    How to create Interlaced masterclip from Progressive Frames (x2)

    I'm in a 1080i 59.94 HD Project. When I do a trusty Pan & Zoom and check my render by advancing 1 field at a time, I see movement on each field. Very good, but now I want to try using my third party app for a Pan & Zoom + other FX. Output choices seem limited with regards to Interlaced frames... I can output sequential.png frames from inside a 59.94 project-- giving me 2x extra frames to play with.... There are other Output Export choices within the app, including Uncompressed AVI File , Open EXR, and 12 Bit CineForm Codec.... but I have not had instant luck with any of those formats. 

    Now I want to try forcing e.g., 120 png frames,(also each with movement), to create a 2 second Interlaced, not a 4 second Progressive masterclip.

    Is there a way to do it? 

    So far, best result I got that sort of does what PanZoom can do easily is this: adding a 200% Timewarp to my 4 second masterclip (made from 240 frame Sequential Import), then using  Timewarp FX on timeline using Interlace Source; Interlace Output; and VTR-style Settings. Then each field shows movement over 2 seconds, before freezing on last frame for 2 seconds.

    Is there a better way within Avid? A Console command or ??? Thanks for suggestions....

    Hi Jef, Thanks so  much for your interest. I was using something I got a few years back on a lark called HitFilm Pro, which was a very cheap way to get a look at it's dedicated lite version of Mocha, which fascinated me. Long story short: I have since learned that HF doesn't offer interlaced Exports, though it does offer Sequential Open EXR and PNG files and Uncompressed AVI movies with Alpha, plus streaming formats. But all just progressive files.  So yesterday, I took the leap and installed Fusion v9 Free and now I seem to be able to convert those Open EXR files into interlaced 59.94i 1080 DNxHD 10bit files...or just about anything. I suspect Fusion will be top quality, based on all the exciting pr and the many advanced options I see are available. A real swiss army knife and then some, like After Effects, but without the yearly licensing scheme. I must say, I'm thinking of *trying* to learn it... if just for the possibility of advanced Pan & Zooms... which I'm suddenly doing a ton of in a long format rough edit project. Many files are vertical-shaped, need cropping, and are very high-res files (some so large, they won't import or link/transcode in MC v8.4). Plus, since I'll likely be doing much of the online, I know I'll want to have Alphas for a to-be-determined sidebar graphic.  So it's a brave new BlackMagic world and maybe I'll even learn that Resolve-MC workflow, finally.

    Haven't Blackmagic rolled Fusion into Resolve?  You may not need both.

    I wouldn’t ReFuse... it could FuSolve everything.
