To process interlaced television video, in which each frame contains alternating pairs of lines from two separate fields captured at slightly different times. The motion between fields can cause visible tearing when displayed on a computer monitor. Deinterlacing uses every other line from one field and interpolates new in-between lines without tearing. See also interlace, NTSC.
Deinterlaces interlaced video content, especially from TV signals or before capturing video content (see interlace for more details).
The process of removing artifacts that result from the nature of two-fields-per-frame (interlaced) video. There are various methods of deinterlacing, and may be done in the camera or in the editing application.
