I'm importing some HDV .avi footage (using cineform codec)into max, I am about 99% sure this question also applies to standard DV avi files.
The video footage was shot interlaced, and will be finalised as DVD and HDV (both interlaced). The shots where composited in After Effects interlaced, and rendered out the same way. When importing the files into max, should they still be interlaced ? Also, how do I render out after that ? Do I Keep it interlaced ?
I've heard its bad to convert interlaced footage to progressive scan and back again as this causes problems with motion.
