XHA1s Deinterlace 60i FCP/Compressor Workflow

Was hunting around looking for deinterlace workflow solutions others have been using for their 60i footage.

Currently I import my XHA1s 60i footage into FCP as Apple Pro Res 422-60i. After editing is complete I export the final project as a "quicktime movie" with "current settings". Then send that to Compressor with the following deinterlace settings:

Frame Controls: On
Resize Filter: Best
Output Fields: Progressive
Deinterlace: Best (Motion Compensated)
Rate Conversion: Best (High Qual Motion Compensated)

I found this takes about 40-60 minutes to process each 1 minute of HD video on a QuadCore Mac Pro. End result is pretty good though.

What do others recommend or use when deinterlacing 60i? Would love to know! Thanks..

Hi Sylus,

Is this for SD DVD's? If so try a test with a short snippet of your finished product with the Frame Controls off and instead turn on Deinterlace in the legacy filters tab. Set it to Blur. Its a much faster render. This works great when going from SD interlaced footage to an SD DVD, but I haven't needed to do it with HD footage as I shoot progressive with the A1.

Mainly I would be taking HD 60i footage and deinterlace for the web, but would be good to know a similar work flow for SD DVD as well. I didn't know about that filter in Compressor. Ill have to give that a shot and see how it comes out. Thanks a lot Joel!
