Resolve 12 rendering progressive as interlaced
Okay, so this is super-specific, but I'm praying someone on here can figure this out.
I've started editing in Resolve 12, using footage shot as follows: 1080p MOV H.264, 25fps progressive. When I add this to Resolve the default project (which is 24fps) offers to change the project settings to match the media - so I select that.
Now when it comes to rendering I want to keep it as MOV H.264. So I choose those settings, render... and it comes out as *interlaced* 25fps.
So I start the whole process again, exactly as above - but now use 24fps footage (everything else the same). Export as above, only at 24fps. And bingo, the footage is 24fps progressive.
I'm happy to acknowledge that I'm not an expert, maybe I'm misunderstanding something, maybe it doesn't matter that the 25fps version is interlaced - it looks fine on playback. But I've always been of the mind that you want to change as little as possible in terms of format, and more to the point it's just bugging me that it seems to be doing this automatically with no obvious way of stopping it.
Any thoughts/advice greatly appreciated.
