Horizontal lines


I just started to use Hitfilm 4 express 2017 as a beginner. When I try to edit my footage, horizontal lines come up whenever there is movement. How can I fix this? Or does my camera cause this? (it's a Panasonic lumix  dmc-fz200)

Thank you very much!

    Try adding a "Deinterlace" filter to a clip and do a test render. If that fixes it, then check your camera's video settings. You want to be in a mode with "p" at the end, not "i" as in "1080p" not "1080i."

    That's probably the issue. 

    EDIT: I looked up your camera. Basically any frame rate other than 23.98 it shoots is interlaced. Hitfilm doesn't output interlaced video, so, you have three choices:

    1) New camera 

    2) Add Deinterlace to every clip you load from that camera. 

    3) Transcode your footage to a progressive format before import into Hitfilm. 

    Here's a video covering many options for 3.
