This may be a very stupid question... So is the 1080 output from REDrushes/REDAlert/RED Cine 1080p25 or 1080i50? Everyone seems to be talking about 1080p, but when I import the clips to Final Cut, it says there is a field dominance, which means it would be 1080i50. I know there are no fields created in-camera, but does the conversion make it into 1080i50 (with identical fields) to make the file size smaller, or for some other reason? Or have I just misunderstood something here?
We're trying to output prores files for chroma-keying, and I have understood that chroma-keying interlaced material is not a good idea. And we wouldn't want to go to 720p because of loss of resolution.
Thanks in advance!
