#4057 open defect

Interlacement information is not passed from the lavfi demuxer to the rawvideo decoder

Description

Summary of the bug:

The values for frame:interlaced_frames and frame:top_field_frame always seem to be set to zero.

If I generate a test file that is TFF via

ffmpeg -y -f lavfi -i mandelbrot -target ntsc-dv -t 0.5 -vf setfield=tff tff.mov

Note that I'm not looking for information from idet on what the interlacement or scan order 'looks' like but I am hoping to use top_field_first and interlaced_frame to decipher whether the codec or container reports the frame as. I tested a number of files and have not been able to ever get a 1 for top_field_first or interlaced_frame over a variety of codecs.

Is there a reason why you didn't test the following?

$ ffprobe tff.mov -show_entries frame=top_field_first,interlaced_frame

I agree that there may be a bug but don't you agree that it is almost certainly not related to ffprobe?

Ah, you're right:

So perhaps this means that the interlacement metadata is not passing through the movie filter. The reason I was using the movie filter is that I was hoping to generate one command to gather both info from idet about interlacement as well as info about what the codec/container says about interlacement to identify conflicts.

  • Component changed from ffprobe to avfilter
  • Keywords movie added
  • Reproduced by developer set
  • Status changed from new to open
  • Summary changed from ffprobe top_field_first shows zero on tff content to Interlacement information is not passed through the movie filter

Replying to dericed:

That was my guess but I don't know much about the internals of this filter.

Thank you for explaining this!

  • Keywords rawvideo added; movie removed
  • Summary changed from Interlacement information is not passed through the movie filter to Interlacement information is not passed from the lavfi demuxer to the rawvideo decoder
