Export Mystery
on Sep 23, 2010 at 6:15:06 pm

I have the following weird thing happening on my FCP system:

As I finish my edit and export to quicktime, the quicktime movie exported scales down a few percent just before almost every cut.

When I select the "recompress frames" option, it solves the problem, but takes a long time export.


My footage was shot on a canon 550d and transcoded to prores 422. I also used Apple Color to grade the sequence.

My sequence setting are:



Has anyone ever had the same problem? I wonder what causes this.

What settings are you using when you select the QT movie export exactly?

I'm using the "current settings", in other words my timeline settings, of which I post a picture in my previous thread.

Also I select the 'make movie self contained'.


UPDATE: When I play the same file in an older version of quicktime, so not quicktime X, the problem disappears as well!

You think it's the Quicktime X app messing it up?

Quicktime X is not ready for primetime. It is the last thing to be relied upon. STill a beta app, if not ALPHA.

Yeah I guess you're right! Will not use it again anymore. Thanks.

I've seen that intermittently in Quicktime X. You aren't doing anything wrong.

You might try messing with the aperture settings in Quicktime Player 7.x. I haven't had the time or patience, but it might solve it.

is your timeline fully rendered before exporting? that includes checking the 'full' options under the sequence > render all menu and sequence > render selection menus.

Jeremy,

I don't mean to speak for Pepijn, but I've seen it on fully rendered ProRes timelines exported as self contained Quicktimes (same as source). Only occurs in the Quicktime X player, not the Quicktime 7.x player. Its intermittent and difficult to diagnose.

Yep, John is right. I did fully render the timeline. It plays very well in quicktime 7. Quicktime X is the issue here. Bad product!

Well that sucks. I guess that's why I subconsciously don't use QTX. ;)

Have a look again to the sequence setting.
You sequence has Upper First field order.
I guess that, being your stuff Progressive. its should be NONE.

Ya know? I don't use it either because it's not nearly as full featured as QT 7 pro...

And despite the incomplete features, to be really honest, the interface is "too clean". The damn overlays pop up and cover the video all the time. I want to see the video, not the whizbang overlay. It also creates an optical allusion when the overlay appears and disappears as the aspect ratio looks like it's changing, when it's not. It's distracting.
