I am really suffering. I´m trying to capture video from a mini dv (in a JVC GR-DVM70 cam) and all the video glitches in final cut pro. The material came from rank in the post-production lab (I originally filmed in super16mm with an arri cam). Could these be an error from the post-production studio or am I setting final cut in the wrong way?
Has anyone had the same problem?
Any help is greatly appreciated.
(I leave you a still of the glitched video)
That looks like dirty heads to me. If you have a cleaning tape run it for 10 secs or so. But it could have been a dirty record head at the lab. If the pattern always is the same, and other tapes play back clear, this might be the case.
You can also try shuttling to break loose any grime.
