Re: "Ghosting" on downconverted text

Just chiming in here.. I recently ran across this issue. HDV 1080i using AJA Kona 2 to downconvert. So I selected selected the correct setting in FCP Video Playback settings (AJA Kona 1080i 29.97 8bit(1920x1080). Whammmo when monitoring the down-convert titles were all ghosting. Even detail in my program was ghosting. Called AJA, they as always were extremely helpful, we replaced the Kona2 card. Same thing.

I tried, FCP Video Playback settings (AJA Kona 1080p 29.97 8bit(1920x1080). And the ghosting went away. What is up with that! ? So my options are reduced to laying out a 1080p program (which is actually interlaced) or one that has ghosted images. I chose to lay out 1080p as it was the lesser of two evils.... hmmm this reminds me of another lesser of two evils dilemma to be hashed out on Nov. 4th.
