Hello there,

just wanted to get your thoughts on shooting for tv with progressive scan. (No transfer to film.)

Is it a good thing or no point to it, since your not transferring to film? Or would you just shoot interlaced?

Thoughts and techs are appreciated.

If you're not transferring to film, then this becomes purely an asthetic choice. If you're shooting drama, then you might choose progressive to give a film-like look to your motion. If you were shooting sports, then progressive would most likely cause a displeasing jerky motion to your fast moving camera shots. Some soap operas are shot progressive and some not. "Live" programmes tend to be shot interlaced.

But apart from issues with fast camera movements, there is no technical bias for you decision.
