That's interlacing. And you may see it when you're working on your computer (which doesn't create its frames through interlacing, as TV does) but you shouldn't see it in your final output.
Can you confirm that you're capturing from that HV30 directly into Premiere Elements over a FireWire connection?
Yes Im capturing over firewire.
Thanks Steve for your Helpful Reply!!!
You say you're still seeing the interlacing when you upload it to Vimeo? What format are you outputting for this upload?
I just uploaded a video there. It was a 70mb mpeg file. hmm the video doesn't look HD at all plus it has the interlacing in there. I'm pretty new to Video Editing so not sure what is going on here.
If you loaded your video to Vimeo as an MPEG (or an AVI) you've loaded it as an interlaced format -- which may be why you're still seeing the lines.
Try uploading it as a WMV or Quicktime file. These are computer-based formats and are de-interlaced as they're created.
Thanks for you help on this!!! Ok that makes sense. So I converted to a WMV preset HD 1080i 30.
I uploaded the video here and it is still interlaced.
I'm starting to shoot more video and this is getting perplexing. Could it be anything else?
Thanks again for all your help!
Your issue is you used the HD 1080i preset.... the "i" is for interlaced. Try using the HD 720p preset.... the "p" is for progressive, so not interlaced.
