So I noticed while playing with the new camcorder that it can record in "film" mode (24 frames per second). This seemed like a neat option to have if I ever wanted to make my own music videos or laserdisc-styled games so I started trying it out only to discover that Canon saves all videos at 60i for some silly reason. It can be converted back to 24p but only with some effort. Groan.
So I decided to undertake the challenge and eventually found this page. It got me most of the way there, but I was still stuck at a few parts.
Here is what I did to finally get unstuck and get wookin' (and thanks to Warren for spending time helping me with this also!) :
I had to also install the this package in addition to ffdshow (I may not have enabled something properly on ffdshow, I dunno):
For ffdshow, I did not need to enable deinterlacing (in fact I suspect this should be avoided), nor did I need to choose ffmpeg-mt (although this may speed things up and doesn't seem to hurt anything).
My AVS template needed to be modified and looks like this:
### Batch Intermediate Inverse Telecine Template
### Requires: TIVTC.dll
Also, my Batch Intermediate Creator prefs look like this:
