Horizontal Lines in Video
on Nov 27, 2009 at 5:10:33 pm

I recently purchased the Sony Z7U camera and have been filming on the compact flash card at 1080i/60i. When I import to my Mac Book Pro I use Log & Transfer and all looks good. When I play back video in HD or upload to Vimeo in HD I get these Horizontal Lines in some of the clips.

How can I avoid this mess of a video. I also get jumpy video. It's not smooth and looks sloppy.

ANy suggestions on how to fix this?

That is most likely INTERLACING. Computers don't like to play back interlaced footage. Deinterlace your clips in the sequence (throw the deinterlace filter on everything, then render.

Better still, deinterlace using Compressor so that you maintain interlaced sequences for broadcast in FCP, but make the web version deinterlaced.

Also Compressor does a nicer job of deinterlacing than the FCP filter which throws away resolution. Search the forum as the settings for this have been covered many times.
