When I go to do my final render this message pops up: To render and reinterlace split field you must have an even number of frames to output.
What do I do?

Move your out frame one frame to the left or right.

Then you have a different problem. That error means that you have to have an even amount of frames so that they can be combined into half as many frames through interlacing IE 2,4,6,8.... To get that error you had to have had an odd number of frames IE 1,3,5,7,9....

PS. and by out frame I mean the actual project out frame, not a certain layer's endpoint.

The solution that Marek suggested should definitely work if you are getting that error.

When you work in split field mode, each interlaced frame gets split into its separate fields, so that you can work on the movie without odd interlacing problems. A side effect is that it temporarily doubles the frame-count while you work in Chromanator.

When you render the project, it will re-combine the fields into normal frames, putting the frame-count back to normal. However, to do this you obviously need an even number of frames in Chromanator, because each rendered frame requires two fields.

Try moving your in and out points around again, it really ought to work. Let us know if you don't have any luck.
