Final Cut Pro Horizontal Lines through my video.
on Feb 26, 2012 at 8:12:50 pm

Hey, i have the horizontal lines through my video once i dump the video into the timeline. I've tried de-interlacing it, but it doesn't do anything and sometimes just makes them worse. I make gaming videos, and record with a capture card. I'm a noob with final cut but i know the basics. Please help!!
Heres one of my videos for proof-

What format are you capturing to? Looks a bit like a wrong field dominance problem.

Don't capture to H.264, it's not supported in FCP for editing. It's a delivery format.

Capture to ProRes instead. ProRes 4:2:2 or ProRes HQ might fix you right up.

Try transcoding the H.264 you have captured to ProRes, put it in a sequence matching it's settings, then see if the result isn't better.

How are you connecting from your game box to the computer?

That what i was doing before i think. It gets worse at first then when add the de-interlace effect using the upper(odd) it gets better. But when i do the even it gets worse. Hmmm I dont see what you mean by transcode it. I went to sequence settings and changed the sequence compressor to apple pro res 422, if thats what you mean by transcoding it.

I mean you should take a clip that's h.264 now, and export it as proves. Then import that proves version of your file and see if the problem doesn't go away when you put it in a sequence matching it's settings. Your problem may well be the fact that FCP does not in any way support h.264 editing. You have to make the source become ProRes before you edit it.

To do what Jerry suggests, drag your h.264's into Compressor and choose ProRes setting hit submit. Drag the new ProRes file/s into FCP and hit yes.
