 I'm using the following filter:

 -vf nnedi=weights.bin:all:af

 This generally works great, however, when converting 50i to 50p footage it
 causes a flicker at the top and bottom field in most frames.

 It seems that odd frames are simply black. It would be good if it used a
 bob/weave here as the result is distracting. yadif=1 produces worse
 results overall (e.g. scrolling text looks horrible) but does not produce
 this same flicker.

 This doesn't just happen on PAL videos like this with a black half row at
 the top/bottom. It happens on any video when `af` is specified.

 Using `a` mode works fine but obviously drops 50% of frames.
