No, from my experience frames (30fps) are:
frame3+frame4 (interlaced)

or some alike that. I didn't find a way to get a field instead of frame
and wrote filter just to skip that interlaced frame and it reducing the
framerate from 30 fps to 24 fps well. I've experimented with that and it
finds only 2-5% interlaced frames beside of 24fps framerate so I've
decided it's ok. May be I'm wrong and there is a way for filter to get
not full frame but one field (half of frame) instead so then correct me,
please. :)

    With best wishes.
