    I am trying to convert a 1080p .mp4 movie to .m4v for iTunes, and I ran it through MPEG Streamclip, but when I exported, I got the error message "invalid framerate." I had not set a framerate, but after that, I set it to 23.97 and i got the error message "can't prepare the movie." Please help.

    By the way, what would be the best presets within Streamclip for a 1080p cinematic film? Note that interlacing can die in the fiery depths of hell... also note that I want all 2,073,600 pixels back.

    So, you want to do quality (read: no blend / odd / even / drop-frame) deinterlacing with, say, MCBob, TempGaussMC or Yadifmod+NNEDI?

    You stated your source is a cinematic film. Are you converting an i50/i60 camera recording or have an ATSC 3:2 pulldown (which requires another algorithm, not plain deinterlacing)? If neither is the case, your movie (despite the interlaced container / transport stream, if any) needs not be deinterlaced with any specific algorithm.

    Try just changing the file's .mp4 to .m4v. It works sometimes.
