I have video captured from VHS (.avi, encoded with HuffYUV using what I believe are optimal capture settings as defined elsewhere on this forum) and now I'm working on encoding them with H.264/H.265 for sharing (don't worry, I'll save the originals for archival purposes.)

The video is, of course, at 29.97fps, and I'm using QTGMC to deinterlace it, which doubles the frame rate to 59.94 or whatever. My questions are:

- What frame rate should I encode this at? 29.97? or 30? I see no reason to go with ~60fps for the copies I am distributing, though if there's a good reason to I'm happy to change my mind.

- Where should I set this new frame rate? Should I do it in AVISynth using FPSDivisor=2? Or should I enforce the new framerate with my encoder (FFmpeg) where I can also specify a desired framerate?

Not sure if any of this makes a difference, but I'd love to know if something is more optimal than the other. Any tips are appreciated. Thanks in advance!

You want the QTGMC default, 59.94 fps.
