Sounds rather strong ("certainly not"), but those of us coming from the NTSC 
analog world all understood the concept of "interlaceD video" and the 
various word forms of it. We also understood the 5-blade shutter, 3:2 
pulldown, etc. Unfortunately, that often gets muddied when people coming 
from the progressive-scan world try to understand it.

Ref- https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Interlaced_video (which is pretty good)

With all of the latent issues with the ffmpeg docs, arguing over a "d" does 
not seem productive.
