When should I de-interlace?
on Nov 28, 2008 at 2:37:01 am

I'm shooting PAL 50i SD footage in 16:9 with the XL2. Edit with FCPro 6. I've never had a problem before with deinterlacing and have never really thought about it before, but when should I deinterlace?

Tonight, I exported a project from FCPro to the desktop as a FCPro quicktime file, opened the file with quicktime player and went into Movie Properties. I ticked de-interlace and the image looked better. However, I was looking at that on an Apple 23" cinema display. Will there be a difference when I play it on a TV?

There is never (normally never) a good reason to de-interlace footage that is going on a DVD. TVs are either interlace or made to handle interlace.

I totally agree, but i want to add, software players should take care of de-interlacing when displaying on a computer screen.
(all good ones do)

well quicktime 7 is my player on the macpro. I had to tick deinterlace myself in movie properties in order to get it to look okay on the apple cinema display. Do I need to use something else, cos I thought quicktime was pretty much the standard. Also, I hear that by ticking deinterlace in movie properties, saving it and dropping the file into iDVD to burn will actually make no difference to the resulting image on the DVD?

Yeah- really deinterlacing is something you never ever *need* to do. Unless you're trying to make interlaced look like progressive. But if you want that there are way better film look plugins such as Magic Bullet and Nattress that do a far more appealing job than the built-in deinterlacing filter in most NLEs.
