  • Does Edius include a deinterlacer ?

    I have some older interlaced DV that I would like to deinterlace. Is there a deinterlacer somewhere in Edius Broadcast or Procoder ?

    Anti-Flicker filter? I don't know, you could try that.

    Can you tell us what you're trying to do? Are you trying to make a clip "progressive" by removing one of the fields?

      You could also try the old movie filter - deselect all of the options other than deinterlace

      or

      try speed 100% with always deinterlace selected (I'm doubtful about that working though)

        It does work. I prefer the Old Movie-with-everything-off technique though, because you sometimes get nicer results with the 'Blend' type of deinterlacing.

        Tim Kolb had a nice recipe for deinterlacing with EDIUS. Let me see if I can dig it up..

          Ah here it is. It's more to do with trying to emulate the film look:

          Not bad, but one of the most specific traits of the "film look" (as much as I roll my eyes at how hung up we all are on this...) is the change in temporal resolution.

          In Canopus land, it's actually pretty easy, but I tend to shoot with wider luma ranges than most with DV, and I always use a black pro mist or diffusion filter as well.

          To use Canopus filters, I usually:

          1.) Apply "Old Movie" and shut off ALL the contamination (hair, dust, etc.) you can apply a SMALL amount of grain if you choose. Most importantly, check "frame blending" over on the right side.

          2.) Apply the motion blur to the clip, the settings will vary with the content, but this part is critical as one piece of the video/film puzzle isn't only the 30 fps vs. 24 fps...it's that each frame is exposed for different amounts of time.

          Film will typically show more motion blur as (for instance) an NTSC video shot without additional shutter speed applied is being exposed for 1/30th of a second (actually 1/60th if you count the fact that we do sense the fields), while a film shot would ideally (again, without shutter speed adjustment) cover 1/24th of a second. There is more motion captured during every frame at a truly slower frame rate. It's why simply deinterlacing or strobing frames of video so there are les temporal changes doesn't really strike us as "filmic." There may be less frames, but the amount of time they cover hasn't changed.

          You can also color correct to taste...most people sense that film is less saturated with color, though film's increased capacity to handle color contributes to this perception.

          The best thing about Canopus is that all this is done in real-time.

            Thanks for the help. Yes, my goal is to look progressive rather than interlaced. Some of this is sports material which may be looked at frame-by-frame. I keep forgetting that most people don't stop to look at individual frames, but if you do, the difference between interlaced and progressive is huge.

              is it possible to apply the filter to the entrie track instead than to every single clip?

                yes, create it on first clip, then select all other needed clips and then drag and drop from first clip info palette to any of the selected clips and it will apply to all selected clips

                remember shift+a and ctrl+a and shift+end and shift+home are handy selection shortcuts
