View Full Version : DV Deinterlanceing issue

10 October 2005, 12:25 PM
Hey guys,
I'm captured some footage from my Camcorder in DV format, now i need to deinterlance it. Premire dosent seem to do the job properly. The footage looks too unsmooth and motionblur seem to disapear.
My question is, is there any other way or mathod to deinterlance DV video that gives better quality and looks smooth? I would also like to know if 25i video can be turned into 24p.

Thanx for your help in advance

Hi there.
Have you tried Virtual Dub? It's free. Just open the avi, and run the deinterlace filter.

25i? Do you mean 50i i.e. interlaced Pal capture? 50i to 24p should be possible; 50i -> Deinterlace -> 25p -> drop one frame -> 24p?

Hope that's right; I'm very very new to working with dv footage.

I would use after effects or combustion. Combustion's deinterlacer though I find to be a little better.

In after effects use your footage intrepreter to change the frame rate.

which will look like film

more accurately, it will move at the same speed as film.

Reel Smarts Smart De-Interlacer is wonderful if you want an AE plugin that can go right into Premiere.

I've tried Shake and Combustion, both of which did a good job on the footage for our film, but I was very surprised after doing a couple of tests to find that Final Cut Pro did a better job than either of them.

This might be a stupid question, but will you be printing it on film? Probably you are, but if not, then I'd use what ever was the appropriate frame rate for the end product.

The lame method for de-interlacing: if it's a short clip, I'd render it out as individual frames and then I'd run them through Photoshop as a batch action (y'know, when you make and action and then you go to file > automate > batch and so on).
