De-Interlace to Minimize Noisy Shirt?
on Apr 25, 2008 at 3:17:03 pm

We recently shot a management "professional" in a "classroom setting" here at the office. We had to whip out the old XL2 as a back up for some close-up shots because our Ikegami was out in the field that day.

The guy comes in and is wearing a suitcoat so I think, okay, no problem with what he's wearing. In the middle of his opening spiel to the "class" he takes off the jacket and he's wearing a blue and white striped shirt and it's noisy as hell.

Is there anything that I can do to minimize this in post? My instinct is that if I de-interlace it it might clear up some of the issue, but I could just be talking out of my rear. What about a flicker filter?

Any suggestions from the pros would be great! Thanks again, and keep up the great work!

I have a few suggestions for After Effects:

• Try the Reduce Interlace Flicker filter.
• I'd avoid deinterlacing in AE: without third-party plugins, it isn't so hot.
• If these are VERTICAL stripes on the shirt, and if they REALLY bug you, you could duplicate the layer, add some horizontal blur only to the image, and roto the shirt... but for all the work it would take, it would REALLY have to bug you.
