Hello FCPX/Compressor4 newfie here.


I just got some footage in "PAL 720 x 576 square pixel (1.00)  Separating upper field 25 fps" . FCPX render the footage at "720 x 576  (1.09) Separating Lower field 25 fps".

I cannot find anything to save my life for square pixeIs and separating field option in FCPX. Only some view options in the "info tab".


I was able to change the separating field  with Compressor4 but not  luck with square pixels. In Compressor4 the "Geometry tab"  i select the dimention 720 x 576 > Square > but the 1.000 menu stays grey out.


So my question are:


How do I tell FCPX not to change upper field to lower field.

How do I tell FCPX not to change the square pixels (1.00) to un-square pixels(1.09)

How do I render in FCPX or Compressor 4  PAL upper field square pixels (1.00)

Thank for you help
