Essentially the key to interlacing issues is realizing that they aren't a bad thing; they are a fundamental part of how video works, which is what the article was trying to explain. They are supposed to be there.

When the footage is displayed on a television, the mice teeth on the edges of moving objects won't appear. When the project is completed, it will need to be de-interlaced for viewing on computer screens. De-interlacing throws out half the resolution of your footage though, so you should wait until the last step to de-interlace the footage, as it will significantly affect the quality.

If you change the scale of the footage at any point, though, you need to de-interlace the footage first. Resizing it will make it so you cannot remove the interlacing ever, and it won't display correctly on any screen.

For simple users set the project settings as progressive. This deinterlace your footage when you export out of effectslab I belive.

The lines aren't a problem, they are interlacing. They should be there. I realize that doesn't sound right, but it is true. When the footage is played on a television, the lines won't be visible. Once your project is complete, it should be de-interlaced if you intend to upload it or view it otherwise on a computer monitor. This is explained in detail, with images, in the article that was originally linked. Also www.100fps.com has some good info.

Also, you have provided no additional info about what the problem is after the help you have already gotten. Some info about the format of your footage, the project settings you have tried, what didn't work, or anything of that sort would prove helpful in finding a solution.

If it plays at the wrong speed, whether you are talking about within the project or rendered footage makes a big difference. If its the rendered footage, it almost certainly confirms that you have used the incorrect project settings. This article deals with that specific problem.
