I have used the advanced keyer extensively in the blue screen arena and I had an issue with a 1 hour prog where it was intermittently rendering with small (about 1 frame long) black flashes throughout the prog. I made sure my standard keyer filter box was not checked, rebooted etc and even tried using the media in a new project all to no avail.
My workaround was to cut the instance just before the flash and render from there, then on to the next flash and so forth. Very painful but I got there.
Has anyone else had this issue and got any answers?
Also occaisonally my system (internally locked) sometimes seems to lose lock and then about 10 seconds later crashes.
Could these two probs be related?
(All self tests passed fine)
Any help much appreciated
Long live the 844, there's still nothing out there that compares.
I've had issues with heavy layering and keying where my video card simply gives up and gives me a green screen. Nice for keying people in front of, by the way. But usually, by that time, they're more into editing product.
I have to restart to fix it. If it persists, I've found nesting layers as a way to help it.
I've never had the blank frame issue, though.
Next time you have that issue, try doing just the key, nesting the layer, and then doing whatever else you're doing to the clip and see if that helps. Sometimes you have to feed it in smaller mouthfulls.
