DV50 project - best de-interlacer for web ?
on Sep 4, 2014 at 3:00:29 pm

I have a project with four films, shot with the HPX500 in DV50 (they have some time on their neck...)

The client wish to use the films on the net, Powerpoint, etc.

So, what tool do you recommend, de-interlacing the films?

I have FCP 7 with Compressor and also Telestream Episode 5 and 6.

(in particular, the client (and I) think that the scrolling text in the end is jittery - but this is i fairly common problem, that I have not manage to resolve. I have tried Boris FX, Manifesto, etc. Still not looking good (although Manifesto does look better...)

Now, that's a sidetrack.

Thanks for your input!

You may not be able to fix those credits. Grab a DVD of the 2009 Star Trek movie, and watch on a DVD player -- the credit roll looks just God-Awful... and that's Hollywood.

Darn.... And yet hollywood is film, not video?

But I still tjink of a good way of making this DV50 project look the best possible on the web, computer screens, PP, etc

No go on that one?

Short of re-making the credit roll in progressive, I can't think of any really good fixes for the interlacing.

Re:Vision's Twixtor might do the trick, and a tryout version is available, I believe.

Hmmm.... How do I mix a progressive text roll clip in a DV50 timeline with good result?

Personally, I would forget FCP and use Motion. Your preference may be different.

Have you tried adding a very slight blur to the credits or zooming in a pinch?

actually, my preference for De-interlacing IS to do it in FCP, mainly because there is no single solution that will work for all types of material.

the last big job i did a total de-intelace on i used a combination of single field, and blended fields, depending on the shot.
and sometimes even WITHIN a shot (masking areas of high motion)
to make life simple i just exported a version of each for the whole film then flipped between them.


the best de-interlacer for FCP i've used is Graeme Nattres's SMart De-interlace.
not sure what that goes for these days, but as FCP is EOL you might pick up a bargain.

Bumping the topic - the credit roll was terminated, we use text stills instead. Works MUCH better.... :-)

But the main question still remains - being an all DV50 project, I really figure I would deliver the material de-interlaced, since the client will not use it on DVD. Just web/computers.

What's my best option here? I'd prefer free software, but for VERY good result, I might consider buying software/filter/plugin.

I've read that MPEG Streamclip could actually do a nice job - plus it will let me produce web-ready files (at least I think so). Or should I just do the de-interlacing (with ProRes422 as target) and then use for example Telestream Episode 5/6 to compress to web-ready files?

i stand by what i said earlier.

if you want to control the de-interlace, do it within your editing app,
otherwise you cant preview your results easily.

in FCP Nattress is the best.
