downconvert to SD flickering?
by Dale Roberts on Aug 12, 2008 at 7:16:20 am


Been playing with our new XD 422 HDCAM and am noticing when i do a downconvert to SD the picture flickers. Even when there is no camera movement or anything actually moving in shot there is a flicker or jitter if u like... as things move thru shot they get worse.

It was shot 108050i and making into a 25i project.

it looks like like field order but I am doubting that as I have read ( I think!) that this is a common phenomenon with downconverts?

Anyone have any ideas? I am new to HD world!

Regards,
Dale...

Hi,

We bring in the proxy files then batch import to HD resolution then in the format tab change it to 25i.

Is there a better way???

You just changed the project settings (1080i - 25i), not the nature of the clip.

Try transcoding clips to SD resolution. Highlight the clips in your bin, right-click then transcode.
