Hi all,

It's been an exciting weekend as all of my capture hardware seems to be working well enough to use again. Now that I've got usable HuffYUV AVI captures I want to take the next steps towards editing and publishing. With each tape I plan to have an interlaced file for storage on DVD, and another deinterlaced file for streaming and cloud storage.

My question today is about which computer I should be using to run QTGMC. On the AviSynth Wiki it is mentioned that QTGMC is demanding on system hardware. That said, should I even attempt to run QTGMC on my XP capture PC, or should I use a more powerful PC running 64 bit Windows 7 with a quad core i7, SSD, and 16 GB ram for deinterlacing? I have VirtualDub2 and HuffYUV 2.1.1 installed on my Windows 7 PC if that information is of any use.

QTGMC is slow, so use the faster CPU you have. SSD also helps here, to read/write.

Play with the settings. Don't just use ("slower") mode, but look into fast/faster, and read up on the finer uses such as TR=2, and sourcematch. Find a good mix of speed, non-blurring, and not leaving artifacts. My Avisynth sampler guide currently has "slower" as default, but I may change that by end of year.

And Avisynth+ x64 is much faster at a pure quick deinterlace. Much, much faster. At least on my i7-6700K build.
