This particular source I am working on deinterlaces and looks great but in the CGI parts or fast moving scenes, there are these leftover lines/combing artifacts. I'm pretty sure I am using TIVTC correctly on it.
Here is a screenshot of what I am talking about. You will notice them most just off to the side of the vehicle.
I tried my usual fix for these which is Santiag() and it removed them, but its destructive to and or smears things like text on the license plate for example and some details in more detailed scenes. Here is a before and after shot of the video with Santiag() being used on it.
I also tried QTGMC and it did get rid of them, but even with sourcematch=3 it was way too destructive on things for me to accept. Entire parts of things disappeared or smudged out, especially on the reflection on the glass. It became a solid smear and no longer looked like trees.
Does anyone have other suggestions on things to try to remove these?? I would like the effect of Santiag without the smearing or destruction of some things.

Probably vinverse or vinverse2
But I would try to get something better with some IVTC options first
You could use vInverse() along with an edge mask to protect higher contrast detail:
edges = mt_edge(chroma="-128") Overlay(vInverse(), last, mask=edges)
I did not however try it with a mask. I will have to try that and see if it wields any better results. I'm not too experienced with creating and using masks so I will give what you suggested a try.
killerteengohan Could you point out exactly where these artifacts are?
This is serious, I have a good vision but I do not see anything wrong with this image.
Sorry, but I really would like to know where there is some flaw in that.
He's talking about the blurring of the small text on the licence plate, etc.
