I work for a distribution company and one of our programs have got rejected for broadcast. Can anyone tell me what type of video issue this is? I am trying to fix it but nothing has work so far.

The program video is 1080 50i Apple Pro Res 422 HQ.

You're talking about that yellow line around the subject, right? That's going to happen on a shot as poorly-exposed as that one.

The sky's blown-out... there's insufficient light on the subject... apart from shooting it again, I don't know of any way to rescue something like that. There isn't any detail in the bright spots, and hardly any in the dark spots.

How can you even see that, Dave? All I see is code for embedding in the post, but I can't for the life of me find a way to see it.

Ah, I think I got it.

It was very poorly shot. Too bright in the sky and too dark everywhere else. What was the rejection? You can ask for it to be forgiven, if this is all you have. I've worked on historic docs with worse looking footage, and we got a pass.

I don't know of any way to fix this stuff in FCP. You'd need a lot of time and painstaking work in Fusion or After Effects to clean up those lines and blobs. Sometimes it almost looks like there's schmutz on the lens, but it's never in the same place.

This is something you'll want to add to your "never, EVER do this" list... what kind of camera got these shots? It certainly does NOT have a very high contrast range. Nor does it help that much of it was shot in available light.
