Thread: wavy lines when camera pans

    Default wavy lines when camera pans

    Hi I've been editing video for a long time now, but every now and then I run into a problem where the video I'm editing distorts when the camera pans across a scene. It happens most when I'm using Premiere, but I've also had it happen while using Movie Maker. The distortion looks like a bunch of horizontal lines on the edge of people and objects. I notice this happens mostly when trying to use video files from a hard drive camcorder.

    Any suggestions?

    sounds like interlacing artifacts. you see it on a computer but when you play it on a television you shouldn't notice it.

    Deinterlacing - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
    Super Cheap - Canon ZR900, Aiptek A-HD, Premiere Pro CS4, Avidemux, VirtualDub, Audacity, GIMP

    Default solution

    Thanks, after I posted the question I remembered hearing about interlaced video. I found out how to remove it in Adobe Premiere CS3. Select Clip/Video Options/Field Options/ the select "always deinterlace".
