What causes clip to flutter?
on Sep 6, 2015 at 3:21:19 am

It's rare but a couple of times, after I captured video footage and edited it on the timeline, certain clips flutter, pulse etc. It's not on the original footage but only after I imported.

Of course I can just recapture the original footage but does anyone know what causes certain clips to flutter?

It might help if you explain how you are "capturing" your video because these days people rarely have to "capture" video because all modern cameras use solid state memory cards to record video into files.

I have the older tape based camcorder so I don't have the card.

I hook up a fire wire card and capture the footage into my computer that way.

The flutter is not a big issue, does not happen much.

One clip had it, but without doing anything, the flutter stopped.

There is one other clip that has the flutter.

I'm just going to recapture it. The flutter is not on the original footage.

I would just recapture the part that is causing problems. One thing to make sure is that the heads on your camcorder are clean. Use a cleaning tape (do not clean with alcohol or anything). It's also important to keep your hard drive defragmented so that it can capture easily in real-time.

Yes - I'll recapture just the one portion of the tape that has the segment of a clip that flutters so as to save space on hard drive.

Yes - I try to keep my computer tuned up. It defragments itself automatically but I do know that is an important thing,

Yes on my older computer - Yup - had to defragment it manually, i.e. start defrag manually

Yes - I have not cleaned the heads in a while. I did study up on cleaning the heads before and knew not to use alcohol, (but it's good you said that anyways as you never know what someone might know) - just the cleaner tape.

I dropped my camcorder - hmm it prob has been a year since that happened, and I sent it into Canon for repair and the replaced the heads but I am prob due to clean the heads now that you mention it.

Before when I read about cleaning the heads it was indicated to do it sparingly as if you do it too much it can ruin the heads?

I think they said to maybe just run the cleaning tape once per year and only for - mmm I think they said to run it for only 10 seconds otherwise the heads can be ruined?

Does that sound right?

Ok I can re-read the stuff and double check.

Lol - I'm going to list you in the credits when I finish my project unless you object! You've been so totally helpful coach! I'm prob about 8o% done.

Yes, you don't need to run it for long. The head cleaning tapes usually come with instructions so just follow what it says.
