Before you tell me to search for de-interlace in the forums I already have and im still a bit confused. Im not sure how complicated my problem is but ill give as much information of my situation as possible so you can help.
I have used Powerproducer Gold 2 to capture some old home videos from VHS. The videos were taken with a video camera when I was living in Canada in the late 80's (NTSC i think?). I captured the video through my Geforce FX5600's composite TV-in port, recording in HQ mode, LPCM audio, and chose South Africa (Pal-I) as the destination the video will be played. That is because I know live in South Africa.
Anyway, the video comes out very clear on my computer, no horizontal lines when viewing, which is fine. But when I use powerdvd to burn the video files onto a DVD for use in TV DVD player, the video has quite bad horizontal lines with movement and crystal quality otherwise. I am quite confused because the guides and posts I have read all seem to say the lines are caused because you are playing an interlaced video on a non-interlaced monitor and that the problem will go away when you watch the video on TV.
My problem is the reverse, the video looks good on my pc but has lines on TV. What is happening, has powerproducer deinterlaced the video when I recorded it and that has caused the lines when played through TV? How can I fix this, must I record the video again? I also have virtualdub installed but I cant open the files I recorded to PC, i think i need to install a DV codec.
I know this topic comes up a lot but some help would be much appreciated! Please dont tell me to search forums! Please Please!
