when i'm starting a new project, you can sometimes choose 'progressive' and I was wondering what that means and will it affect my rendered footage...

Have you checked the manual?

yes... it just says that there is a description of the mode when you click on it and there is no difference in the description of the frame mode options and those that are not...

Frame mode on cameras is when it films in a progressive mode.
The final release version of Chromy has a new project system that makes starting a new project somewhat simpler.

is that common or uncommon? if it will make my picture quality better in anyway that would be helpful because my camera is not the best in the world...

If you didn't film in frame mode, don't use the frame mode option. Use the normal one.

Is progessive the feature on like 3ccd cameras where you put the power up, but you can push it an extra height. It gives a slower kinda more movielike effect??

True progressive is when one whole frame is captured at a time unlike interlaced where the frames are, well interlaced.
I dont think any MiniDV cameras have true progressive except one sony.

actually quite a few cameras have progressive mode, including the el-cheapo JVC I had. It's just called 'sports mode' that's all.

I can't think of any real reason to use it unless you are planning to print your footage to film. According to the XM2 manual: "The frame mode can be used when you wish to look at video, frame by frame, free from field slippage (the horizontal combing you see on progressive computer monitors). Frame mode may not appear completely smooth during playback. Since the framerate is close to that of a movie, this mode can be used to create a "cinematic like appearance.""
Whatever that means.
I guess the only answer is to try it and find out, but I think the answer would be No, you don't want to film in frame mode.

I should imagine the same as 35mm only, er... smaller
Oh and I think they have a lower framerate, but I couldn't tell you what it was.

rmw- are you talking about 8mm film cameras, like super8? Or are you talking about video cameras, like Hi8?
