Hey there! I'm having some issues with (or trouble understanding) Twixtor when I am attempting to change an SD 29.97 interlaced clip to a 59.94 1080 interlaced clip in Avid. If I follow the tutorial video and do the math, I should be inputting a speed of 50% on Twixtor, but this just makes the footage slower and doesn't improve the look at all. Is there a different procedure I should be following for this process? I can't seem to find any information on this.
We received an email yesterday asking this same exact question. Do you perhaps work with that person we helped out yesterday?
Heres' what I answered to that person:
When working with 59.94i (newer term, designated 59.94 samples per second, interlaced), you may know that interlaced footage used to be designated 29.97i (29.97 frames per second, with interlacing). So in fact, with what you want to do (introduce an in-between field where one did not previously exist), then you do indeed need to use both TimeWarp and Twixtor at 100%. This is because we assume the old method of designating frames per second, 29.97i/29.97p = 100%
