Something like that cannot be fixed afterwards. The closest solution at this point is doing a vertical blur and then maybe some vertical sharpening to try and hide it a bit as just simple blending, but it is an ugly solution. Vinverse in avisynth COULD also work, but it entirely depends on whether it picks it up or not, which I am not sure at this point.
Next time make sure you properly deinterlace and/or ivtc your footage when you rip it.
PS: Don't tell me you're editing through fake avi or some solution like that. It is the source of all issues. You should just make proper lossless clips to edit from. Had you done this beforehand, you would have noticed earlier that the deinterlacing wasn't done correctly and you would have been able to easily fix it before editing, or just switching to the proper clips afterwards.

So. You made the script and those same frames were properly deinterlaced.
THEN, after hdd issues, you get that terrible combing on the previously clean frames?
I honestly am at a loss myself. Unless you're using a non frame-accurate filter to load the source, avisynth is surely deterministic, which means that the results of the same filterchain on the same footage will always be identical.
I guess this will teach you how unsafe fake avi editing ends up being. :\
As I said, if fixing from scratch is not an option, you should first try to run vinverse. Assuming you don't do ANY zoom of any amount, it will work (if it does, you might also want to give nnedi3() a try, since postprocessing the whole thing might fix it clean). If you have to zoom, it will fail, and you will have to do some vertical blurring and/or lowering the resolution, possibly by half, in order to hide it as simple blending. But restoring clean frames would be impossible in this latter case. In the former, as I said, nnedi3 or some other postprocessing filter could do.
I guess you could try to do the basic editing WITHOUT any zooms, export, nnedi3 on that and see how it comes out, and the reload and add zooms and effects to that. You're going to have to edit in bits like that if you want a better quality output at this point, but not like you can really do much anymore.
EDIT: Oh, so it's just a vegas preview fail or something and in final render it's fine? You might want to check your project settings then, maybe you accidently switched the timeline from progressive to interlaced.

That said, I'll proceed and remove the screens from the OP post, so I'll hopefully be able to forget how the source looks by the time I'll have to judge. I know it's not going to be blind judging, but I'd like to try and avoid possible influences. I hope it makes sense...
The clips will be sent either via FTP (information will be provided to the entrants on the final day of their round) or personal hosting. You will be given information to upload your video onto a server but if you wish to use your own hosting, upload to AnimeMusicVideos.org or use a file transfer site such as mediafire, you can also do so.
