It works well with both progressive and interlaced sources. It's a two-pass filter that is quite effective and fast. Here's a demo clip I made:

I had to compress the crap out of it to fit the 2-meg limit, so the quality isn't as good as I'd like but it does illustrate the effect well. It's better to not watch it in full screen.
