Kia ora,

*Andy*: thanks very much for this tip! Will add that filter to the script
as I definitely want to deinterlace.
Do you recommend this over *yadif*, or do I need to combine *scale* with a
deinterlacing filter?

*Kieran*: Hey there! How did I miss that ffmprovisr included that?
Excellent and great point about its use in QCTools.

Thanks again,
