Hi, I have a question for a real video/tv format guru.
I’ve been recording some greenscreen footage for a video project. I’m using a Canon GL1. The video is captured in interlaced, not progressive, format. Once I get the footage on my computer, I deinterlace it with Virtual Dub. Then, I import it into Blender and use a pluginto get my key. I’m not at all satisfied with my results. The rendered video shows the boundary between keyed and non-keyed elements vibrating erratically back and forth.
I suppose my problem could be any one of a number of things, like my camera resolution being too low, my plugin not being high enough quality, or my greenscreen not being properly lit, but I suspect that a large part of my problem is my interlaced footage.
Is there a reliable, high-quality way to get a decent key out of interlaced footage? If not, how much could I be expected to pay for a camera that shoots progressive?
Also, if anyone knows a link to a high-quality (preferably simple-to-use) keyer that they have used with good results in the past, please let me know.
