Sadly I haven't really used the classic Macs much, so I don't have a good basis for comparison. The other factor here is that I'm running the video signal through an OSSC upscaler and outputting it to a 24-inch LCD monitor. Blasphemy, I know. But aside from my preference for pixel-perfect video, I also do Amiga livestreams which requires that kind of digital setup.
I managed to capture the interlaced video so you can get an idea of how pristine it really looks. You would think this is captured from an emulator, but it is in fact captured from my real hardware - and this is the same picture that's going to my LCD.
And here's Final Writer:
At 720x480, these render quite small on modern monitors. To give you a better idea of what I see on my display, here
is the capture scaled up to 1080p. It's possible to get a much crisper upscale (see this image
), but I don't currently have the hardware to display this on my monitor for interlaced mode specifically.
