[FFmpeg-user] Trying to remember how I did this.....

I had some DVD Video that I had converted using ffmpeg some years ago. What
I did was converted NTSC DVD video (4x3) to 960x720 @59.94 FPS and the
result was incredible. I had found a forum some time later where another
user claimed he had done the same and he too had incredible results. The
result as I recall is way better than deinterlacing and I still have some
of the videos I upscaled this way. . It essentially creates a frame
for every field and if I pause the video I may see a slight blur but no
scan lines. I also see no scan lines while video is playing

I do remember that I did it all with ffmpeg command line conversions. It
does NOT use deinterlacing as that throws away half the resolution, and
results in visible scan lines. Instead it increases the frame rate by two
and I chose to upscale to 720P. As I recall I also did some PAL as well as
NTSC using the same method.

I am looking to recover this method if I can as I will be transferring a
bunch of Digital8 videos and want to do it the same way to create mp4 files
at 720P at 59.94FPS

Any help appreciated
