progressive vs. interlaced

I've heard conflicting views on recording using the XL1's "movie mode" vs. interlaced. Some say do not under any circumstances use progressive scanning some say absolutely it is the only way to go. My editor is of the former belief saying light well, shoot clean. My DP of the later, says never let your video interlace. What are your views?

Depends on the presentation media...TV or Computer monitor(HDTV). Use interlaced for TV and non-interlaced for computer monitor and HDTV. The interlacing artifacts on a computer monitor are just plain unacceptable in areas of fast motion. De-interlacing doesn't really fix the problem unless you do a temporal de-interlace. The only solution is to record in frame(pseudo-progressive) mode.

DVD, which uses the MPEG2 format, accepts either interlaced or non-interlaced video. Frame mode(on the XL1s) has slightly lower res than standard mode. It shouldn't really matter, but, I would go with the standard mode.

interlaced

I myself shoot frame mode (progressive)

I use this footage for web and DVD/kiosks..look great..

Id recomend shooting frame mode due to the better look.

It no longer "looks" like video when you shoot frame. If people
say not to use frame mode or progressive, Its their opinion.
maybe becuase its vaguely jumpy when you pan the camera. Your
audience isnt gonna degrade your footage becuase of that, especially
a client. Maybe its not "technically ideal" when transfering to film.
But if your just going to DVD then thats not a problem.

Why shoot video when you dont have to.
