Premiere simply throws out one field, so you are losing half the vertical resolution.
For Internet use, I find the program V2F very workable. For computer playback, the best files I've ever seen use the Divx encoder.
Thanks I was afraid of that ouch!!!
Do you find that V2F works better than Flash? I think Flash handles the de-interlace internally-possibly with the same terrible effects but it seems to look the best.
CS3 does not support divx does it?
I have a project upcoming and I want this production to look the best but I don't have HVX 200 either or even the DVX 100B Maybe I should consider renting one to get the best non-interlaced viewing. Your thoughts??
Thanks for providing me your input!!
I don't have Flash, so I can't compare.
I don't know if CS3 exports to Divx. For about $40, though, you can get the Divx Pro Encoder. Maybe try that.
For proper deinterlacing, Dan Isaacs has formulated a very workable free solution, the specifics of which I'm in the process of writing up.
Please share as I would love to see this.
In fact, Premiere interpolates the fields and then throws one away. This means that both fields are compared and one adjusted before the other is thrown away. May not be the best method but it beats many.
And the results are better than not de-interlacing at all in your circumstance.
Are you sure about that Redgum? I thought the manual stated that a field is simply discarded, no interpolation.
I really look forward to seeing your write-up of Dan Isaac's method. Judging by the numerous posts, I don't envy you the job.
Are you going to try to compare that method of deinterlacing with others? For instance, I got Cineform's Aspect HD a while back and noticed that I could deinterlace the HDV footage on capture using their module.
Of course, there is a big cost factor, and I could try it myself, but I would really value your thoughts about this, based on your experience.
Thanks in advance.
The write up is some work. I'll admit.
For now, only NTSC DV is being considered. HDV is not. (One step at a time.)
The method being written up uses only free tools, so nothing you have to buy will be required to get the job done.
As extensive comparisons have already been done throughout the three forum posts, what is being offered in the write up are the conclusions of that testing, meaning the specific process and settings to get what we feel are the best results. (No need to make users go through all that themselves.)
Wow -- I did a few tests last night and Premiere really does just discard/duplicate fields when deinterlaced. Any nonsense about "interpolation" is simply not true -- unless they mean "Nearest Neighbor Interpolation", which is to say, no interpolation at all :)
Even if it did "interpolate", it would likely be the same as Photoshop's linear interpolation -- which is not all that much better than simply duplicating the fields anyway. Junk.
Let's hope that some mystery visitors from Adobe have taken note and introduce a much improved deinterlacing scheme in CS4. It is about time to get rid of these primitive approaches, dating back to the beginning of video editing or at least from last century.
Export it as is, then deinterlace it in avisynth or virtualdub. or you can buy the Alparysoft Deinterlace filter, which ive found to be good for highspeed scenes.
