If DGIndex reports my VOB as 100.00% video, does it need to be IVTC'd still?

There's no pulldown flags, but it's an interlaced video:
Width                                    : 720 pixels
Height                                   : 480 pixels
Display aspect ratio                     : 4:3
Frame rate                               : 29.970 (30000/1001) FPS
Standard                                 : NTSC
Color space                              : YUV
Chroma subsampling                       : 4:2:0
Bit depth                                : 8 bits
Scan type                                : Interlaced
Scan order                               : Top Field First
Not sure to apply IVTC or just use QTGMC/deinterlace?

DGIndex does not report video % per se; it reports film %, which really just means how much percentage of the stream has soft 3:2 pulldown. And scan type Interlaced does not necessarily mean the content is interlaced.

The only way to be sure is to step through the fields:

Yep well stream content flags/info aint always gospel truth nor even present, sometimes best guess is all that one can do.
I sometimes post sober.

It could be film with hard pulldown, or it could be pure 60 distinguishable images per second, or it could be a mixed-framerate edited-on-tape freakshow, or it could be a Lovecraftian eldritch abomination like the early seasons of South Park. The only way to find out is to bob it.
I ask unusual questions but always give proper thanks to those who give correct and useful answers.
