I've come across a strange issue with rendering effects and logos in an HDV sequence, and hope someone else has come across this before.
I'm editing in HDV 1080p23.98 and looking to add a lower-third logo on top of the footage. The problem I'm running into is that when I add the logo and render it for playback, the part with the logo added plays at double speed.
An example - I have a 10 second clip on the first track and add a 1 second logo on top of that for the first second. After I render, the first second plays at double speed and cuts away half of the footage (screen black), and the remaining 9 seconds play normally.
I've tried transcoding to Pro Res and XDCam, but with the same result.
My setup & equipment:
HDV captured from Sony Z5U
FCP 6.0.5 - HDV 1080p23.98 sequence
Mac PPC G5 1.8 Dual Core 2.5GB RAM
Any help, ideas, or suggestions would be greatly appreciated!
