Why old video has interlacing artifacts? Interlacing artifacts appear when we want to display an interlaced video on a progressive screen. As most of modern screens are progressive, interlacing artifacts often appear when watching old interlaced videos. Interlaced format was heavily used up to mid 2000 because it had lower bandwidth and was thus cheaper and easier to broadcast.

Why recent videos does not have interlacing artifacts? Modern cameras shoot in the progressive format, which is free of any artifacts found in interlaced formats.

Does all video produced before 2005 need Deinterlacer? It can also be the case that the video has already been de-interlaced. De-interlacing means the video was converted from the interlaced to the progressive format. In this case, you don’t need to apply the Deinterlacer filter.

The best way to find out if the video is in the interlaced format is to play the video in your favorite video player and see if there are any interlacing artifacts. They usually appear when objects are moving quickly around, e.g. cars moving, people running… Make sure to disable the de-interlacing in the video player as most of them automatically have this option enabled.

Tips for best results: Combine Deinterlacer with other filters to enhance other attributes like AI Upscale In case of poor light conditions add a Noise Reduction filter.
