I'd be curious to see what the results are after you matched Jerry Wise's settings. He did exactly what I would have done.

I want to underscore something Jerry said because he's exactly right. Don't poo-poo shooting in interlaced. Initially, it bothered me to no end to be forced into shooting 1080i just because the station I was working for aired in 1080i, but the fact is it's quite beautiful when done correctly. True, your graphics look ratty when stilled, but who watches graphics stilled on TV for very long other than editors? Plus, as Jerry said, the motion video looks very nice. And you have a pixel for every frame of a TV displaying in least vertically.

I am curious why you're taking your 59.97i footage down to 29.97i? You are tossing half of your data away at that point.
