Help with Understanding Progressive...

Hello,

I have not jumped to HD shooting yet, but I am intrigued by the new Sony camera.

My question is about shooting progressive and making it look good.

So often I see footage broadcast that I can spot as "progressive" because it just looks jittery.

Tonight my wife even asked about a camera being used during the show "Inside the Actors Studio".

The host's camera looked interlaced or smooth, the guest's camera looked progressive or jittery.

It just looked like the framerate could not keep up with simple motion.

Can somebody tell me if there is a good or better way to display progressive shooting over an interlaced tv and have it look smooth?

Thanks

Thanks, but I still am wondering about a progressive workflow.

Outside of a "film look", how does one shoot and distribute progressive shot material and have it look as smooth as interlaced material with regards to motion?

When I watch DVD movies, they do not show this jitter on simple movements and it was shot in 24p.

Any ideas?

Thanks

Good article, Herman! I especially liked two things he said:
_____________________________________
"We probably know less about how we actually perceive motion pictures than we think we do."
_____________________________________
"Digital 60 frames per second capture and display for the cinema and 60fps transmission is likely in the next decade and the audiences of the future will settle down to a new industry standard that will last until the next century.

This audience of the future may find the judder of 24fps movies made in the 20th century hard to bear."
