Question Re: Transitions

ok, i totally posted this on the wrong board. hopefully, this is the right place to ask this. i'm interested in doing lots of fades, such as you often saw in montage sequences from movies in the 40's, or as coppola did in "tucker: a man and his dream". anyway, i've been told this looks REALLY bad on digital video, for some reason.

is this true? does it only look bad interlaced, but OK on progressive? let's say i want to cross-fade a clip at full speed with a clip at half speed, or an interlaced clip with a progressive scan clip. i'm not talking straight cross-fades, but rather layer three or more moving images on top of each other.

i'm using premiere pro 1.5, but unless i'm doing something wrong, the de-interlace feature looks awful, particularly if the speed of the clip has been altered.

not a dumb question

there is only one dumb question ("is that gun REALLY loaded??" just assume it is..)...
but your question is a very specific one and requires some experience in that area....
my best suggestion would be to keep experimenting till you find the perfect cocktail of effects/transition to get what you want....
de-interlacing causes you to lose quality because the computer is trying to blend the two frames together or duplicating one of the fields (<--very very basic conceptual answer)
does it look bad to you, or to others?

Why not simply try rendering it and watching it on a DVD?
