Re: How can I preserve interlacing, not deinterlace or stack.

That might be a little more complicated for Handbrake users. But, for the most part, for me, just adding bff=1 (even NTSC DVDs seems to be bff not just NTSC composite.) in the more options box in either the advanced or video section works for me. So, I can use basic setup and still encode interlaced...

Re: How can I preserve interlacing, not deinterlace or stack

Rodeo is correct about "no scaling". I had done an NTSC capture. I had captured a 16x9 on a 4x3 scale AKA "squeeze" format, to get more resolution, than letterboxed. HandBrake kept--well breaking with the bff=1 in the additional settings (or in the advanced settings). At first I ...

Re: How can I preserve interlacing, not deinterlace or stack

But, it's at least formated semi correctly; perhaps, I should have used semicolons?

Re: How can I preserve interlacing, not deinterlace or stack

Well, like I said previously, When in doubt test a small area of the video (especially with high horizontal motion). The last thing you want, is to have an encoding which took hours to encode to find the fields are reverse. Hey, professional broadcasters are still getting it wrong and with newer set...

Re: How can I preserve interlacing, not deinterlace or stack

I was thinking if you scaled the horizontal, it shouldn't affect interlacing as interlacing is vertical. So If I wanted to take a 16x9 720:480 and scaled it wider to be true 16x9 it shouldn't affect it. I guess in theory, each field (if already interlaced) would be scaled individually as technically...

Re: How can I preserve interlacing, not deinterlace or stack

I never showed anything like that, but in general Bottom is first. But, in doubt, I always encode a small portion of the file. if the bottom field first comes out with that jerky reverse field look, then you know the top field was first. What I would like to find is a filter which can auto sense whe...

Re: How can I preserve interlacing, not deinterlace or stack

That actually works and is so simple too! Thanks. It preserved interlaced video and even re interlaced those which were stacked. It even corrects field orders, if someone goof them up. Yes I tested it on all three. And all one has to do is append :tff=1 or :bff=1 at the end of the advanced x264 sett...

How can I preserve interlacing, not deinterlace or stack.

This is not a question on "howto" deinterlace. I have no issues with that. I would like to know, if there are any additional setting I can type in the additional setting box which will interlace either interlaced video, or reinterlace progressively stacked fields, so it can once again be s...
