    I have found TONS of tools that try to automatically inverse telecine
    video. They all try to guess what the pattern is and process from

    They never guess perfectly and I KNOW the pattern. The video is
    perfectly arranged in 3 full frames with 2 interlaced frames. There
    are no dropped frames and the pattern is confirmed consistent
    throughout the file.

    I have many AVIs where the FFFIIFFFIIFFFIIFFFII...etc pattern is

    What program is best for accepting an input pattern to keep full
    frames, split interlaced frames into fields and delete "pulldown"
    fields and combine the remaining fields to make the last frame?

    Hello - see the guide here, it gives info on using

    Also, if you're doing avi > mpg, tmpgenc inverse telecine
    works quite well.

  3. Actually, TMPGenc will work fine for an avi -> avi also. Just do your
    manual inverse Telecine in TMPGenc, save the project file and open the
    project file as a fake avi using something like VFAPIConv.

    I have yet to see a program do even a remotelty good job with an
    automatic Inverse Telecine. Best I have come across is doing it all
    manually with TMPGenc.

    Thanks for that info. I've never used the
    tmpgenc project file that way.

    What program is best for accepting an input pattern to keep full
    VirtualDub does this very well. It has both manual and automatic inverse telecine.

    Apple's Cinema Tools also does manual inverse telecine.
