I usually shoot 1080 24p. I was collecting some pictures to put together onto a slideshow DVD for family and wanted to include scenes from video. Getting a frame as a png from 24p video was easy and good quality.
Some of my video happens to be 1080 60i (when you happen to switch camera to Auto mode it resets this). Trying to perform the same steps (extract frame from clip monitor) for 60i video leaves me with some not nice interlaced effects. (horizontal lines).
Viewing the same video from VLC I can stop the video at my desired "snap" and use "Video > Take SnapShot" tool to get the nice looking composition.
Clearly I am not understanding interlace and de-interlace very well, I think I know the basics.
Can I get a nice "snapshot" from kdenlive on 60i video?
