First off, sorry if this has already been answered. I've read so many posts and articles on interlacing it's clearly something other people have solved, but I just can't seem to get my head around it!
I have a Sony HDR-SR5 which records in 1440x1080i AVCHD. This plays back very nicely on my computer monitor using Sony's bundled software. Having reocrded some footage I now want to edit it. I've tried several including AVS, PowerDirector, Premiere Elements and Vegas. These are all great editors.
I would like to burn the video I'm editing to Blue Ray for play back on HD devices (When I finally get one!). I'd also like to burn it to standard DVD for playback on regular DVD players and on PC. I'd also like to be able to view the files on PC without having burnt them to DVD. However, no matter which option I choose when it comes to exporting, the output produced by PD, PE and Vegas, when played back on my PC, all have the interlace 'combing' problem (The jagged / fuzzy lines along the edge where there is motion).
The AVS software has an option to export as 1080p which does not have the combing effect. However, I can't believe that Cyberlink's, Premiere's and Sony's editors cannot export footage that is viewable on a computer, so am certain I've missed something.
If anyone out that can offer some advice on this, I'd be very, very, thankful (And it might just stop my head exploding!).
Thanks very much for reading,
