That's right! I've delved into the realm of video editing, mastered the silky-smooth art of "wow that looks great..how did I do that?", wrestled with Premiere Pro, After Effects, Virtual Dub and Fraps. Now for the question I should have asked from the beginning.
My films look like crapola..well very nicely edited crapola.
Should I deinterlace my raw footage, my finished film, or both?
One note to add: I'm not taking footage from RL, Cam corder or DVD. I get all of my footage from video games (yes I'm a gamer nerd :P ) and pull the video using 'Fraps'. Will this make a difference if I deinterlace it vs. raw footage from a cam corder.
I understand the basics of interlacing/deinterlacing but I still haven't found any good info on the effects of digitally captured video over a computer. I'm using VirtualDub to deinterlace with the "deinterlace-smooth" plugin.
Please grant me your wisdom oh Wise and Bright-Eyed Ones.
If I fail, the film industry writes me off as another statistic. If I succeed, they pay me a million bucks to fly out to Hollywood and fart.
