Can DVFilm Maker smooth out MPEG Artifacts?

Hi,

Does anyone know if processing 1080 60i HDV footage into 24P with DVFilm Maker would smooth-out any potential MPEG artifacts?

Since "artifact" can mean almost anything to people can I ask you what specifically do you mean, is it any of the following:

1. interlacing (not an artifact)
2. 4:2:0 color sampling issues
3. moire or dot crawl problems
4. DCT (Jpeg-like) compression problems
5. motion compensation problems

Maker can address 1-3 depending on how you use it but 4 and 5 are not treated in any way.

Also as general advice before you decide that artifacts are a problem be sure to show the footage to a non-filmmaker in real-time and see if they notice it.
