Interlace / image stripes problem?
I just bought my first ever camcorder and it was obviously the HV20 and I am pretty happy with it.
Anyway, problems soon arrived. I'm capturing my footage with HDVSplit, a program you guys surely know of. I tried using PPro CS3, my NLE of choice, but for some unknown reason, it does not have HDV presets nor it allows for .m2t files import.
Well, the problem is, when viewing the .m2t files (with VLC player) some odd thing happens. When I'm panning or just moving, the footage goes all "stripey"! I've read in these forums that this is an interlace thing, and I guess, because when capturing I had the camera hooked up to a CRT TV and it showed the footage flawlessly (despite annoying dropouts... but that's another problem). Also, the cameras LCD also shows the video flawlessly.
Curiously enough, this just happens with VLC (that I know of). I renamed the m2t to wmv and watched it with Media Player Classic and it showed no stripeness at all, altough Media Player Classic had a much harder time rendering the video that VLC (slowdowns, my PC isn't that very good).
Well, my question is, should I worry? The problem musn't be the camera, nor the footage, nor the capture program. I'm assuming it's the media player (VLC in this case), but it's odd nonetheless. I just want to make sure this doesn't ruin my future footage. I'm going to try to reinstall Premiere and see if I can import the m2t there for edit. I just hope there's not striping.
Thanks guys, and sorry for the long text!

This is perfectly normal. Just right-clcik the VLC screen, select the deinterlace option, and change it to one of the settings there. No more stripes!

Thank you so much!
Now to discover why PPro CS3 doesn't have the HDV presets and why it doesn't import .m2t's...
