The term 'interlaced video' may cause chills to the seasoned video editor.  There are a variety of ways to 'deinterlace' video, but depending how you go about the process may lead to inferior results. 

Today, you'll mostly likely encounter an 'interlacing' problem when viewing 'standard defination' mini-dv video on the web, or viewing a QuickTime file playing SD media on a computer screen.

I stumbled upon a free program called 'Deinterlacer' by JES Schotsman.  So, I ran through a quick test using it's default parameters.  Here are the results.  Wow!, I'm sold.

This is a typical example of what an interlaced frame looks like from an interlaced SD or HD video source.  Notice how the image looks blurry from displaying both fields of video on a single frame.

Notice the difference, after the video has been deinterlaced.  You'll also notice that 'JES Deinterlacer' also runs a color correction algorithm to automatically for color contrast.

The JES deinterlacing software is extremely easy to use.  Just point to a source file under the input tab, and set the destination under the output tab.

I tested the 'JES Deinterlacer' running the latest version of Snow Leopard '10.6.2' at the time of this article. The only drawback is this program is only written for Macintosh operating system.  Amazingly, a Mac OS 9 version also exists.
