The camcorder I use is a Canon DC 100. It is a PAL camcorder. MediaInfo detects that the clips recorded by this camcorder, are interlaced, top field first. But is it possible that these clips are not true interlaced, and instead are progressive, but mediainfo detects it as interlaced anyway ?
What tools and techniques should I use if I want to check if a clip is true interlaced, or if it's progressive flagged as interlaced ? Because this information is needed to properly create a project in Sony Vegas by selecting either progressive or top field first in project properties, and it is needed for properly creating the avs script.
Should I post a clip here ? If yes, how do I post it, where do I upload it ?

It's a DV camcorder so it almost certainly shoots interlaced video. Open a DV AVI clip with virtualDub. Apply the Bob Doubler filter, Bottom Field First. Use the left/right arrow keys to step through a shot where there is constant motion. If every field in the output frame is different you have interlaced video.
You can post up to 500 MB clips here. A few seconds with motion should suffice.
it's not dv. it's a DVD cam.--

Sorry, I saw the bullet point "Canon's DIGIC DV image processor" and concluded it was DV. In any case, DVD (MPEG 2) camcorder will likely be interlaced too.
