Thanks, that does help and the explaination and history was quite enlightening. It does indeed answer one of my questions. I like how you describe it as 60 half resolution frames per second. What I also want to know is if camcorders capture images at 60 half frames per second. Or does it capture images at 30 fps and then record each frame at 2 half frames. Deinterlacing video renders it as progressive scan and theoretically these sets two half frames should be combined to 1 complete frame, right? But if half frame 2 was captured on the CCD 1/60 of a second after half frame 1 then combining these two half frames would be merging two points in time that occured 1/60 of a second apart. Granted 1/60 of a second is virtually nothing but I want to know if half frame 1 and half frame 2 contain information recieved the the CCD pixels at the same 1/60 of a second. Essentially, if I have footage that is interlaced, would it be better to deinterlace the footage, and encoded the video to DVD as progressive scan video or is it better to leave the interlaced video as interlaced on the DVD.
