What exactly are you trying to do???
Interlacing is when you show every other line in one frame and then the other every other line in the next. This is how a regular tv works. You get lines 1,3,5,7,9...in one blink and 2,4,6,8... in the next. I think this was originally done because the electronics in the day were not fast enough to to play the lines in sequence like 1,2,3,4,5... so they "interlaced" the the scan lines that make up a tv picture. Computer monitors do not work that way. They (normally) use progressive scan and display every line in every frame.
De interlacing is the combining of the even and odd frames to make a progressive scan frame. The term is also used to decribe any blending filter process that makes the striping effect from interlacing less noticable.
Telecine is the addition of additional frames to make up for the difference between the "film" standard of 23.97 fps and the "ntsc tv video" standard of 29.97 fps. When a big budget hollywood film is originally recorded it is done on film. You can hold the film up to a light and see each frame of the movie and even with no projector you could get an idea what the movie was about. Film is recorded at about 24 frames per second and when you play a film back you play it at 24 frames per second. Most of us don't have a movie projector at our houses, we have vcrs or dvd players. The frame rate for a dvd is 29.97 frames per second. See the problem? When a movie that was shot on film is transfered to dvd it is telecined from roughly 24 fps to 29.97 fps by adding additional "dummy" frames.
Inverse telecine is the removal of the dummy frames to go back to 24 fps. This is done to save space and results in no quality loss cause the dummy frames are just extra anyways.
Pornos and cheep movies are shot on tape at 29.97 fps originally and do not need to be telecined to go to dvd and CANNOT be inverse telecined because they were never telecined in the first place.
Lastly, aiw 8500s are no good. My aiw Radeon is much better for what you are doing. Please send me your card and I'll send you mine in trade. You will be much happier with the original Radeon then the cheep copy you are running.
