HELP!! 50hz Flicker

I recently shot about 10 hours worth of footage in Israel. Little did I know that the 50hz flourescent lighting would cause an annoying flicker throughout all my footage. This is a serious project, but I have a tight budget.

It was reccomended that I use the color stabalizer filter in AE, but that doesn't do too much to aleviate the issue. Has anyone encoutnered this problem before and found an economical way to fix it?

Cheap fluorescent lighting does that (it's the ballast). That's why film-makers have to be careful when buying them. I have not treated this problem before, but my first thought would be to use an avisynth plug-in like this or that (related discussion). The best part: it's free.

Thanks!

That VirtualDub filter did the trick!

The only thing is, is there an easy way to output vdub footage to DV-AVI so I can edit it in premiere without having to seperately encode it?

Frameserving might work, but I would be inclined to simply render the whole thing to huffYUV or a similar lossless codec.
