However, if i set the field order as "(None) Progressive" it exports fine. Does anyone have any idea what the problem is? The footage is HDV from my Sony HC3. I've tried updating to v4.0.1 with no luck.
When you set h264 in Premiere and then Adobe Media Encoder starts it resets the bitrate and some other settings.
BTW Why do you wanna save interlaced instead of progressive? Progressive is always better unless you have to send to analog broadcast in a 3rd world country. I imagine this isn't the case since your trying to export h264.
