Sometimes when I use the footage from my cameras in the same timeline, the footage from the EX1 appears to be strobing. It doesn't always do it, but it happens 75% of the time. Both are filming using the same settings, normally 1080P, but not in HQ mode. In my FCP timeline, I've tried setting the compressor to PreRez, HDV and various other settings, and there's no change. Any ideas?

Strobing is a vague term- can you be more specific? Strobing during a pan, literally flashing frames, etc?

Tough to describe. The footage is jerky, particularly during movement like jib/dolly or handheld movements, but it can even look a little uneven when locked down, although it's tougher to notice it.

It sounds for all the world like the symptoms of field order mismatch. Find an instance of when this is happening and then post back with the clip properties reported by FCP for the flickering footage, plus the sequence properties for the sequence where you are seeing it.

For clip properties, select the flickering clip in the timeline and choose Cmd-9
For sequence properties, select the timeline window and choose Cmd-0 <-- that's a zero by the way :-)

Also please select one of the clips in the same sequence that is not displaying this flicker, and post back with thart clip's properties too.


Best
Andy
