revision tools for AE BTW.
So on a clip w/o any sort of time stretch, there's no rendering hit then?
I've some of these rogue 3rd+ generation clips with dubious capture lineage that turn out generally to have upper first and you simply can't tell until I do a test DVD. Think I pretty well have them set now and doubt if I'd gain much going the AE route on them at this stage.
Thanks for the suggestions for next time.
You can use AE to separate the fields. Then when you step through them you can easily tell if you have the right order.
