[FFmpeg-user] Interlace vs. Interleaved Fields

Thank you, Kieran.

That didn't work (it came out progressive) but this does:

ffmpeg -y -i "C0008.MP4" -s 1920x1080 -pix_fmt yuv422p10le -vf interlace  -flags +ildct+ilme  -acodec copy output.mp4

You must add the flags ildct and ilme (interlace discrete cosine transform and interlace motion estimation).

Here is my dilemma: my camcorder outputs 1080p. My contribution requirement is either 1080i or 720p.

>From a quality standpoint, am I better off converting the 1080p to 1080i or 720p?
