Fake-interlaced
« on: June 08, 2010, 01:10:02 AM »
Hi,

I'm wondering, does MediaInfo detect x264's fake-interlaced setting and ignores it?
I can't get MediaInfo to show my stream as Interlaced, unless i also set --tff but then I assume that the actual encoding is interlaced, which I want to avoid.

Tried also adding --no-interlaced and --pic-struct but it didn't help. The stream shows as Progressive in MediaInfo. Also the "Encoding settings" x264 CLI doesn't show the fake-interlaced switch.

This is the CLI I'm using:

x264.exe --preset superfast --bitrate 7500 --profile main --level 4 --keyint 33 --ref 4 --mixed-refs  --b-pyramid none --bframes 3 --vbv-bufsize 15000 --vbv-maxrate 7500 --thread-input --threads auto  --sar 1:1 --nal-hrd cbr --aud --no-interlaced --fake-interlaced --pic-struct --output x264.264 source.avs

Using x264 1629 and MediaInfo 0.7.33.

Thanks

That's probably because Mediainfo isn't stupid and doesn't get "fooled" by fake-interlaced.

So what is the "target audience" of that feature that would be stupid enough? Standalones?
