My sony hvr vie shoots what it call 'progressive'. This is explained by Sony as 'scanning progressively' yet laying down to tape as interlaced. Result is that FCP won't accept it as 'progressive' and you have to treat it as interlaced.

Hi Andy, the problem is that FCP 6 does not have a capture or edit preset for PsF. It offers either Interlaced or progressive presets. PsF is neither true progressive or true interlaced. So if I'm aiming at a Progressive product say for Bluray and I want to shoot using PsF which 'scans' progressively I am stuck with having to ingest the 'progressively scanned ' footage into FCP as interlaced which it isn't.
Yes I can capture it as anything I want and render the arse off it but that's getting it wrong from the get-go.
Just as a comparison, for a long while I was shooting 'progressively' as I thought, making a progressive m2v for SD DVD and importing it into DVDSP, all the while ignorant that DVDSP ONLY does interlaced. DVDSP would accept the progressive footage into the interlaced track without complaint but the results were always degraded because of incorrect source material.
I don't want to make those same mistakes again with the BlUray format, I want my source material to be handled correctly from capture to disc. And at the moment it's a toss up, do I shoot progressivley, record it to tape as interlaced ( although not true interlaced ) orthen import it into FCP as, WHAT? interlaced or progressive ? and render the arse off it before I start working with it.
Thats my conundrum, hope its clear
