What's the best shutter speed to use shooting motion in 60 interlaced?
I'm working with some SD DV footage that includes some boats moving quickly. A lot of that was shot close up. I'm amazed at the artifacts that interlaced is producing. Quite frankly you feel you need new glasses when you look at it. Freeze a frame and the horizontal edges of each phase jump out. I have no idea what the shutter speed is in these shots but just wonder if this effect is totally unavoidable shooting interlaced. Possibly my camera was shooting at a very low shutter speed, so that might exagerate these artifacts, but even if I had shot at a very high speed they'd still be there, just perhaps to a lesser degree. Right? So any thoughts on this? Any ideas about the best way to capture motion when shooting interlaced. (This is ten-year old footage, so I suspect I'll have to try and recreate the event shooting progressive this time.)
