Chances are, if the file was interlaced, lots of bits were being
wasted encoding the high frequency vertical 'noise' resulting from
merging two fields that don't fit together without deinterlacing them.
Thus, you don't need nearly as many bits to get the same quality after
deinterlacing. On the other hand, it probably should be a bit bigger
than half-size. :) Looks like you've got things fixed since posting
your initial question anyway.
