Shooting on 16mm or 24p digital, I have been forced to transfer to NTSC (at 29.97fps) for DVD and editing. This causes interlacing of frames which I HATE. How do I avoid this. Why do major features not have this issue with NTSC?

Thanks!

You can remove any pulldown added by the telecine (or added by a 24P camera that records to 60i) in some editing software (like FCP) and cut in a true 24-frame environment.

You can then put the edited 24P/480 master on a DVD without converting it to 60i NTSC; the DVD player software adds the pulldown for 60i display but if it's displayed on a progressive-scan monitor, there is no interlacing/pulldown needed.

Most movies on DVD are stored as 24P; you often notice that the behind-the-scenes extras are 60i though and the same movie clips now shown in the documentary in the supplementals now have interlaced-scan artifacts.

Hi,

...and of course when you watch a feature film from a DVD onto an NTSC TV, it certainly does have that same issue.
