Question About PS2's DVD Progressive Scan
Question About PS2's DVD Progressive Scan –
I know I'm going for a longshot here, but does the PS2 support progressive scan WITH 3:2 pulldown?
Umm, 3/2 pulldown is the endocing scheme on the DVD.
I suspect what you want to ask is does the progressive scan dvd support know how to do inverse telicine to remove the 3/2 pulldown that's already present on most movies.
Most progressive scan players will do this right with most movies, but bad source material can trip many players up. you'll just have to try those problem movies and test.
Yeah I should have worded it like this : basically, in order to see a film in its most correct state, it should be shown at 24 frames per second. So, in order to do this, the DVD player needs to be able to reverse the 3:2 pulldown process that was used to put the video onto DVD and output it in its original 24 frames per second format. This is accomplished by a DVD player that is equipped with a special type of MPEG decoder, combined with a de-interlacer that reads the 3:2 pulldown interlaced video signal off the DVD and extracts the proper film frames from the video frames, progressively scans those frames, makes any artifact corrections, and then transfers this new video signal through component cables from the DVD player.
So to reask my question correctly, does the PS2 support progressive scan with 3:2 pulldown detection?
