Moire or aliasing?

Watch the tree branches. Would you say this is moire or aliasing issues from scaling down 4.6k footage to hd? And what would be the best way to avoid this?

I think the best way to avoid moire & aliasing is by using cameras with optical anti aliasing filters. I´ve no glue about post-production solvings but im sure there are some ways which can reduce this a bit - like chroma noise reductions?… however you´ll lose detail resolution.
Most professional digital cine cameras by arri, red & sony have internal olpf filters to solve that issue.
Since you said 4.6k - i guess you´re using a Blackmagic Ursa camera right?
They don´t have an internal lowpass Filter. But there are good 3rd party options for it which are worth their money (especially if you like to shoot in portugal with all the beautiful pavings, tiles & details ;-) ): http://www.mosaiceng...f/bm/umpro.html

I'm wondering if a olpf would prevent it from happening again and what is the tradeoff regarding overall sharpness...
