Hello all,
I have a horizontal shift glitch occurring when footage is being brought into After Effects. I've attached an image so you can see what it's doing, look on the bridge of her nose.

Here are some specifics:
Footage was shot in an MP4 format with a Sony XDCam EX PMW-EX1.
Footage is in a 1920x1080 format @ 29.97fps.
Original footage is good (no glitches) before importing into After Effects.
Footage gets the glitch/shift when brought into After Effects.
Comp is being made by dropping footage onto the New Comp Icon so settings match the original footage.

Working on CS6

Any ideas on what is happening and a fix for this?

Thanks in advance!
Paul

Also, the glitch only appears for about 1-2 frames, then gone.
It does happen randomly, maybe once every 3-5 seconds though.

Thank you.
Paul

Either use a newer AE version than CS6 or transcode the video to a lossless codec. I like Quicktimes in ProRes422, Photo JPEG Animation or PNG codecs for this.

I exported from Premiere in a png sequences and it worked!
Thank you!

Looks like I have a lot of exporting to do now since I have about 20 clips to do.

Thank you again!
Paul

Glad it worked. AE CS6 doesn't play nicely with highly compressed stuff like mp4's. You probably know Adobe Media Encoder can help you with that job, right?
