Hi Guys

I have some footage that I've captured on to AE, all of which I used a tripod to shoot. The stills and backgrounds are fine but anything moving has horizontal lines around the edges, is there anyway I can elimate the lines?

Sounds like you may be referring to the jagged edges that are normal with interlaced footage ... check AE's interpret footage settings to make sure the footage has been interpreted correctly (i.e., interlaced or non-interlaced, etc.). You can de-interlace the fooatge if needed depending on what you want your output to be, but if it is supposed to be interlaced, it will look fine on a TV so de-interlacing may not be necessary or appropriate.

To add to what Dave said:

You should be separating fields when you import interlaced footage.
