I’ve been struggling to find the correct workflow for using Fieldskit Deinterlacer in Premiere Pro 2017. All tutorials and manuals focus on After Effects, but there is no clear direction for Premiere. Given all the different deinterlacing settings within Premiere, its confusing as to how I am suppose to set up a sequence in order to accurately use Fieldskit for the best result.
My footage is 29.97 Interlaced, which I would like to convert to progressive.
Do you have a field issue or a 3/2 pulldown issue (all frames have fields or just some)?
Answer: all frames have fields. Motion appears to stutter (frames appear to duplicate). I’d like to eliminate or greatly reduce this. I’m hoping that properly deinterlacing with Fieldskit can greatly help, but I’m unsure if I am doing it correctly within Premiere Pro 2017.
Select the clip in Project Bin, right-click mouse menu Modify-> Interpret Footage
Does it say Progressive or provides a Field Order?
Answer: Fields are lower
Is the sequence settings progressive or with fields?
Answer: I’ve tried both. I don’t notice any difference when using Fieldskit in a sequence set to either/or
1) Note in Display Monitor menu (right click mouse) – look for Fields – notice by default in interactive mode Premiere is set to show first field only – if you are at display and paused resolution 100% – you should see in a Field Project the image changing when swithching from one to other (first versus second field). You see field artifacts but you don’t see the action being a 1/2 frame timewise apart.
2) Looks like your movie is just incorrectly labeled fields – set to Progressive in Interpret footage and set Sequence to Progressive – however it’s actually 15 FPS somehow – old camera used to do that with low-exposure situation… so you do have doubling of each frame.
