Full Version: Interlaced animation looks Horrible

I've been using Xbmc for a few months now, & have got it working pretty well (apart from the near 100% Cpu usage i posted about before)

But Im having problems getting an acceptable picture with the region 1 Ntsc DVD of Batman Beyond. Initially I thought it looked really vibrant but when there was any movement the animation was plagued with the dreaded combing effect. I've tried all the de-interlace options & the only ones that get rid of the combing is Bob & De-interlace. But these settings introduce Juddering when panning & Lines change from smooth to very Jaggy.

I have other interlaced Live action DVDS that seem to play fine. This is putting me off watching the Batman Beyond DVDSad not good.

I know i could just hook up my old DVDplayer again but it kinda defeats the purpose of building a dedicated MedaiCentre Pc for the Living room.
Any help on this would be much appreciatedBig Grin
Sadly we currently we don't have any good deinterlacers for dvdplayer in linux.

That's a pity. Are there plans to implement something soon? Don't mean to seem pushy on this but I have a lot of Tv show's & animation on dvd.

I still cant believe Xbmc is free, its so customizable with all the available skins & adons. Im using the Aeon skin right now & it looks amazing.

I know I could use one of the other players on Ubuntu but my Tv has some overscan & you can compensate for this in Xbmc. Maybe someone on here knows of some other Videoplayer that allows you to calibrate for overscan?
