And would you say deinterlacing is required?

I second the deinterlacing comment. I've been having "film look" <shudder> issues and deinterlacing is probably one of the biggest first steps you can make

And what about the loss in resolution and the loss in contrast from the deinterlacing?

Why are you suffering loss of contrast from a de-interlace? A de-interlacer should not alter the colour or the tonal range of an image - if it is, then it's broken an you need to find a compatent de-interlacer!

Also, a good de-interlacer should only loose you some resolution on areas of the screen that move - areas that are not moving should retain full resolution. It will be very hard for you to see any resolution losses in the moving areas unless you pause the tape.

Also, for a film look, de-interlace will only work if you're in PAL where film is transferred to video on a frame matching basis. For NTSC you have to get to 24 frames from your 60i somehow - wether the camera does it (DVX-1000) or you do it in software. De-interlace is part of the software 24p process, but not the entire part. Just de-interlacing will give you 30p which looks somewhat, but not entirely like film motion.

What would be some good deinterlacers that you could recommend?

I can recommend my own if you're an FCP user, along with Matt's Too Much Too Soon, and Joe's FCP plugins. All work well, are fast and of high quality.

For cross-platform solutions:

DV film maker is quite fast, but quite expensive for a one trick pony.

Fields Kit seems very good,

Magic Bullet is very, very expensive for what it does,

I've seen quite a few reviews on de-interlacers on other threads on this forum which will be able to give you much more PC info than I can.

I can only help you because I've written a number of de-interlacers using all kinds of algorithms, hence know how they work and what they do.

Aaron, what did you think of my color correction job on my
episode of Lady X? It looked quite nice on my TV set here at
home.

You can download a higher resolution SVCD (mpeg2) version
(which is PAL! 480x576 at 25 fps) from here (89 MB)

So 75% of this thread is about deinterlacing.

Has anyone ever come across a comparison of the same scene recored in film then DV, with shots/clips available - not just one format?
