The colour burst in adjacent lines is out of sync by 1/2 pi, that's what you forgot to take into account. The luma signal on the "stripes" pattern is the same every line, but the decoded chroma signal from it isn't! But of course, after averaging, the end result is the same on every line. For the checkerboard, the luma is negated every other line, which means after averaging the chroma has shifted 90 degrees relative to the stripes pattern. You can see what the colours look like without averaging on the very first line of the pattern (it averages with the previous line, which is black, which is sent out by the VIC as zero amplitude chroma). You cannot really see it on the line after the pattern, because it has almost zero luminance (black again), hard to see anything there :-) Segher Message was sent through the cbm-hackers mailing listReceived on 2011-11-21 07:00:03
