Calling all video gurus: Help!
I have a few clips that I’ve got from a stock tape that exhibit a weird pulldown pattern. The footage looks looks to be originally shot in 25p (such as european film might be), and then converted to NTSC 30i in a 4:2 pattern, so the frame progression goes like this:
AA BB CC CD DE EE
Has anyone seen this pattern before? Does anyone know how to remove it? Conversion to “PAL proper” is not required— all I need to do is extract and reconstruct that D frame, and get the clips back to a 25p frame rate.
I have After Effects, Final Cut Pro, Motion and have access to Combustion. I would also be willing to pay for a moderately priced plugin or helper application if it’ll do the deed.
