This is a truly weird problem, and in the meantime I have a way to output the files for delivery, but I just wanted to throw this out there and see if anyone has run across this before:
- 30 minute project, ProRes422.
- The 30-minute sequence is made up of 7 sequences, separated by 30second spots. All of the 7 sequences and the spots are exactly the same format/settings.
- All footage was transcoded from XDCAM 422 to ProRes422 before the sequences were built.
ONLY when rendering out the full 30 minute sequence, the exported movie has spikes in the scoring. The music literally jumps 12dB for 5-15 frames, then goes back to normal. I have gone through all of the tracks, sequences, looked at the source files, and even rebuilt the 30-minute sequence from scratch.
If I render out the sections alone, no problems. 2 at a time, no problems. But if all 7 sections are rendered together, the problems come back. The effect is completely random, and doesn't stay in the same place with every render.
