Post Editing Question - Deinterlaced Video
I have some footage that is appearing with the "interlaced lines" look when I watch it on my computer or put it into final cut. I have to deinterlace it and then render for it to look right and this takes forever ... ironically, it appears normal and plays correctly without any actions on my part if edited and played via imovie. Is there just some setting I can adjust in final cut to make it ok without having to constantly render clips every five seconds?

Thanks for the feedback if anybody knows...

Could your timeline be interpreting at the wrong frame rate?

Played around with that but it's at the correct frame rate. No idea what's causing it. I just decided to edit this one in imovie....

Coming to this late, but hopefully this will be helpful in the future - it may not be the frame rate but rather the field dominance that is wrong. In FCP it can be set to either upper or lower dominance, or progressive. If you have interlaced video, but field dominance is set to progressive, then you can end up seeing both fields at once which gives you the jagged lines. For DV footage it should be lower field dominance, HDV is upper - if I remember correctly you can just set this in the browser if you scroll over to the field dominance column. You also should check that your project settings match the current format and aren't set to progressive if you're using interlaced video.

Hey, so it was the field dominance by the way. Came back to it as a test just today and that was the issue! Thanks for that!
