So I have a Sony DCR-HC32 camera and have imported a small clip into FCPX.  Once I export the file to a .MOV  (using Pro Res 422), any motion in the video looks horrible.  When there is motion it looks like a bunch of lines are visible in the video.  Does anyone know why this is happening and if I need to change settings to correct?

    Sounds like you're seeing interlacing, which is normal when viewing DV media on a computer.

    I am a bit confused by that answer Tom.  I have imported DV files, combined them and exported the movie as either a .MOV, .MP4, or .AVI before with no issues, not sure why I am experiencing it now. My goal isn't to have these exported to DVD, but rather to watch them on my computer/tv and be able to backup them up.  So if this is normal, then how am I ever able to watch DV media converted to .MOV etc?

    If the media is for computer display export it using one of the web or Apple device presets. You could also use Compressor or MPEG Streamclip or JES Deinterlacer, but a simple export function designed for computer display might be easiest.
