    I've been trying to do 1080i to 480i dvd conversions from hdtv. It looks ok but I did test one out on a hdtv at my sister's house and it was really jerky movement. But it looks ok as far as I can tell on a regular tv.

    What I've been using is tmpgenc and not doing any deinterlacing or pulldown or the like. I just tell it to go from interlace to interlace. But my question is HOW DO YOU DETERMINE THE FIELD ORDER?

    Is there a surefire way to always get the correct field order for the conversion??? 720p is so easy to convert because you just tell tmpgenc its a progressive source and thats it. But with interlace I'm still not 100% sure.

    What programs can read the .ts file and tell me what the field order is to ensure a proper 1080i to 480i encoding??? Because I'd like to be able to make a dvd from a 1080i source that looks good on a hdtv AND a standard (I only have a standard tv myself). I don't want to have to deinterlace it if I have to because I imagine that will add a CONSIDERABLE amount of processing time - I'd like to avoid that if possible.

    Thanks again for all the great help. My 720p to 480p discs look GREAT

  2. Hi-

    But my question is HOW DO YOU DETERMINE THE FIELD ORDER?

    Open it in DGIndex and run the Preview.

    And if these are movies, I think you'd also best IVTC them back to 23.976fps progressive film.

    Ok I'll check out dgindex. Actually they are tv shows. Thanks

  4. Hi-

    Most TV shows these days are also shot on film, have a native framerate of 23.976fps, and could also benefit from IVTC. Good luck.
