Flickering Highlights
on Jan 18, 2016 at 3:09:35 pm

Hey guys,

I'm editing some older footage shot on a DVX100B.

In a few shots, the highlights are mysteriously flickering. Any idea what it could be? Here's a sample:

This comes up 3-4 times in 72 minutes of content. Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated.

The only area that seemed to be flickering to my eye was the blown-out spot in the background counter area.

It seems logical to me that might be fluorescent lighting there (based on the simple fact that the under-cabinet lights in my own kitchen are flos). Is that the case? It might be simple phasing coming from the non-continuous source of the flos.

You said this happens several times. What is the setup/environment of the other instances that it happens? In that same kitchen?

Hey Todd,

Thanks for the quick reply! It's definitely not fluorescents. It reoccurs at several points--always with blown out highlights coming from the sun. I suspect it may be the autofocus on the DVX100, but I'm not sure.
