To P or not to P that is the question
on Mar 2, 2012 at 6:51:28 pm

I've been shooting on both a Sony Ex-1 and Ex-3 for the last 2 years and have always shot 1080i thinking it would be the best resolution. However, when I edit in Final Cut Pro 7and export I get some interlacing. It's not too bad, however when I put the video in to my Adobe Encoder and convert it to an FLV file or even and H.264 I get some very noticeable interlacing. I just did a test shoot with 1080p to see how it compared. While I liked the results I got out of my encoder the viewfinder looked pretty funky while I was shooting which is not he case when I shoot 1080i. I don't know if I should switch to the P or stay interlaced. Any input would be appreciated.
Thanks so much!
Eric

Any good encoder will deinterlace if you set it to. The key part is that you must set it to do that. That said I almost always shoot progressive.

Yep, I always shoot progressive as most the time my edits are going to be watched on a computer, not a TV, but it is safer to do progressive, unless your client specifically wants it interlaced.

Mark.
