I'm trying to convert some old 8mm home movies to DVD. To do this I project the 8mm films onto a telecine screen and capture them with my Sony PAL (not NTSC) camcorder. (Yes, I know there's a potential frames-per-second conflict issue here that can cause that annoying "flickering" effect in the capture, but by tweaking the fps speed of the projector it is possible to eliminate the flicker.) So far so good: when I import the captured movie files from my camcorder to my Mac (in .vob format) and view them with VLC Player they look fine - no flicker, nice picture quality. However, when I import the files into iMovie 09 for editing I'm annoyed to find that "flickering" reappears. I'm guessing this has something to do with iMovie's lossy compression rate, frames rates, interlacing, or something like that. Can anyone suggestion how to get rid of the "flicker" when using iMovie 09? I'm aware of the JES Deinterlacer software but I'm not sure what settings I should use in my case.
