    Correct PPro CS3 Project Settings for Neoscene/Cineform 1080 60i .avi files?

    Robert James W
      I am looking for clarification on the correct Premiere CS3 project settings for AVCHD 1080 60i NTSC files converted with Neo Scene with the "maintain source frame format" option.


      Should the PPro project settings for "Field" be upper or lower field first?


      On a Cineform discussion board I was told all interlaced HD footage is upper field first.


      However, I have found that a PPro project setting of upper field first results in much more sluggish playback than lower field first.


      So seems there is additional processing needed with the upper field first project setting and this suggests to me that lower field first is the proper setting.


      Any thoughts from NeoScene/Cineform users out there?




      The project settings I have been using are:

      Editing Mode: Desktop
      Timebase: 29.97
      Frame size: 1920 x 1080
      Pixel Aspect Ratio: Square Pixels (1.0)
      Fields: Lower Field First
      Audio: 48000
