Stills jittering and flashing after adding the ken burns effect
on Mar 11, 2011 at 11:19:57 pm

Hi

I've tried looking this up and followed all the instructions other people have suggested but I still can't get a crisp, smooth pan with my stills in FCP7. I'm using key frames to mark where I want it to start and finish so it zooms in a little and pans slightly but whatever I try they still look jittery and flickery, here is what I have tried already...

Changing the pixel size on the pictures in photoshop to 1800 x 1350 (around 2.5 times the sequence settings)

Using de-flicker

Using de-interlace even though I've since found out that was wrong anyway

Hooking up my Sony V1E camera to the mac via a firewire and hooking the camera to an external TV monitor and watching it on there and it's still a bit jerky and flickery

Making sure all the render options are ticked (including 'full')

I want my pictures to stay super crisp and clear as they were shot but I want to zoom in and make them move and pan, what am I dong wrong?

Thanks
Mich

Just found this amazing article which I think answers the question, I'm going to scale the image to 1920 x 1140 tomorrow instead of 1800 x 1350 which is for NTSC and see if that helps :-)

If your still images are really sharp then a slight Gaussian blur plugin can help on jittery movement. Judgment should be based on proper external monitoring via an I/O card.
