I dislike it too, but that's just an opinion . He's asking a technical
question - that deserves a technical answer

most deinterlacers have 2 modes, single and double rate. For example, yadif
has mode =0, or  mode =1 . eg. if you stared with a 29.97 interlaced source,
you will get 29.97p in single rate, 59.94p in double rate. Double rate is
more "proper" for interlaced content. Single rate discards half the temporal

In general, blend deinterlacing is terrible, the worst type of
deinterlacing, but he "needs" it for his specific scenario.  The "quality"
of yadif is quite low ,deinterlacing and aliasing artifacts. bwdif is
slightly better, and there are more complex deinterlacers not offered by
