This is the note from the post house. "These are all 525 interlaced masters and digitized as that. So the ingest was native 525 29.97 AJA codec 10 bit uncompressed. Your timeline will have to match these settings. As with all telecine at that time, there was no 23.98 (24P) transfers. Hence all film is 3:2 pulldown and should be constant cadence although it might not be."
I have tried everything I can think of and burned test clips to DVD's as well. The best I have gotten was jumping over to progressive because the interlacing is a mess otherwise. These clips are all .mov. 720 X 486, when I drag them on the timeline it makes them progressive but the titles still jump. This is a turn key PC based system. THey came to me in .mov format.
Any Ideas? Thanks!
There are no "import" settings for PP. Media just comes in as it is.
General wisdom is to match the sequence to the media.
I recently had to convert some clips from a very old Matrox system, with clips delivered in the Matrox codec at 720x486. First, in the Bin, check the clip Properties and look at the field order, should be Lower First. Use Modify > Interpret if needed to correct. Sequence settings should be 720x486, NOT 720x480.
For export, DVD is 720x480, so you would need to use CROP settings in AME to remove the 6 extra lines. Which ones? Trial and error. I ran a series of short test clips (same clip exported multiple ways), trying Top and Bottom settings of 6,0 and 5,1 and 4,2 and so forth, naming clips accordingly to keep track of results. These clips were dropped into a 720x480 sequence and reviewed to see which looked the best to determine final output settings.
I hope you find this helpful.
