Especially laborious was producing the 1:1 resolution clip (1500 Kbps), because it required a 'smart' deinterlacing algorithm that removed interlaced lines ("combing", "mice teeth") around moving objects while keeping still parts of the frame intact. I invented my own algorithm of several steps that could be done by hand in Premiere 6.0, but later found quite a lot of info on existing deinterlacing methods. Since the resulting file became quite big, it also brought up some interesting issues on what limits the speed of Web downloads. I even missed a date due to this.
Yet after all the effort, one of the girls would demand to remove the whole clip,
because she "doesn't like the way she looks in the interview"
