Shaky Playback on TV screen

I used Visionlab to create a region effect for some footage to be used in a Sony Vegas project and when I watched my full Vegas-edited movie on a TV screen I noticed the chunks featuring the Visionlab effects had some kind of flicker during the playback. How can I fix this?
I exported the footage from Visionlab in AVI uncompressed format, because I wanted to avoid multiple compression and image quality loss.
Do you think it would be better to render it in a compressed format (DV, Microsoft Video, etc.)? Thank you

The flicker sounds like deinterlacing, check your project settings when importing into as well as out of Visionlab, make sure they match your original footage. This is just a guess though... could you post a screen shot of the problem clip?

No I can't because the problem appears only on the TV screen not on the PC. However a still shot wouldn't help, because the problem is related to the image in motion. Maybe 'flicker' isn't the right term. What I really mean is that the motion on the TV screen isn't smooth. Do you think interlacing may help?

Are you watching it on the TV screen by connecting your computer to the TV, or do you mean that you created a DVD using Vegas/DVD Architect and are watching that on the TV?

I created an MPEG2 video in Vegas Pro and then made a DVD out of it using DVD-Lab Pro.

Did you try spydurhank's suggestion about deinterlacing and checking your project settings?

I'd say, with 99% certainty, that it's an interlacing issue...I've had the same problem with layers in the past. As spydurhank said, check that everything matches up (vlab footage, vegas footage and vegas project settings). From what you've described, it sounds like the vlab footage is the one that's interlaced differently from the rest of the project...
hope that helps

I've seen similar results when I accidently reversed the interlace order (odd first/even first)
