I'm an editing noob going through clips filmed with an old D7 and see jagged lines everywhere. On horizons, mountain crests etc etc.. Am I right assuming this is some form of aliasing?

I'm switching cameras (tell myself it's not too late) to avoid this but I have way too much filmed for this project to throw all I've done away.

Does anyone have any tips on how to at least soften these artifacts a bit in post editing?

Thanks a lot

Right click on a clip in the sequence, select Field Options...
Then select Always Deinterlace
See if that helps.

If it is an interlacing problem then you can do a batch of clips at once in a Bin.
Select the clips you want to deinterlace
Right click and select Modify > Interpret Footage...
In the pop up box under Field Order select Conform to:
Select No Fields (Progressive Scan)

Thanks a lot for your suggestion!

I tried this on a couple of clips and nothing happened.
Since the problem is there even before importing them to premiere, the problem might be something else?

Make sure the sequence setting matches the footage.
If its interlaced footage make the timeline interlaced.

How do I know if the footage is interlaced?

I assumed these are dslr-artifacts (like aliasing, moire etc)
