I wondered if anyone knew how to get the best result from de-interlacing the .mts video files from the Panasonic HDC-TM700 camcorder. I think my video has to much flickering

The camera is bought in Germany. I usually use ClipWrap to convert the files til .mov-files that can be read in Final Cut Pro.

Any tips on how to de-interlace to remove these flicker lines using Final Cut Pro or Compressor? Or any other third party software.

I'm mainly deinterlacing movie / TV sources but if your encoding programme supports .avs AviSynth input source then you could look at either MCBob, TDeint or Yadif filters:

For Mac, you could try Handbrake which supports deinterlacing but haven't used myself (PC man) although I know others use it as their default encoder.

Thanks James, I will look further into that. – Kasper Sørensen Apr 4 '11 at 10:08
No problems, hope it fixes things. If you're looking for help on AviSynth specifics I'd advise checking out the Doom9 forums as they have a section dedicated to it. – James Apr 4 '11 at 18:55
Hi James, Unfotrunately I'm on a Mac, and it seems that AVIsynth is Windows-only. – Kasper Sørensen Apr 6 '11 at 7:17
Added Mac option for you ;-) – James Apr 6 '11 at 21:37
