Stuttering Timeline Playback
on Jun 13, 2011 at 2:05:09 pm

Playback in my timeline is all of the sudden stuttering/jittery. Especially noticeable on dolly shots or pans. I am working in ProRes LT. I have trashed prefs...restarted...no joy - the problem persists. When I output to a QT movie the footage is fine...no stutter.

For the record this is canon 7D footage transferred in the Canon Plug in. That may be the issue. I have MB Grinder but I never use it. I am working on a big Mac Pro with lots or memory.

Very annoying. Any ideas, kids?

Frame rate mismatch between footage & timeline?

I just dropped the clips into the timeline, got the query to match the footage and proceeded so that should not be a problem, right. Could it be an RT problem?

Sure could be. It's easy to check by messing around with the RT settings in the upper left of the timeline.

You didn't mention the Hard drive you are playing the media off of...

The hard drive is an internal project drive with a ton of space. I think I may have found the problem. I believe the timeline may have been out of whack with the clip speed. Can't remember what I had it at before but when I dumped the prefs I reset the timeline at XDCAM EX/30fps (for my main work camera.

The clips in question are 23.98 PRo Res LT.

I just checked the sequence video settings & Easy Setup and reset them for Pro Res 422...

Smoothed out.

It's alway something. When is FCP X coming???

[Mike Petty] "When is FCP X coming???"

There's a whole forum on the COW devoted to that very question:
