I have a problem with my Phantom 3 standard video. It looks somewhat like moire interference: closely spaced horizontal lines flicker or vibrate. I often fly over the waterway behind my house where there are many docks sticking out into the water. As I fly over them so that they form horizontal lines on the video they start to look like they flicker or vibrate. Is just straight horizontal forms at a certain angle that do this. All other parts of the video are fine. Solutions?
Thanks, Phil.

I think I found the problem--or at least the solution. I wanted to edit my video on my computer rather than my cell phone; so I loaded the video into my Go Pro video editor--it was in that editor that I observed the problem. However, when I loaded the video into Windows Media Player, the problem essentially disappeared. There is something about the Go Pro video editor that doesn't like the video from the Phantom 3.

I would suggest it's more likely to do with the display size & scaling algorithms in the software, which should only affect the display you're editing in.  Once you save the video & watch it on another screen or in another program, it'll look ok.  I often see this when playing my 1080p videos back on my own 28" TV, but on larger TV's it's not a problem.

I find that reducing sharpness in the camera settings to -2 does the trick. Also an ND filter works wonders.
