What is the final output medium you plan to use - DVD, tape, online?
i intend to take my final output on dv tape and also on DVD. in short the final resulting output will be played on 25fps.
There is absolutely no benefit in using anything at 60fps if you're output medium runs at PAL 25fps.
You have two options:
or 25fps interlaced.
The interlaced render will effectively give you 50 "moments in time" rather than 25, (25 x 2 fields = 50 fields per second) meaning that animations will appear smoother when displayed on interlaced monitors like TVs.
But many people prefer the aesthetic look of non-interlaced images because they look more like film, which typically runs at 24fps.
The choice is ultimately yours to make, but technically speaking 25fps interlaced is the best possible temporal rate for PAL mediums like tape and DVD.
Motion blur can go a long way toward making your animation look more natural and less mechanical, particularly at lower frame rates.
The lower the frame rate the more movement will strobe or jitter. 24 and 25 fps are particularly problematic. If you really want smooth then render interlaced and look at the output on a PAL interlaced monitor. It's just not going to look as smooth as it does at 60FPS. As Aaron said, about the only thing you can do is disguise the jitters with some blur.
