Clean up Images Captured From Film

If you have an image that was taken from a freeze frame from film, you might see lines going all the way across it. This is called interlacing and it is caused by the horizontal lines used to make up the images on tv.

To fix it, go into Photoshop and and select Filter > Video > De-Interlace. The deault settings are Odd Fields and Interpolation. They are generally fine.

Last thing to do if you are going back to film with it or re-importing it into Final Cut or Premier Pro etc, is go to the Image Size dialog and UN-check the constrain proportions option. Make sure the sizes suit your video output size ie 720 x 576 for DV-PAL.
