De-interlace techniques RE: Virtual Dub

Hey folks,
I have read a million way for de-interlacing and for whatever reason I am not able to re-create the process with Virtual dub. I hear VD is a good software and I am sure if I had the correct method it would be fine.

What methods are you using and do you have a good tutorial that I can follow that is very simple?

I have read that Bob (Progressive scan) + Intelligent Adaptive Hybrid is the best method. But I can not seem to do this? any direction along this path or a completely better idea are all welcomed.

Thanks!!

you just need to apply a deinterlace filter, many available for VD, some free, some not.

I tried one called smooth something...and I got a bunch of jittery footage. I am on a different PC or I could get the correct name.

I tend to get excellent results with my NLE's deinterlacing abilities (strange as that may seem), so I don't use this plugin terribly often, but Donald Graft's site has the one filter you'll hear referenced for high quality deinterlacing more than any other.

I don't want to directly link the file, in case it moves or new versions are released, so you'll have to grab it from http://neuron2.net/smart/smart.html. Just unzip the .vdf file to your VirtualDub\plugins directory, and "Smart Deinterlacer" will become available under Video->Filters, just like all of the others.

It works very well, and though I have encountered minor artifacts when playing around with some of the options, I'm quite certain it's my lack of experience with the software. That and, of course, the fact that different settings work better for some clips and worse for others. You'll have to read the documentation and experiment to figure out what works best, but even with the defaults it produces very good progressive video.
