I wonder if someone can shed some advice on this issue for me....
I am working in a 1080 50i project in Vegas Pro (upper field first) with 50i footage shot on a Canon C100 mkii. The footage appears ok. But if I crop and zoom in you can clearly see the awful field lines? It just distorts the image. I usually work progressive but this project needed to be interlaced. I've never had this issue with progressive.
Is this right with interlaced footage? I know it won't look the best on a PC/laptop LCD monitor as progressive but as bad as this?
If I de-interlace (blend/interpolate) in the project settings it solves it, but what if I want this project interlaced?
Below are images of the differences
Zoomed further still
As you can see, the further it's cropped and closer it becomes....the finer the lines become?
I appreciate any help.
