Thank you Selur & Lordsmurf for your quick replies.
The machine I am using Premiere on is a windows 10 machine with Premiere being up to date, along with Huffyuv
The capture machine is a windows xp machine with virtual dub 1.9.11.
There is an option during export to set the field (screenshot attached) and I do know that the video is a Top Field First video. With these settings should I technically have a very similar if not the same file from Virtual Dub, plus my corrections/edits?
I talked to adobe support and they recommended selecting an option called Reverse Field Dominance but I can't seem to find the exact meaning of it, he just told me it meant it would stay interlaced upon exporting, he didn't seem like the most knowledgable professional.
