Sometimes it’s wanted / needed to have all files ’the same’.

> In broadcast, over here interlaced is mandatory, even if the content is

> So no, it’s NOT complicated, and no, it’s NOT outdated.

I was only referring to applicability of my statement, not to the practice
as such — only taking the (likely) possibility into consideration that one
would have a different (i.e., better) approach to the required workflows
than I did about 10 years ago. If the solution is still applicable, I have
no reason nor intention to object or make a judgment.
