How to best convert 1080i 59.94 to 1080p 23.98?

Hi Folks,

What's the best way to convert 1080i 59.94 to 1080p 23.98? Conversions in avid are not good. Is the terranex a solution? I can't tell from their conversion chart if it supports it.

I'd love to hear what people here think. Thanks!

David

Terranex is OK, but really, nothing is all that good at it. The best I've seen is After Effects with a bit of tweaking. Don't know the secret sauce there..but it was good. Any other converter will just remove the 6 frames and stuttering will occur. AE will blend them better...so some blending mode, or maybe my AE artist had Twixtor or something. I'll ask.

Oh...here's a method I found there on the Cow:

I still prefer hardware based conversion over software for overall quality especially when there is interlace to progressive, frame rate conversion, etc.

Next thing I would look at is how much do you have to transfer? If just program, then software and such may very do the trick.If converting lot lots of selects, then the real time hardware will be appreciated.

Is this 1080i interlaced from a video source, or 24fps film content that was transferred to video with added 3:2 cadence? If the latter, you can do a near perfect conversion in Avid by reconstructing the cadence back to a true 24fps (23.976) sequence using the Motion adapters. Depending on how broken the cadence is, you would potentially have to do this shot-by-shot.

I think we're just going to take the final 60 second spot and convert that, we're not going to convert anything else.
