Boris FX in FCP7 flickering

Hi - I'm new to this forum and to Boris FX for FCP.

I searched the archive but couldn't see any posts relating to the problem I have with Boris FX and FCP7.

I'm finding many of the filters in FCP will intermittently 'flicker' or 'jump around' when I keyframe a transition.

For example, BCC RT Light Sweep - when I put in two keyframes in the light centre box to animate the light across the object, every 20 or 30 frames the light will jump or flicker, completely ruining the effect. I have this same problem with many of the other Boris plugins. However I also have Boris for AE and this works perfectly.

Is this a know issue?

Thanks,

Ken.

Ken,

I'd like to see exactly what you are keyframing.

Could you send me a copy of the FCP project file? Or at least steps to reproduce the issue?

My e-mail is mattm@borisfx.com

Thanks.

Ken,

Just in case you do not get my e-mail or someone else was interested in the resolution to this problem.

In the Common controls of the filter set Reduce flicker to 1-2-1 and Field rendering to optimized for quality. This resolves the issue on our end. Let me know if this helps.

To confirm - yes this fix does work - many thanks to the Boris team for sorting this out - all the best,

Ken.
