And, you also said:
so now i export the footage in its native size and resolution and it comes out interlaced
So... what's the question? If you start with interlaced footage, and export to the same thing, it'll be interlaced.
ive tried to de-interlace it and nothing seems to work.... bloody hell .argggggh....
Why do you want to deinterlace it?
Ok....frustrating... i guess i'm a noob...or maybe premiere doesnt like 1080i
when i export it it looks like bloody crap....its ghosting and i can see jaggies.... i'm just having a hell of a time with this footage.. its not crisp and clear
maybe my workflow is wrong i dont know.... there arent many options in cs5... and doesnt matter what option i use for a new project the footage still wants to be rendered ....argggh......
Drag one clip to the 'New Iten' Icon in the bottom of the Projerct window.
It should open a New Sequence appropriate to your footage.
Now tell us what your export settings are?
