    How to fix PIXEL ASPECT RATIO?

    Level 1
      hey im getting this problem, i shot some video on miniDV on a green screen. i keyed out the footage did a precomp with all the videos in it to start trying to line it up with the background and do some camera moves. now that they're all 3d i get these weird lines across the footage i filmed, like if it was an interlacing issue or something....if anyone knows how i can fix this please help me out.
      i've put the footage in a comp using the NTSC DV preset and the NTSC D1 SQUARE PIXEL and i still get the same problem....i need to finish this video ASAP so please if anyone can help i'd really appreciate it.

          Why don't you just interpret the footage as having no fields? You can even import your footage a second time and interpret it differently, then replace it on the timeline. The 3D filtering will do a good enough job to disguise the interlacing. Indeed fields have a tendency to break upo with 3D layers due to the way they are rendered. Ideally you should de-interlace the footage first using Revision FX' FieldsKit, Magic Bullet Frames or similar tools.
