I have a graphic animation in progressive format. I have it both in 60p and 30p .avi files. I want to use it in a 60i timeline. Deinterlacing all my 60i footage is not an option. Simply dropping the progressive footage on the timeline and rendering it interlaced along with the rest does not yield satisfactory results. When playing back on a media player with deinterlacing enabled, the progressive footage looks like crap. But when rendered on it's own as progressive, it looks great.
So, long story short, does anybody know how I can turn 60p, or 30p, whichever is preferred, to 60i? I have tried with Virtualdub's interlace filter but it converted the 60p file to 30p and had no visible effect on the 30p file.
I have Sony Vegas to work with along with BCC8 series of plugins and effects for Vegas as well as Virtualdub.
Thank you for your assistance.
