S16 Telecined to ProRes1080 interlaced by misstake
Posted 27 October 2009 - 08:32 PM
But by misstake the colorist used 1080i instead of 1080p.
I discovered this after finished editing. The digital special effects are very precisely adapted to the scanned film.
So I am left with two options;
Eighter rescan the film to 1080p. This is quite painful as the film does not have a frameline guide on its first exposed frames,
so I bet it will be impossible to get an accurate enough framing in telecine to avoid doing the effects over again.
Or I can deinterlace the files.
Now, I do not know enough about interlaced vs progressive.
Will deinterlaced 1080i have the exact same result as an actual 1080p from the telecine?
How would be the best way of getting these files progressive when I have FCP Studio?
Putting the 1080i files inside an 1080p project in FCP and simply put a deinterlace filter on it?
In addition to this, I had some problems with Prores HQ.
It produces some digital noise in the deep shadows.
So does anyone have a suggestion to another format?
I can not afford doing a DPX scan.
How would Uncompresses or 8 bit TIFFs do on shadow noise?
All suggestions very much apprettiated.

If the telecine was run at 29.97fps to transfer to 1080i at 59.94 then all you have to do is go into cinema tools and load the clip and do a conform to 23.98. After conform the clip will basically be 23.98Psf because the film frame is always acanned progressively by the telecine and then that progressive frame is sampled onto both interlaced fields. This is basically how Hdcam and others work i.e. the Psf concept.
You can then reload the clip into FCP and export it at 23.98P in a number of formats like Pro-ResHQ or 10Bit etc.

I will be doing a rescan in progressive tomorrow.
I mentioned that there was some noise in the deep shadows when using Prores.
Do you have any suggestions to other formats that would do better?
is TIFF fine compared to Prores?
