Deinterlace with good quality

I have tried out many things to deinterlace my footage. Adobe Premiere makes the image blurry as does any other program ive used. I always liked the way that VirtualDub deinterlaced but the result is always blurry or has a loss of quality easily noticeable. Does anyone have any suggestions or programs I could use to get good quality deinterlacing? Your response if appreciated.

Premiere is perhaps the worst deinterlacer I have seen. Vegas seems to do a better job from the results I have seen others get. There are many, many ways to deinterlace in VirtualDub, with various trade-offs. Some look better or worse for certain types of footage.

If you want to take a step up, there is DVFilm Maker for around $150, that will do 60i to 30p or 24p, and won't result in blurry pictures. Or, the Magic Bullet Suite for more that may give you the sharpest stills, if that's what you are after. There are some head to head tests out there that included Apple Compressor, if you are on the Mac platform. That's potentially an option.

According to Premier's help file, it discards a field and interpolates. This looks pretty appalling in my opinion. Twixtor's deinterlacing/slowmo in After Effects is stunning. DVfilm's price though is pretty hard to argue with. Check this review out:

The people who make Twixtor [re vision effects] make a $79 plug in called fields kit - which kicks a** in the de-interlacing stakes. buy it. is good.
