If anyone here can point me in the right direction I'd be most grateful.
We are fast heading towards picture lock on a documentary feature, and have run into a number of issues to do with frame tearing in some of the interlaced footage. The original footage was shot on many formats and brought into a 24P project in Avid. After reading everything on Creative Cow about FieldsKit http://library.creativecow.net/articles/solorio_marco/twixtor_review.php I suggested this may be the way to deal with the issues. But when I'm trying to deinterlace the footage it mostly seems to get worse, or looks like the frames are blending, although some of the tearing seems to be better. I feel I'm just not managing the workflow right, as the examples in the review showed significant improvements to the footage, and this has not been my experience yet. We are dealing with the tearing in Final Cut Pro, as there's no Fields Kit for Avid, and then passing it on for the Avid. We bought Twixtor for the Avids too.
Maybe you have a 3:2 pulldown issue?
