To figure out if your footage is progressive or interlaced, click on the video in question to enter the video screen.

From here, you'll be able to tell if a video is progressive or interlaced under the 'Video Info' tab.

If the video is progressive, this is what you'll see (the encircled 'p' denotes progressive footage):

If the video is interlaced, this is what you'll see (the encircled 'i' denotes interlaced footage):

Interlaced footage can be either TFF (top field first) or BFF (bottom field first). The video below is TFF.

Note: If you see that your video is interlaced, it is important to select a deinterlacer during processing. This is not yet something that Pixop does automatically.


For more information, check out this article for interlaced video and this one for progressive.
