I'm using iMovie 08 with an HD camcorder. There is an option in the size settings to deinterlace. The video I make with a lot of motion seems fine to me without deinterlacing checked.

What are the pro's/con's to checking this box?

I'm assuming you are talking about exporting.

When exporting, you create interlaced content for television sets and I believe DVDs too since the MPEG2 files are probably interlaced. If your destination is a computer then deinterlace. You'll find the picture tends to look better on a computer screen when you deinterlace.

I've also recently read somewhere that deinterlacing can generate smaller files. I haven't tested that though.

When asking questions, post the version of your software. You'll receive better answers.

Please post your results to the thread as it is good feedback.

If you don't know then leave it...

check the box if you shot the video on a progressive camera or on film, otherwise if you don't know what you are doing you'll ruin the video and have to reexport it and waste time.
