I’m working with interlaced video, and I want the ability to treat the individual fields that make up each frame, as if they were frames.
I want to be able to separate each frame into its two fields – to step through the fields individually – to delete some, rearrange some, change their order – and most importantly, I want the ability to recombine an upper field and a lower field to form a single frame again.
I DO NOT want software that interpolates the missing data to make each field into a full frame by itself. I want the fields to remain fields, with half their visual data missing, until I decide to recombine them manually into frames.
Is this possible?
I use a Mac and currently edit on Final Cut Pro. My source is a commercial DVD, a TV show shot on film but edited on video, presented at 29.97 interlaced.
Help would be greatly appreciated! Thanks in advance! 😃
