Trying to get the flash bands out of a large amount of live event footage using Clip Browser 2.6. Looking around I see that Sony hasn't released instructions for it, in keeping with their usual weird way of doing things. I tried processing a 16GB card's worth and after many hours of the software running it told me 12 were found but only one corrected. What's up with that?
I did Flash Band>Detect and Correct>All Range
Anyone know how to get this to work?
It only seems to work with interlace material and the detection can be a bit hit and miss. You should be aware of the setting in CB preferences to change where the corrected copies of the clips are stored, otherwise you won't find your corrected clips.
First to automatically detect and correct select a clip then go to "File" "Flash Band" "Detect and Correct" If you open a clip in the Preview window and under the flash band tab click "load" any detected flash band information will be displayed. If there are un detected bands you can scroll through the clip and use the "Add" button to mark them. Check the "preview" box to see a preview of the correction. Then click "save" to save your markers. Finally go to "File" "Flash Band" "Correct" to generate a new clip with and flash banding corrected. To see the finished results remember to open the new corrected clip and not the original uncorrected clip.
Thanks Alister, what does it save the new clip as? I have it set to save in the same place as the original.
Also, when marking banding manually, which frame do you tag since the banding can span several?
