Allyn, if you are going to host this thing, learn proper English. 'Like,' your incessant use of 'like' makes it 'like' this podcast is hosted by, 'like,' a Valley Girl.

The frames per second stuff sounds like the "bob" de-interlacing setting in handbrake. This seems to be the best de-interlacing setting if the source video is actually stored as interlaced and is "cleanly" interlaced. I have run into some videos where they have edited interlaced and non-interlaced video segments together without de-interlacing first. This causes all kinds of issues when attempting to de-interlace. Editing video in interlaced form can also introduce artifacts, since it can confuse the de-interlacer. I would hope that modern video editing tools would not allow you to make cuts in between the two fields of each frame. I have seen this on a music video DVD I ripped. It was an older video that had edits that caught only one field of a frame. This caused the de-interlacer to generate strange results. Also, I have seen several cases of videos that were resized while still interlaced and then stored as progressive. This results in terrible quality and probably can not be fixed.

In handbrake the bob setting takes each field and constructs a full progressive frame. I don't know if it uses neighboring frames to do the re-construction. I think this is a lot better than attempting to blend the interlacing out, since this loses information. I have had bob generate good results if the original source had not been messed with. The bob setting doubles the frame rate though, since you get a full frame for each field. Handbrake can also reverse 3:2 pulldown (telecine). This is interlacing to create intermediate frames when converting between different frame rates. I don't know if it supports reversing anything other than 24 to 30 fps conversions. It allows you to restore the original frame rate and remove interlacing artifacts.
