GL2 Wavy Lines

I am shooting witha GL2 in movie mode. After capturing my video into Premiere Pro, I notice wavy lines against straight, white edges (venetian blinds, referees striped shirt, white lines in a parking lot. Has anyone else experienced this and is there anything I can do to get rid of it?

When you say "Movie Mode" which one Frame or Normal? My manual states and suggests that when "Frame" is selected the following is written - "Since the frame rate is close to that of a movie, this mode can be used to create "cinematic-like appearance". So when you say "Movie Mode" is it this "Frame" option? Yes? Ok, well this was Canon's "getting close" to what they say a "cinematic-like appearance". Notice their quotes and the -like. What does this imply to you? Anyways, if you have the Frame option this is to allow you to "see" separate "Frames" without the effect of the interlace of "Normal". Being this pedantic is making me understand what you have at present - yeah?

Ok, I'll have a stab at this: I don't have PP and I never use the Frame option. But I would kinda guess that either you have PP setup for progressive and you have interlace video OR PP is setup for Interlace and you have Canon's Frame and its version non-interlaced. Notice I steered away from actually saying "progressive"?

Do you get the same when playing directly OUT to a TV? Maybe you have a combination/selection of options that have so slowed down the frame rate and in conjunction with a Frame or Normal setting that straight lines aren't being captured correctly. Let's see it ain't your Camera's recording ( a visit to Canon Garage? ) OR the way PP is setup?

Let the Games Begin!

Grazie

As noted above, computer monitors can sometime show strange visual artifacts that are not there when viewed on a normal video monitor at normal frme rate.

Try view the image on a TV.
