When you create an interlaced project, ELab will treat each interlaced field as its own frame in the timeline. When you render your project, ELab will combine the fields back together again into an interlaced video.

There's no window that you can bring up to tell you. But it's probably interlaced. ELab detects what kind of footage it is when you create a project. So if you're using a DV clip and you just accepted the default values in the Project Settings window, then the project will be interlaced.

No, you need to work on all the frames in the timeline. Sorry if I was unclear on that. If you skip a frame then it will affect the output render when ELab tries to combine the 2 fields together.

Since you're on Windows, you may find VirtualDub quite useful. Among many other things, it will let you copy a frame of an AVI video which you can then save as an image and upload onto the web. Much easier for people to download than 22 MB.

No, as far as I know, thats right, thats why it's kind of easyer to work with progressive footage. But, hey, you'll get used to it! I have!
