I forgot how this is done in 9.5 (someone clarify please). In TVP 10 these options don't even exist anymore since they are superfluous for animation.
Oh I see now. I changed to progressive and that seemed to work fine :) Thank you

Now just the last question about Keep Aspect option in the FX stack. Could you please clarify what is it for? Is it only for HD stuff or should I take into account all the time?

Thanks again for replying

If you would check that right off the bat, you would get the same aspect ratio of your BKG, in other words a long rectangle. You need to make it be the way you want to see the rendered project in the aspect ratio of your "camera's viewfinder". Once checked, whatever you do with the size; make it smaller or larger or tilt it, it will always maintain the perspective of your desired final product. This is important to do because since you are not using two projects here, you are not seeing your background through the "lens" of your first project. This replicates that view.

If the keyframer had a simplified mode, with an embedded timeline, it would be a symbol. It's the one flash-like quality I wish TVP had. I keep hoping to see this dynamic timeline for symbols in the near future. Something I've been holding out hope for over ten years for!
