What's the verdict on Progressive Scan from Interlaced Video

    I'm backing up my Laserdiscs (Canopus: Capture) and wondering if I should
    try to create Progressive Scan DVDs rather than Interlaced. My TV has the
    ability to display anamorphic, Progressive Scan DVDs.

    I'm backing up my Laserdiscs (Canopus: Capture) and wondering if I should
    At the risk of sounding flippant: Try it progressive, interlaced, anamorphic,
    16:9...whatever you can create. Then burn on DVD/RWs and choose the
    best-looking technique. IAW: The "best", "correct", way is the way that looks

    Yeah, but I have read lots of mixed opinion about even trying to make
    progressive out of interlaced video. This is not film mode source, its 29.97
    FPS video being captured over Firewire. Surely, there must be a pecking
    order of the best tools for de-interlacing and then creating PS scan MPEG-2.

  4. I'd vote that the DVD player would do the best at converting from interlace to
    progressive. As said, do some testing and see what looks best. Then let us
    know. ;-)

    I agree wiuth the test idea. I had conflicting opinions on soem settings, so
    I took a 2 minute clip that I new what it looked like form my DV cam to the
    TV, and encoded many mpg versions, authored them and looked at them. I could
    see diffreences in smoothness and quality, hence I ended uo with my really
    good template. YIu should do the same for your Progressive issue

    I thought that the best solution would be to De-Interlace and then Sharpen,
    then create Progressive Scan MPEG-2 file. Virtual Dub and AviSynth seem to
    have filters and commands that handle this. Of course, experimentation is
    what I always do. I was just looking for opinion on which filters to use.
    Bob and Weave seems to be the one that gest the most hype.
