Deinterlacing an old project with mix of live action and heavy graphics
on Feb 26, 2016 at 9:18:41 pm

Hello comrades. I need to revisit an old project and update it for a festival it is to be included in. It was originally shot at 1080i (interlaced). It has a lot of graphics in it (hand drawn illustrations and watercolors). I have all the original files and sequences. My question is should I just deinterlace the live action video or the graphics too? Obviously it would be quicker if I could deinterlace the whole thing at the same time but I don't want to degrade the graphic images. So is there a benefit to just deinterlacing the live action video? The video files are standard ProRes 422. I use RE:Vision FK Deinterlacer (set to "Best Three Neighbors") for the deinterlacing.

Many thanks.

If everything is interlaced, and the deliverable needs to be Progressive, then you need to deinterlace everything.

No - as I mentioned it's only the live action video that is currently interlaced and not the graphics and animation. It's a mix of interlaced and non-interlaced.

I think my approach is going to be to deinterlace the live action video using RE:Vision's Fields Kit Deinterlacer then bring that footage into a 30p sequence along with the graphics and animation.
