Yes, I was looking at the case of converting 60i to 50i.

I have to admit I did not consider using yadif in a frame-for-each-field
mode. If the results are better this way would have to be tested but the
result of my initial test with deinterleaving and reinterleaving looked
good and I also looked at the results on a progressive display using VLC
with yadif as deinterlacer and I didn't see any artifacts when playing the

I did not test increasing the frame rate. It may be different when doing
that. Anyway, I am happy to have an additional viable option I had not
thought about before.
