Thanks-- it wasn't so bad once I figured out the workaround. The downside is having to change the native field dominance on each clip one at a time...

Okay, thanks for the advice guys-- the last few DVCPro HD 720p60 projects I cut were as 29.97 sequences, so I just wanted to make sure I was still okay with this 59.94 edit. And besides the DVD, I was
