FCP6 blurring/ghosting in my sports sequences
on Nov 8, 2009 at 1:19:28 am

Hi guys

For some bizarre reason I can't figure out yet, my rapid-edits sports sequences blur/ghost from frame to frame (like a bad frame blending) when I preview the sequence on my Dell monitor from my FCP Canvas. Also, when I choose to export to a Quicktime file using current settings, the blurring/ghosting is preserved once I view the burned DVD.

However, if I choose to select Pro Res 422 as my choice of Quicktime export file instead of keeping current settings, the ghosting seems to go away upon viewing the eventual burned DVD.

My sequence is in a standard Apple ProRes 422 Timeline. Field Dominance Upper. 25fps. HD(1440x1080)

I filmed on a PAL Canon XHA1 50i and captured this as standard Pro Res 422.

I checked the item properties of the sports clips and they match the timeline settings.

I have a couple of Motion clips elsewhere in the sequence which have frame size 1920 x 1080, Field Dominance None - could that cause a problem?

Is there a danger of losing any picture quality by choosing to export to a ProRes 422 1440x1080 Quicktime file rather than choosing to export using 'current settings'?

Warm regards

Peter

I'd recapture the footage using ProRes HQ. Fast movement is exactly what it was made for.

Sounds good Jerry thanks.

Any idea why the footage doesn't blur though if I export it as standard Pro Res 422 and burn onto DVD instead of using 'Current Settings'? Is it maybe just a quirk of standard ProRes 422?

Warm regards

Not sure why, however there's no doubt the footage will look better all round using the capture setting as HQ... it's a higher bit rate and I've been told by the good folks at Apple that it was made for fast motion.
