I am looking at the original media backup of a P2 card in FCP L+T and seeing weird pixellations:
The pixellations occur for one or two frames every 16 frames, 5 times in a row, then it takes a break for 32 frames, then it starts again.
I'm probably not explaining this well but basically it seems like a regular pattern.
Has anyone seen this before?
The original footage was shot with the DVCProHD 1080i60 codec, in 1080p24 format, on a HPX-3700G camera.
I am wondering if somehow the files could be corrupted to cause this or if it was possibly a recording error?
The pixellations remind me of tape cameras with dirty internals...
Well, this is a tapeless with dirty internals. The connectors on the card or the camera have dust and/or dirt in them. You need to clean them out...compressed air will help. But yeah, that's been recorded onto the card...meaning it's there to stay.
