I am regularly getting a one-frame glitch, almost always located in the lower half of a frame that shifts everything over to the right 20-50 pixels and is sometimes dark or slightly brighter than the rest of the image. It rarely happens more than once in a rendered clip, and almost always in the fist 5 seconds. Render always 1080p, Photo-Jpeg .mov

Here is a sample image:

Specs: i7-PC 12MB Ram, AE CS5.5, GTS-450 GPU
Rendering to internal SATA drive.

Any ideas?

1) Ensure that you have the latest QuickTime which is proven to be compatible and stable with your OS.

2) Does the issue appear with a specific plugin/effect?

3) Try a different CODEC.

4) Try purging the memory prior to a render - Edit>Purge>All Memory.

...and don't use Open GL to accelerate rendering, either. Turn it off. Leave it off.

It was my computer memory. I had one stick of RAM that was different from the original memory with the machine. Apparently the inconsistencies of latency or otherwise glitched outputs.

Pulled the offending stick of ram and now outputs are PERFECT.
