I compressed a XDCAM EX 1080/60i .mov file sent over from FCP and some of the clips have flashing red sections that totally hides the video. What could be causing this? The file is fine before compressing.

I'm getting the same issues with Media Encoder CC. My workflow is AMA SxS card (footage is in XDCAM HD 1080/50i) into Avid Media Composer 6, edit, and export as XDCAM HD 1080/50i mxf file into a watch folder that Media Encoder picks up and converts to SD mpeg2 (dont ask, its the only way the TV stations want it) that file is then ftp'd using Media Encoder. It used to work fine with Media Encoder CS6, but since I upgraded it keeps giving me red frames (cant read frame errors) usually just before or after there is a cut in the footage. I've resorted to transcoding the footage in Avid to DNxHD 120 after editing and that seems to resolve the issue, but it's just an extra step that adds loads of time to my workflow.
