I understand that one of the best ways to deinterlace DV footage on a PC after exporting from Premiere Pro is to use avisynth.
I'm on a Mac and so I'm wondering what would be an equivilent method, or software? (b/c the Premiere Pro for mac does not export to avi.)
Is there an alternative, or do you recommend that I find a third party software to convert my quicktime .mov to an avi first, and then use avisyinth?
When you export through Premiere Pro, there are options to go to 'progressive' frames which is equivalent to de-interlacing. so, if your source footage is interlaced, choose Progressive on your output and it should do the trick for you.
Hope this helps,
