Issue #175 - Interlacing
Posted: 06 Nov 2007 12:28 PM
I got an email a few days ago from someone heavily into the subject of BFF versus TFF. That's Bottom Field First or Top Field First when it comes to interlaced files.

He got into it when looking at Tivo files... which are TFF. So are the MPEG-2 files recorded on a Sony DCR-SR42 HDD camcorder.

On the other side, BFF.... are all the DV-AVI files we've looked at so far, and the MPEG-2 files made for DVDs by Pinnacle Studio.

I'm going to take my camcorder and shoot some blue, green, and red screen shots of Aeromouse playing around on my laptop screen. I'll shoot some in interlaced mode, and some in progressive. Then run the files through various software and see what comes out.... TFF or BFF.... and see if it makes a difference.

The issue will be published to subscribers by Nov 10th and be online for open viewing about February.
