Thank you all for your help.
Well, I'm quite stunned, but I suppose I shouldn't really be. As another test I just gave in and installed DVDFab, and now I'm following the Read ErMaC & AbsoluteDestiny's Friendly AMV Guides Lovingly Overhauled Largely by Zarxrax
guide and no such abnormal problems have occurred.
When I was first getting into AMV-making (know so little about it its ridiculous), I was looking for a good DVD ripper, and my dad ended up spending quite a bit on one, like $50. So I wanted to utilize that one if I could, just so I wouldn't feel like the money went to waste. But that ripper seems to be the source of these odd problems, when I look at all the options. Reading the description for 3:2 pulldown telecine, it seemed like that's what something in my computer was doing when all that "Aspect Ratio: 1:1, etc..." nonsense, and horrid picture quality was produced (and nothing I did to edit the picture really worked).
This is from the video ripped by DVDFab, with the only changes being Force Film and resizing. (There's still probably some cleaning to do but I'm just happy it came out so much better quality ^^)
