interlaced to progressive

Is it possible to get good progressive at post from an interlaced footage? Equal to a native progressive shooting?

Or to go to 24p or 25p from 60i/50i isn't it the same that shooting progressive? What can we count? The results will be below? Not so progressive or film-like?

Will it imply resolution losses like vertical one, for instance?

What is the best editing solution to achieve the best progressive workflow with film-look from an interlaced stream? What is the best affordable software provider?

Acceptable to 35mm film-out?

NO not equal

"Or to go to 24p or 25p from 60i/50i isn't it the same that shooting progressive? What can we count? The results will be below? Not so progressive or film-like?"

it will be progressive but you loose a little in the 60i to 24p conversion

"Will it imply resolution losses like vertical one, for instance?"

there is always resolution lost .. less or more depends on method used to create the progressive

"What is the best editing solution to achieve the best progressive workflow with film-look from an interlaced stream? What is the best affordable software provider?"

most tape to film transfer houses have their own software/hardware methods... for home use a few years ago there was a test done on different ways .. i believe using 2 of "revisions" plug ins came out the best.

"Acceptable to 35mm film-out?"

Yes !! until the panasonic dvx 100 came out all video had to be 60i to 24p converted .. orginal 4:2:2 media has excellent results .. DVX has very good results ,, DV good .... but it all is dependent on how it's lit, exposed etc

You don't mention what computer platform you use. DVfilm Maker runs under both Windows and MacOSX: http://www.dvfilm.com/maker/

The same company also does 35mm transfers: http://www.dvfilm.com/faq.htm

On the Mac you might take a look at Graeme Nattress' Film Effects:

http://www.nattress.com/filmEffects.htm

You can download free trials of both these packages and see what you thing for yourself.

How much?

Will it be relevant? Where?

Only vertical resolution losses?

What's the better method?

I must need to buy a new computer and I will go where this operation will be better! Any suggestion, please?

Will it be better to go to PC where I can have the DVfilm Maker?

Or Graeme Nattress' Film Effects has better results?

My suggestion is to post this question on the Canopus forum. You will need to register and go to the Edius forum to get to the right audience for your question. There are people there working with HDV and HD professionally who may be able to answer your question.

Edius, and ProCoderExpress that is bundled with it, can do the conversion to and from HDV Type 1 and 2 and HD formats. As to whether it will do it to a 35mm film out standard, I have no idea.

Just FYI, I notice that Coplan's review didn't include Magic Bullet: http://www.redgiantsoftware.com/magbulsuit.html

MB is very, very good ... certainly better than Procoder which I use .... but also very slow and probably not what you would call "affordable" ($800).
