Re: Interlaced DVDs (was: aspect ratio in Optura Xi?)

i have had some success with exporting video to tape
in a way which preserves the interlacing effect, which
it sounds to me is what you want. for me, the
challenge was to have the interlacing appear when the
video was projected (where interlacing is not used).

my advice to you would be export your video w/ the
interlacing w.o the aspect ratio change. then
re-import it and then apply this change. this works
b.c. the interlacing is then imbedded into the video's
native signal and more "stable" or likely to be
present on tape, dvd, monitor, lcd projection, etc...

however, reformating the aspect ratio might create an
insurmountable hurdle in regard to preserving the
interlacing. maybe try changing the field dominance ??

good luck.
