background image


Deinterlaces an interlaced object using one of several possible methods.

This filter causes rasterization in 3D groups. For more information on rasterization, see

About Rasterization


Parameters in the Inspector

Dominant Field:

Selects the dominant field. Value can be Upper or Lower.


Sets how the object is interlaced. This pop-up menu has three options:

Duplicate: The nondominant field is eliminated and the data from the dominant field

is duplicated to fill in the missing lines.

Interpolate: The nondominant field is eliminated and a new field is created by averaging

each pair of adjacent video lines to create new ones.

Blend: The nondominant field is eliminated and new lines are created by averaging

the eliminated line with each pair of adjacent video lines.


Sets the percentage of the original image to be blended with the filtered image.

HUD Controls
The HUD contains the following controls: Dominant Field and Method.

Using Filters

Motion has a flexible tool set that you can use to create simple shapes, complex
illustrations, and paint effects right in your project. The same techniques you use for
drawing can also be used to mask layers to produce a wide variety of transparency effects,
to crop out parts of still images, and to rotoscope moving subjects.
