It seems with m2ts source and deinterlace on I get this mpeg2enc line:

/data/data/com.termux/files/home/cinelerra/cinelerra-5.1/bin//mpeg2enc -v
0  -b 8000 -q 1 -a 2 -F 3 -H -c -I 0 -M 8 -f 8 -g 15 -G 15 -R 0 -o

no "-z" , also "I"  equals zero

but mediainfo still says:

Scan type                                : Progressive
    Scan order                               : Top Field First

yet ffprobe says

Input #0, mpegvideo, from
Duration: N/A, bitrate: N/A      Stream #0:0: Video: mpeg2video (Main),
yuv420p(tv, bt470bg, progressive), 720x576 [SAR 16:15 DAR 4:3], 25 fps, 25
tbr, 1200k tbn                                                      Side
                     cpb: bitrate max/min/avg: 8000000/0/0 buffer size:
1835008 vbv_delay: N/A

I was dumb I selected pal 4:3 instead of pal 16:9 in dvd master ....

So, may be this is bug (o-feature) in mediainfo?

Anyway, those parameters can be changed if you click on wrench icon on
video (mpeg) stream in second-stage window where batch files already set up.
