flicker on old footage
on Mar 26, 2013 at 9:45:25 am

I have a flickering on some old footage that I can't get rid of.
It was Pathe footage, cut in fcp. I have slowed it down to 75 percent.

Anoyingly the dvd authoring has started so I can only re export the video layer as sound has been done.

Please can anyone help with this.

What I see is some frame blending that looks very ugly.
I guess introduced on the slow down and may be by a wrong managing of data bases.
Try keeping the speed at 75%, but uncheck "Frame Blending" on the speed window.
Which is the time-base of the archive footage, and which is the sequence time base?

In some ways the age of the footage and its very interesting content forgives a certain amount of flickering and artefacts. Having said that It looks like a field issue or maybe some frame blending thats not helping. Does de-interlacing help at all?

best wishes

It looks like the shutter flicker from the old film footage. By slowing it down you are magnifying it.

it sort of looks like "lower field" footage that was dropped into an "upper field" timeline.
