OSSC can only do simple bob deinterlacing, which I tried on Amiga and it was pretty underwhelming. In January, an "OSSC Pro" was announced which is much more powerful and is expected to have more advanced deinterlacing algorithms.blindguy wrote: How does the OSSC handle interlaced?
OSSC has some really fine-grained scanline emulation control. If scanlines are mainly what you're looking for, then the OSSC has it covered.fxgogo wrote: I will most likely end up with the OSSC as well. I do however want to be able to emulate the CRT look on a modern flat screen monitor. Not sure if the OSSC can do this, I know I can with emulation, but we really need a hardware solution for this.
I used an OSSC for a while and was extremely happy with it. The one caveat is that it has difficulty syncing with the Amiga's RGB output and can require you to power-cycle it a few times before it manages to sync. A VGA adapter avoids this issue, but the problem then is that the OSSC's VGA input doesn't work with the low-pass filter that is needed to eliminate all the noise that comes through in the signal.
I was also really happy with the Indivision ECS, but you have much less fine-grained control compared to the OSSC. If you want as close to a pixel-perfect image as possible, then you really need the OSSC's advanced sampling and scaling options. Maybe the optimal solution is to configure the Indivision ECS to output at native resolution, and then scale it with the OSSC! I haven't tried that yet, though.
I recently got the new ZZ9000 RTG graphics card for my Amiga 2000, and I love it. That's going far beyond simply a "modern monitor solution" though, especially with the price tag, but it has native HDMI output and supports modern VGA resolutions such as 800x600, 1024x768, 1280x720 (720p), and 1920x1080 (1080p). Though I find anything above 800x600 causes the Workbench UI elements to become quite a bit too small for convenient use.
Edit: This image I captured a while back to test word processing is a good example of how great of an image you can produce with OSSC and Amiga's native RGB output. It's practically indistinguishable from an emulator.
