I have interlaced footage with some clips having plug-in effects applied to them. When I export, the footage looks interlaced (as it should) except for the parts where effects were applied (at least that's my theory). These parts with plug-in effects show no interlacing artifacts, and I wanted to see whether its possible that some de-interlacing was being done within the effects processing. The specific effects used were Sapphire glow effects, among others. Anybody know?
It seems unlikely, unless the effect is specifically designed to do so, such as FieldsKit from RE:Vision Effects.
