  • fields and HD Graphics

    I'm working on a 1080 50i project in Edius v4 and I'm preparing some 3d animated graphics in 3d studio max.
    Since my video footage is interlaced I render my animations to fields as well. Should I or I should render progressive and then leave the job to Edius...I did a few tests and I can’t spot any difference in Quality but I'm not so sure because I don't have HD output to a monitor.

    The main reason I'm asking is because rendering to fields requires much more time

    Any advise will be apreciated

    If your intended display device is interlaced, then render to interlaced. The motion will be smoother.

    Otherwise, render progressive.

    Generally speaking, progressive content will play on an interlaced display much better than interlaced content displayed on progressive displays.
