100fps: How to deinterlace Video the right way. Examples, Tricks, Comparisons

Filesizes of lossless video compression.

(Nearly) Lossless video compression is sometimes needed when working with multiple software: Save video to work with it in another software.

Instead of comparing the filesizes of this DivX movie I compressed it now with HuffYUV and other methods.

So it is the same Movie (= deinterlaced, 50fps) but with different compression methods.

1)  DivX 93%

100%

This 100% is the same 100% as in Method 1 here. This is what I consider as good enough for archiving and not too big for archiving.
2)  DivX 100%

266%

How lossy is DivX? Should you use DivX 100% instead of HuffYUV?
3)  DV

1442%

This is the original as on tape. It is not deinterlaced. Just for comparison reasons.
4)  Ligos Indeo 5.11
100%

713%

I set Ligos to 100% and keyframe rate to "Every 500". This produces a very high quality movie, and one that can be played at 50 fps. Ligos Indeo has been known as Intel Indeo before.
5)  Ligos Raw R1.2

3998%

Is this lossless compression? Please email me, if you know more.
6)  Uncompressed

There is no reason why you should do this, except you don't have HuffYUV installed,
7)  HuffYuv 2.1.1
(best)

4772%

Huffyuv is a free codec, that is very fast and can compress losslessly. It produces video, where every frame is a keyframe, thus very fast when you edit this type of video material.
8)  HuffYuv 2.1.1
(best+YUY2)

2496%

This doesn't results in lossless video compression but is nearly lossless.
9)  HuffYuv 2.1.1
(best+alpha compression)

4772%

No difference to method 7).
10)  HuffYuv 2.1.1
(best

No difference to method 8).
11)  HuffYuv 2.1.1
(fastest)

5651%

Lossless compression mode of HuffYUV, but worse (=bigger) filesize. This is the choice when you want to capture on the fly.
12)  HuffYuv 2.1.1

No difference to method 11).
