You most likely have your framerate or interlacing settings set incorrectly. Does this problem occur while viewing the movie in EffectsLab or when its exported?

Sorry, but rogolo asked an "A" or "B" question, and you replied "yes." Let's try again: does the problem occur (A)while viewing the movie in EffectsLab, or (B)when its exported?

Most likely you have the scan rate wrong, as rogolo mentioned. What are the project settings you used?

Right, thanks for the additional info. 640x480 isn't a standard DV size; what camera did you use to record this? Are you sure the footage is progressive? Have you tried using the interlaced settings?

Do you happen to know what codec the footage is in?

I Don't Know What Progressive means or intelaced.
And i'm affraid i don't know what codec it is because it's just my camara and i don't change the codec by converting it or any thing. It does not haveany thing to do with DV

The documentation for your camera should give specs for the video format. Again, what camera are you using to record with?

640 x 480 is a standard size from pre-dv video, so I'm guessing you either are using an older model camera, or you are shooting video with a still-image digital camera.

Sorry I didn't get back to this sooner. Can you give a more detailed description of the original issue, if it isn't resolved yet?
