I'm sure I've done this a thousand times over. But this time I'm having issues playing back DVCPRO HD 720p50 to my exernal monitor.
I have a correct timeline setting, (editing native)
I usually set my video out for p2 to 720 50htz 8 bit and plays fine.
But I'm getting judderey playback. A kind of strobe effect. But not a field issue strobing. More like every second frame is oversize.
If I set my video out to 10bit 720p, playback is fine but image is oversized on my SD monitor (blackmagic system prefs set to downconvert on output)
If I set video out in FCP to 10bit or 8bit standard def. Playback is fine. Although it is letterboxed.
Just the 720p50 video out setting in FCP creates this violent strobing effect. But that is the correct setting for the footage playing.
