  • Best strategy for de-telecining difficult footage

    Posted by Noam Osband on March 14, 2023 at 9:35 pm

    So, I’m working on a project and some of it was shot 10 years ago on a Canon XA-10 with the dreaded 24PF format.

    I’m working on a film in FCPX that’s 24fps. I took the footage and did Reverse Telecine in Compressor. This solved the issue for most of the footage, but some of it had people walking past the camera, and there is still some slight interlacing after the Reverse Telecine in Compressor.

    Any suggestions for what to try? I still have a backup of the original card I shot this on. Is there any way to somehow try to reverse it from the card rather than once it’s been exported as 30i.

    I know FCPX has a way to stop the conversion in importing, but that only works if it’s from the camera. That option is greyed out if I try to import again.

    I’ve used Topaz labs’ Video AI that will de-interlace and much more. There’s a fully-functional trial on their site.

    Have you tried simply putting the original footage I an FCPX 30fps timeline, then export, see what it looks like?
