I'm having a bit of trouble when it comes to graphic elements/text strobing or flickering while being played back from a DVD player on a smallish CRT television. It's particularly strange because so far it is only happening with this one particular setup (it's been tested on various PCs, a 32" LCD television, and various playback devices such as standard DVD players and an Archos multimedia device).
Causing further confusion, when played back using the Archos on the same CRT TV that was strobing, the strobing is gone, it just seems to be a combination of the DVD player and the CRT.
Granted, CRT is a dying technology, but this DVD is a training series that will likely be played on similar combinations of DVD player/CRT monitor in schools so we really want to get this right.
Thanks for the input. I completely agree, but it's the project manager who has been pushing for a solution, I'm currently satisfied with the outcome regardless of the particular DVD Player and CRT display issue.
Regardless, what exactly would cause graphics to strobe but not the rest of the image? I've read about field order and such (again, I'm working in PAL) but the rest of the image is fine. I've tried setting the field option in Premiere to "remove flicker" for the specific elements, as well as scaling them up in size (they do have some fine detail), all to no avail.
I'd like to be absolutely sure there is nothing that can be done.
