    shooting progressive for interlaced TV

    Hi, I will soon begin editing a project shot with Canon 5D mark iii, for TV which requires interlaced master.

    What is best, link and transcode media in an Avid interlaced project? Will the material become truly interlaced ? Will panoramic shots look jerky?

    Or is it better to work in an Avid progressive project, export, then interlace with an encoder such as Adobe?

    I have version 8.4.5 on Yosemite 10.5.5

    Any experience with this?

    Thanks for any advice

    Constance

    Re: shooting progressive for interlaced TV

    50 p would be better than 25 p, Avid can interlace both with great results but 50 p will look better, you want to work in an interlaced project ama linking and apply the motion adapters directly on the ama linked clips.

    Re: shooting progressive for interlaced TV

    There is a difference between the technical format of the master and the signal inside it. Yes, 25p pans/motion will be less fluent than 50p or 50i, that's also sort of the idea (film look). I don't think any encoder is going to smooth things up, they will all just split every frame into two fields, so it's just technically interlaced.

    Belated thank you, Tomas!  This opens my eyes to 50p footage.  Our shoot is 25p.  I'm reassured that Avid will treat footage right when linked in a 50i project.  Geeked
