Handbrake horizontal lines

I've ripped a few of my DVDs for use on Apple TV and have been mostly pleased with the quality. I just use the Apple TV presets. However, I tried ripping a Baby Einstein DVD (for my baby, not me ), and the resulting file has lots of horizontal "ghost" lines during playback. A still picture looks great, but with any action I see the horizontal lines.

Has anyone else seen something similar? Is there a way around this?


FOLLOW UP: Okay, I may have found the problem. Apparently, I should try selecting "deinterlace" in Handbrake. Silly me for searching for "lines" when I should have searched for "interlace". It's so obvious! :P

I didn't realize it at the time, but it happened when I loaded a Billy Joel DVD, too. And I had loaded each video one at a time! At least I know about using the queue now. It sure helps to actually read the documentation, eh?

Important: Use deinterlace when the source material is interlaced. Don't use deinterlace when the source material is _not_ interlaced, because it will only waste time and reduce the quality. Material that was made for TV is usually interlaced, material that was made for cinema usually isn't.

Use the preview button and check a few frames whether they show the typical signs of interlaced video to decide whether to use deinterlace or not.
