Thank you for your review! To clear things up: the DVD version of my short is interlaced, because Reno 911! was recorded in an interlaced format as well. Unlike interlaced copies of film media where frames are repeated, a native NTSC interlaced source boasts 60 distinct fields per second. The highest progressive frame rate supported by DVD is 30. For a progressive version on the disc, I would have had to either blend every two fields into one frame (resulting in motion blur), or remove half the fields (resulting in less smooth motion and more jaggies) - I took the later approach for the Vimeo version. A progressive scan deinterlacer (bob is the most common and least processor intensive, I think) will convert the interlaced fields into 60 progressive frames per second.
