BCC Deinterlace Filter with FCP 7
by John Farrell on Nov 8, 2011 at 3:24:12 am
I'm probably overlooking something really obvious, but I can't figure out why the BCC Deinterlace filter doesn't seem to be working. I have a short section of DV NTSC interlaced video. Brought it into my timelime. Added the Boris filter 'Only deinterlace'. Looks like it works when viewing in the source window, and the filter is clearly loaded.
But when I render and export as a reference file or 'make movie self contained', it just looks like interlaced footage, combing artifacts and all.

I found the issue--and yeah, it should've been obvious. Peter Macauley answered this a few years back: "Apparently the problem was with the way your FCP sequence was set up and not with the filter. The BCC Deinterlace filter requires that the FCP sequence field dominance be set to *none* in order for it to see both fields, so if you can set the field dominance of the sequence containing the clip that you wish to filter with the BCC Deinterlace to none you should see the result that you were expecting."
