The main plugin for FieldsKit is it's deinterlacer. Within all supported apps (After Effects, Premiere Pro, Final Cut Pro, combustion and Digital Fusion) it can:
  • convert 60i to 30p
  • convert 60i to 30p, deinterlacing every field so 60i becomes 30p, but twice as long (6 seconds of interlaced footage becomes 12 seconds of deinterlaced footage).

Within AE and combustion FieldsKit's deinterlace can
  • convert 60i to 30p by deinterlacing every field. Instead of making it 2x as long in duration we are able to double the frame rate.

FieldsKit also has some pulldown removal/addition features in one of its plugins.

A demo version is available (make sure to read the short manual that is installed) in the "Downloads" section for FieldsKit on our website: http://www.revisionfx.com

Thanks for the info. I also asked about 30i - because I think my video camera may only shoot as 30i. It's just a consumer Canon Optura 60.

So how does it fare with converting 30i to 30p.

Thanks.

You get the most benefits on camera lock-off shots using the Adaptive Motion Masking feature (where it deinterlaces only where there is motion). As well it has decent handling of diagonal staircasing that can happen with straight scanline blending.

Thanks, Pierre. I assume that's a "sort of yes." Right?

I understand that no solution (other than filming progressive) is perfect, but I want the best solution possible.

Thanks.

And to answer your question: you CAN turn 30i into 30p if you are using AE or combustion. Use the 2xfps mode of FieldsKit.
