I have an odd question. I still create standard definition DVDs for my clients every now and then but when I do, I still like to keep in mind the good old CRT TV interlaced formats during the design phase. I do this perhaps out of habit because I lived thorough many of those CRT years. And also because I believe that someone out there could still have an old CRT TV perhaps in an office or classroom (where my DVDs are likely to be viewed).
Having said that, when I design DVD menus, as many of you know, there are a few things that will not look good on an interlaced CRT. For example white smallish text will buzz like crazy.
Unfortunately my last old CRT TV died and I now have to drive over to a friends house and borrow his old TV to check every time I make a change. I'm planning on getting a replacement but until then, is there perhaps a Photoshop plugin or app that can simulate an interlaced TV and what the menus would look like so I can preview directly on my Mac? This would be quite useful even after I get the replacement TV since I won't have to necessarily burn a DVD for every test/change.
