FF: Interlace videos

The video that plays after hotwiring the ship plays fullscreen but is interlaced while others aren't. This made the video pretty hard to watch, maybe there is something that could be done with this video so it appear normal..

This is more of a feature request, really. ScummVM displays the video as interlaced because the source material is interlaced.

It would probably be fairly easy to make MoviePlayer::copyFrame() fill in the blanks, though. The trick would be to figure out when to do it. Unless all versions interlace the same movies, in which case that could be hard-coded.

It would be probably good to add this somehow to the encoder as it already has access to the Smacker flags.

That won't work, unfortunately.

I'm told that in the 4 CD version, the cutscenes are stored in half-size images with the "Y-interlaced" flag set, so the interlacing happens in the decoding.

However, in the 2 CD version, the cutscenes do not have the "Y-interlaced" flag. They use full-size images that just happen to have half of their lines blacked out.

This isn't a bug, several videos in the game are meant to shown with an interlaced style, as in the original game.
