The Shift Fields Filter in Final Cut Pro

Upon placing a new clip into your sequence, Final Cut Pro will check to see if the field dominance of the new clip matches that of the sequence. If the clip does not match the field dominance of the sequence, FCP will automatically apply the Shift Fields Filter to the clip so that it will match.

If you need to adjust the Shift Fields Filter, use the direction control after you have applied the filter to a clip and have loaded it back into the Viewer Window, by going to the filters tab in the Viewer Window. If the clip you are making the adjustements for has an upper field dominance and your sequence is set to lower, set the direction control parameter to +1. If the clip is lower and the sequence is upper, set the control to -1.

The Shift Fields Filter is located under the Effects tab in the Browser Window inside of the Video Folder. To determine if your sequence setting is set to lower or higher field dominance, look under Sequence > Settings. The default is Lower (Even).
