Thread: Any way to convert progressive scan back to original interlaced?

    Default Any way to convert progressive scan back to original interlaced?

    Hello everyone,

    I hope someone can help me out with this.

    I recorded a TV show (broadcasted with the smooth real-looking quality, you know as from a video/TV-camera) on my DVD recorder. The recording is interlaced upper field first, and plays back with the exact quality as the original broadcast.

    However the last half hour of the show wasn´t recorded so I managed to get another copy of the show (in full) recorded from HDTV on a DVD disc. This copy is in progressive scan, and the picture does not at all look as the original broadcast. It has the more grainy "film-look", which I guess is because it is progressive scan rather than interlaced.

    So my question is, if there is any way to get the original quality back? Any way to convert the grainy progressive scan back to the real-looking sharp interlaced?

    Any help would be highly appreciated
    Best regards
