Deinterlacing Video with Episode Pro 4.2.2 for H.264 encoding

I notice an interesting occurance while working with Episode Pro 4.2.2 encoding H.264 real-time streaming videos with the .mp4 and .mov wrapper. The QuickTime and H.264 presets for 256kbps need to be adjusted to correctly deal with moving areas of interlaced video. Even if you have Automatic Detection choosen for Field Order and Complete Deinterlace, Deinterlace Interlaced Frames (automatic), or Deinterlace Moving Areas (automatic) interlaced frames still might show up in your H.264 real-time streaming output file.

If you have a DV source with motion and you run across this issue using Episode Pro with the 256kbps presets you need to navigate to the Video Tab in Episode Pro 4.2.2 and change the Field Order under the Deinterlace Filter. Automatic detection of the field order is selected by default but the application likes it if you provide the Field Order of your source. With a DV source the field order is Bottom Field, Even Field or Lower Field and all mean the same thing. Select the field order of Bottom in Episode Pro 4.2.2. Next you can select Complete Deinterlace, Deinterlace Interlaced Frames (automatic), or Deinterlace Moviing Areas (automatic). After encoding you should notice a smooth looking video output for you H.264 real-time streaming video.
