  1. TDecimate() removes one of every five frames by default because it's basic design is for NTSC telecined film. Of course, there are other options with it, but you don't want to use it for this type of conversion because it is more likely to leave blended frames in the video.

    If your source was originally 25p then you probably want to SRestore() to 25p. But if your source was originally 25i (likely with live TV shows: sports, news...) you probably won't ever get a smooth, fully deblended result.

  2. The show is called five mile creek. I have an NTSC dvd, but the show was filmed in australia in the 80s. I am a mac user, and have no way of figuring out if it was 25p or 50i. It doesnít have any special effects, like start trek where they had film and added special effects in video. So i am hoping its 25p. I am running qtgmc bob placebo srestore omode=3 fps =50, womdering if i should use some of the advanced omodes like pp3

    If It was recorded At 25p, will i just have double frames? Or will that mean srestore wonít remove enough blended frames. (if not i will re-encode at 25fps, just to see what it looks like anyway)
    And if its 50i, leaving it at 50fps should be ok, right?

    I will say that just doing qtgmc placebo bob looks good, but i def think getting rid of blended frames would make it look even better.

  3. According to IMDB Five Mile Creek was shot on film (24p) so the PAL video release was probably just sped up to 25p. If you're not getting decent results with QTGMC().SRestore() upload a sample of the MPEG2 video. Use a program like DgIndex or Mpg2cut2 to trim out a short segment from the body of the TV show, not the intro which is often different from the body (sped up, slowed down, titles as 25i over 25p, etc). Include a 2+ second medium speed panning shot (easiest to detect the source frame rate) along with some other moderate motion. You might want to start your own thread for this.

    Note that SRestore() generally takes a while to sync after a seek. So don't expect to seek to some random spot in the video and get nice clean results. Single step through the video for several seconds to verify you're getting good results after a second or two (worth of frames). Stepping through the video backwards will not give clean results.

  4. Adamcater, Here's a short segment of your source cleanly restored to 25 fps with QTGMC().SRestore().

  6. I used the default SRestore settings (the AviSynth version):

    frate = not set (defaults to 25 fps in this case)
    omode = 6
    speed = 9
    mode = 2
    thresh = 22

    Default QTGMC() settings too (preset="slower").

    I don't know if these transfer directly the Vapoursynth versions.

  7. Ok thanks.

    You said the opening video with titles still had some combing. (they looked great with deinterlacing alone in qtgmc bob at 59.94). Womdering if i should make a mixed video cut the intro out and deinterlace it then run the rest of the video thru srestore and remove blends. Will see how Ďbadí they are, would decreasing the threshold improve that comb removal of the Titles I womder?

    What will i need to do to the audio for sync? I use audacity.

  8. The opening titles didn't have any combing after QTGMC() but there was some residual blending after SRestore(). It's very common for opening titles to be sped up or slowed down so that the video matches the theme music, or whatever. The original PAL video probably had blending in the title sequence from that so you can't expect QTGMC().SRestore() to produce perfectly non-blended frames. I would just use QTGMC().SRestore() for the whole video -- I hate VFR!

  9. Me too good call. Blending isnt too too bad, itís combing i cant stand.

    And audio you think it will sync? Or do i need to audacity it.

  10. If the video length doesn't change, the audio remains in synch. When using QTGMC().SRestore() the length doesn't change.

  11. Nice, ok,
    Thank you both to manono and jagabo.

    Stay tuned next week when i ask about what setting to use to bring PAL cartoon dvds back to original NTSC dvds.
    Am i still using srestore omode 6?

  12. Iíve been ripping this dvd series. And i have to say, it looks 100x better with the removed blended frames. Thank you jagabo. Seriously. You have my deepest thanks.
