First off some specs - I am working on a 3.33GHz 6-Core Mac Pro with 12GB RAM running final cut pro 7 with OSX Lion.
I am editing a project and have some media that was ingested from P2 cards and is DVCPR HD 1080p30, 29.97fps. My sequence settings are:
HD (1280 x 1080) 16:9
Pixel Aspect: HD (1280 x 1080)
Field Dom: None
Compressor: DVCPRO HD 1080p30
On playback, the footage has an intermittent flicker where the picture breaks into lines. Clips play fine in the viewer and also in Quicktime Pro. I've tried changing playback settings to no avail.
My monitor is connected through an HDMI port which someone mentioned might be the issue. Otherwise, I am at a loss as to how to fix this issue. I've used P2 media and DVCPRO HD codec many different times in the past and never had this problem. Any help greatly appreciated!!
