HDR footage causes green flashes in Premiere Pro
on Oct 10, 2017 at 7:48:55 am

Hi - I've just shot my first film using Sony FS5's new HDR picture profile. It looks amazing, but when I import it into PP I get green interlaced flashes. Adobe says I have to reencode all my footage through Hand Break as the .mxf isn't supported. I find this really unhelpful because I have used the same .mxf for a couple of years and I have experienced no problems. Also, if I open the same footage in AE there is no flashes. Any ideas??

Hi,
there have been similar reports. Make sure you have the very latest Sony Firmware for the FS5.

When they say ".mxf isn't supported" what they meant was that the content from that camera isn't supported. Mxf is just a container for some other format and it (mxf) has been supported by PPro for years.

DaVinci Resolve is reported to handle the HLG from that camera.

If you post a small clip and related files on dropbox (or similar) I will have a look at it.

Problems were reported in early summer and everyone hoped/assumed that Sony and Adobe were working on a fix between them.

Hi Mark

Thanks - here is a link...

This is also a link to what it looks like on my PP.

Be interested to know if you also see the flashes on it!!

All other footage plays beautifully. I'm using the most current FS5 firmware and also PP release.

Thanks again
Andy

Andy,
thanks for the additional information - most appreciated.

I get the same as you:


So the problem is not what I thought it was.

What I think it is, lack of support from Adobe for this format:
AVC Long GOP High 4:2:2 Profile 10-bit Unconstrained Coding

The same symptoms have been reported on the PXW-X70, FS7 and FS5. going back a couple of years. So I think that is a Sony innovation that not all vendors have fully implemented yet.
As Adobe support said, you can Transcode around this, using Handbrake, or DaVinci Resolve.

When Adobe support said that this was not supported, did they add any more detail? it will probably be some part of the format.

Wow! This is good to hear its not my system - thank you so much for looking at this and your wisdom. They just said MXF is not supported - which it is because I've used it for years.

Time to start pestering Adobe and Sony on this one!

thanks again
Andy

I've now got DaVince Resolve - which means it plays perfectly through that. So I just send the XML to that from PP and export it from DaVince. Work Around, but it works!!

Hi, I checked. The team knows about the issue and is working on a fix to be delivered in an upcoming version of Premiere Pro. Soon! Thx, ^KM

Great news

Yep - I upgraded last night and checked it out and all sorted. This makes me happy knowing that we can. Is continue shooting in HDR and edit with confidence.
