In what way do you see a difference? AFAIK both are equally BAD, BAD, BAD. De-interlacing in PP only halves your vertical resolution. Never use it.
Thanks for your reply!
The difference is seen with more artifacts/flickering. I did some more searching a found out that the "always deinterlace" option in the field options menu uses upper field first, so maybe that makes the difference?
I am also slowly starting to realize that premiere really has issues with deinterlacing like you said. Is there any good free apps that I could do the job with? How would the workflow go with those? Export from premiere as interlaced with a losless codec and import that in to a third party software right?
VirtualDub with the Smart Deinterlacer plug-in is good and fast and free.
There are other VirtualDub workflows that involve AviSynth scripting, but they have the potential to do an even better job, at the expense of very long render times.
I would first ask why you want to deinterlace. There may be a legitimate reason, but many who come here asking about it really shouldn't do it.
Thanks for the tip Jeff!
The name VirtualDub certainly seems to pop out in many different occasions, so maybe I have to finally learn to use it! It's just the interface that hasn't gotten me too excited, but maybe it's just a matter of getting familiar with it. :)
Jim, I'm deinterlacing because I want to watch the movie on a computer monitor.
Fair enough. That's one of the few good reasons to do it.

There is also the FieldsKit deinterlacer for Premiere and AE (which is not free and not fast, but seems to do a good job.)
[are we trading places here, Jeff,or what? :)]
Sometimes you scare me, Dan. :)
There are three of you that really scare me...you all need to go on a conference together. (somewhere nice of course)
I am going to come and make a documentary.
Hey Dan or Jeff, 've been waiting for your response for some time now
Just have 2 questions. 1) Would you say after effects does a dicent job on dienterlacing? 2)Do you guys have a tutorial on how to use avsynth and Virtual Dub. I get stuck in the middle of it going by reading only....
> Would you say after effects does a dicent job on dienterlacing
Not at all -- unless you have the FieldsKit deinterlacer.
As for AviSynth and Virtual tutorials: Go to http://avisynth.org and http://virtualdub.org
You can also Google things like "AviSynth tutorials". You'll find lots of info.
Wondering if cs4 will do a better job on this issue...
Has anybody tested it out?
