Re: Video problems with NEX7 - smearing/jagged edges during panning??

What you're seeing is called "combing", and it's an evil feature of interlaced video. Avoid interlaced video like the plague.

Some notes:

1. iMovie will delinterlace the output if you state that the output should be a certain format (progressive or "p"). One reasonable choice would be 25p. You can get a higher quality deinterlacer by first running your movie through HandBrake before loading it into iMovie.

2. If you want to get 50p video into iMovie, read these two threads:
