Wondering if anyone can duplicate what I'm seeing. In FCP7, a Prores 422 clip with Looks 2 applied adds a scanline, aliasing, fields artifact on the footage. Over in Premiere Pro 5.5, I'm not getting any issues at all. This happened on both my 2010 MacPro tower and my 2011 Macbook Pro.

Here are screen grabs:

Whats weird is that this does not happen in Premiere at all.

Let me know if you see similar results.

Thanks

I've replicated this problem on a number of systems now - all running FCP 7.0.3 and OSX 10.6.7.

The problem disappears if I uninstall looks 2 and install Looks 1. Same color/looks applied in timeline are maintained, if anyone wants to use this as a workaround.

Do Red Giant have any history of replying to posts here? I plan to report directly to them today.

I can report the same as everyone else with the same system, FCP 7.03, OS X 10.6.8 and Look 2. I'm going to look at applying the look to the footage in Premiere Pro instead, but a fix would be useful ...

Well, I suppose it's "good news" to find out I'm not alone and twisting in the wind on this one. "I thought it was just me," thoughts were running through my head. I'm running a system exactly like one of those outlined earlier in this message thread.

I'm getting this aliasing only part of the time in the same clip. I first noticed it while doing a straight "talking head" piece. The talent wears glasses and the rims would pixelate like crazy and then just "clear up" for a while until he moved a certain way.

Sure would be nice to have this solved and not have to reinstall 1.x

Here are a couple of screen captures that exhibit what I'm seeing on my end. The "jaggies" are very pronounced when a lower third is on the screen or right after I come out of a b-roll shot. It lasts a few seconds, then goes away (see lower image). The jaggies happen regardless of there being a lower third or cut-away shot. And it's always for just a few seconds, then clears up. Seems like some kind of bug in Looks 2, if the comments are any indication. Someone... anyone... help?!

Today I went to the Red Giant Software site and use the "online chat" feature they have to discuss this problem with one of their reps. I was the first in line for the chat and a representative (Grace) answered promptly.

I then asked if she could follow a link I would send to the chat. She said 'yes' and I sent her to my comment above that contains the two images. She recognized the problem immediately: "This is an issue with Looks 2 that we are working on right now." So, that's good news, they are aware of the problem and are working on a fix.

Next, she sent me a workaround (I haven't tried it yet). Below are the steps to take, followed by a series of questions. Answering those questions and sending to "support@redgiantsoftware.com" will contribute to getting a complete fix done. Up to you.

Here you go, direct from Red Giant Software support:

Here is the workaround to try:

1) In Final Cut go to: Sequence>Settings>General tab

2) Change the Field Dominance setting from Upper to None

3) Exit the Sequence Settings menu.

4) The interlacing should now be removed.


Please answer the questions below:

1. How much vram is on your video card?

2. Is your footage progressive or interlaced?

3. What is the resolution of your project?

4. What bit depth are you rendering in?

5. How many monitors are connected to system?

6. Do you have a Matrox, AJA or Blackmagic card connected to system?

7. Was product installed as an Admin or User log in?

8. Is product being used as an Admin or User log in?

9. Are there any other video filters applied? (Besides product in question)

10. Please send two screen shots of the issue. One of before to apply Looks and one of after you apply Looks.

Wow... I´ve spent a week trying to understand what was going wrong with my footage and then I found this. I did a google search and it's difficult to get to this thread!. I thought it had to do with my conversion to Prores since I dont use Prores HQ but it doesnt.

GOOD! At last a solution!!! it worked fine for me, and I hope changing the field dominance to none doesnt change anything else.

Does anyone know if the field dominance affects to other parameters/filters/quality/rendering/outputting?????



Thanks to all folks.
