I have some home videos on old Sony Mini-DV tapes that I recently imported into iMovie 11 using the iLink (FireWire) interface. I also have a new Sony NEX 6 camera, which gets raves for its video quality, and videos are automatically imported into Aperture 3 when I connect my camera. In both cases, the imported videos (not the originals) contain horizontal "jaggie" artifacts that I assume are due to interlacing. I experienced this problem when using HandBrake to create MP4 files from ripped DVDs and VHS tapes. I did some research, and enabling a variable comb-filter setting in HandBrake solved the problem. How do I prevent or eliminate the "jaggies" in my iMovie and Aperture video captures? Or do they only go away after I convert the videos to MP4 files with HandBrake?
