Removing interlaced look from 50fps material to use on 25fps project
on Dec 19, 2011 at 4:30:25 pm

This is my problem:

A cameraman accidentally had his Panasonic P2-memorycard camera set on 50fps while he shot a days worth of documentary footage.


He was supposed to shoot 25fps and now the footage ofcourse looks interlaced and the shutter speed is very high, when placed in a 25fps timeline. The shutter speed is not an issue, but the interlaced look is because I need to use this footage along with other 25fps material with a normal 1/60 shutter.

Question:

Does anyone know a way to somehow perhaps deinterlace this material or remove artificially every other frame from the footage so that I could get rid of the interlaced look. I don't mind the high shutter because it's mostly people dancing. I've been experimenting a bit, but haven't gotten satisfactory results yet.

Too Much Too Soon filters - Smart Deinterlace. The filters are free but you can donate to the developer.

OOOPS, Meant to say Blend Fields. Although Smart Deinterlace might be worth a look as well

Unless this cameraman screwed up royally and shot in standard-definition, the footage should all be progressive-scan video. You can run it through Compressor to get it to 25fps. Turn on the frame controls.
