Hi there guys...first let it be said that (from the internet) An interlaced display is capable of displaying each field separately. Because of this, an interlaced video will play much more smoothly than a progressive video when using an interlaced display. Therefore, if you're planning to watch your output video on a TV (through an SVCD, for example), it's best to leave your video as interlaced. On the other hand, if you want to watch your video on a progressive computer monitor, it's a good idea to deinterlace your video. Because a progressive display updates both fields of a frame at once, you won't see the increased smoothness of interlaced video that occurs on an interlaced display. Instead you'll see interlacing artifacts, which don't look very good. That's why it's recommended to deinterlace your video if you'll be watching it on a computer. Taking that into account I think that both my plasma tv and surely my projector both display progressive, while my cannon HfG10 shoots either in 50i or 25p Either way both bluerays also feed the tv/proj a progressive signal, thus I understand that deinterlacing will take place for sure if I shoot in 50i (which is the standard for the cam) but as Ive read that 50i would produce more smooth pans and better moving images I keep wondering if it wouldnt be better to shoot in 50i. Any ideas??
