Hi, I'm having an issue with 1080i preview within my application. Somebody had built designed the filters and graphs and is no longer with the company, and so this task has been left on my shoulders. I have attached an image to demonstrate the issue. You'll see that any motion whatsoever distorts the interlace completely and looked horrible. I don't have a graph to show because the guy who built it didn't leave it behind. Can anybody help me or try to point me in the right direction.
Also a few more things to note... the preview panel in which its being shown is 16:9. Does the physical size of the panel that holds the image matter even if its 16:9... I find that the bigger the panel the less distortion takes place. This being the case, the size of the panel i'm displaying in is 512 by 228.
Seems as if upper and lower field is reversed, Try to "right click" on the clip in timeline and look in "field options" check reverse field order and see if it helps. Cannot tell why someone would leave the project like that and what the problem really is - but I guess you will find the way to the solution there.
It looks like interlaced video taken with the camera shutter speed really slow. Have you slowed down your shutter speed lately?
You can see where it scaned one of the fields and by time it scaned the other, the hand has moved considerably. Try setting the camera shutter speed to something like 240 or higher, you may have to increase gain or open the iris to get the brightness back. Let us know, Danny Hays
