DVD authoring - interlaced or progressive
on Aug 4, 2011 at 1:57:41 am

Hi,

I author DVDs as interlaced from footage that is shot as interlaced. I always understood this to be the best and most compatible way to do things.

In 2011 with nearly everyone having a HDTV or upscaling DVD/blu-ray - should I be encoding all my DVDs progressive?

Cheers,
Ollie

Hi Oli,
I wouldn´t do this as you loose 1/2 picture-informations as it needs be de-interlaced.

progressive is only interesting if you need to produce a DVD for computers only, and they can also do a deinterlacing.

we are still broadcasting interlaced 1080i60 for US and 1080i50 for europe. I know the europeen roadmap from EBU (europeen broadcasting union) has declared they want to switch to 1080p50 broadcasting within the next 10 years - so you still have time to think about it! ;)

cheers

danny
