Hello CC,

My fixed workflow for playing out video is at 1080i50. I overlay graphics using Black magic's atem television studio. These graphics need to be running at 25fps 'upper fields'. The issue I'm getting is, when my graphic (simple ticker) runs across the screen, the words a virtually impossible to read, due to the fact it's "interlaced" to suit 50i. Is there a way to fix this, or once its interlaced you can't get rid of the lines unless you de-interlace the graphic? (de-interlacing will cause non-smooth motion)

Thank you in advanced.

Information on setup;

Macbook pro

UltraStudio Mini Monitor

Final Output - HD TV (1080i50hz)

Graphic - 25i (Apple ProRes 422) AE.

You must be looking at the completed render, and you don't want to get rid of the interlacing. It will look fine on a video monitor. How about on a computer screen? Not so great.
