FCP 7 - Issues with Image increasing in lightness.
on Dec 14, 2013 at 12:18:55 am

Working with Sony AVCHD converted to quicktime using using Media Converter. Shot in 1080P/24P and 1 clip in 1080P/60P (for a freeze frame in the middle of the clip). Sequence Settings Screen Shot and Attached here.


I add a cross dissolve and the gets in brighter until the cross dissolve is done, then it goes back to normal color. Time ramping a clip changes the brightness of the clip as well. Selecting the frame #, take a freeze frame and putting in-between two clips shows the freeze frame to also be brighter.

Any help would be appreciated.

thanks so much

Please tell us about the codecs of the footage and the timeline in which you're editing.

Sorry, but I see no attached image, and I'm sure you're aware that AVCHD is not a valid editing codec in FCP.

[Patrick Jones] " Hey there - I did In my post and attached image."

Nope...all you said in the original post was: "Working with Sony AVCHD converted to quicktime using using Media Converter." You didn't say what you converted to...?

And there is no screen shot attached.

but what codec is the quicktime?
your screengrab shows your SEQUENCE settings only

if you've just re-wrpaped the avchd that could be the problem.
it would be best to actually convert it to Prores

What dissolve are you using? An "additive" dissolve?

Just basic. Cross Dissolve. nothing fancy. When I remove the cross dissolve, the image still stays the brightness... just a weird issue...

Update: I created a new sequence. AppleProRess422HQ and copy and pasted... rendered... took a lot longer, 1.5 hours for 5 mins... LOL but no issues.
