Well, that's a good question. The source I'm referring to seemed, to
my eyes, to be both hard telecined and interlaced. Now it's quite
possible that at each given moment it was either telecined or
interlaced, I'm not sure.
All I can say is that it needed to be inverse telecined in order to
preserve sync, and that after being inverse telecined pullup, the
picture still showed combed edges (i.e. interlaced).

On that source, filmdint was yielding the best picture.

bounces when he hits bottom.
