Some Core Melt transitions playback as black when rendered
on Sep 23, 2010 at 10:47:19 pm

I'm working with a ProRes 422 HQ 960x720 sequence, consisting only of stills of various sizes (from 576x383 to 4240x2848). When I render the effects in my sequence, some of the Core Melt transitions render as black, while others play back fine. Specifically, Cellular Wipe and Mirror Flipper render as black, while Slice Across plays back fine when rendered.

Has anyone else had this problem? Is there a workaround or solution? Please advise.

Oh, and I'm running Final Cut Pro 7.0.2 on OS 10.5.8.

Please advise, thanks.

Hello, what's your graphics card, and does the problem occur only when rendering not during preview?
Do you render at high precision? If so, please try rendering at 8 bit.
4240 image width might be too big, please try downscaling those big images.
If the problem persists, can you please take a look at the log file for related error messages?
You find the log file when you open the Console app from the utility apps folder. Then choose "All Messages" and check if there are errors reported during rendering.

Regards, Eberhard

My rendering was already set to 8 bit, but I switched "Motion Filtering Quality" from Normal to Best and that seems to have solved the problem.

Thanks for your reply. :)
