Slice X, FCP X & HD XAVC material

Hi All.

I'm using SliceX with Mocha to stick a pixellation mask over someones face when they say a word (not a rude word - its a guess the word competition with an accompanying audio beep). Needless to say there's a run in before and after it. So the person says "I've no idea what [beep] means but it could be".

So I've bladed the clip, applied the filter etc and all works as expected - except (and its a big one!) The filter clip appears to a) shrink and b) drop in luminance - its really visible when I cut back to the untreated footage. I've got round a) by zooming in by 100.1% but any ideas why its doing this.

2012 non retina Macbook Pro, OS X 10.8.5 w/8GB ram FCP 10.0.9 and material is Sony F55 XAVC 1920 x 1080 coming of a 4TB G RAID.

Interesting - just looked on a waveform and the filter is definitely clamping the material (which is er a bit over 100%!)

Hello,

I can confirm there's a slight shrinking. Regarding color clamping please try to switch off clamping. You can find the related control when you click on the "Globals" button in the canvas area at the bottom.

Regards, Eberhard

That's not good! Changing the clamping didn't work and as for the shrinkage... why???
