  • Captured video looks like it's strobed

    Hello,

    I'm new to Edius (I've been using DVStorm for the past 7 years) and I'm capturing HDV footage via a SONY M15AU deck through firewire. I've tried the capture settings recommended through the Edius Help guide as well as any of the other settings that will let me capture; however, the footage always plays back like it has a stutter/light strobe on it, even though it plays directly through the deck beautifully. I've even exported the captured footage to a Blu-ray and it appears stuttery on there, especially during motion.

    Can anyone give me advice on any mistakes I'm making while capturing? I'm trying the Generic HDV input Canopus HQ settings and it seems to happen on all of them.

    Thank you in advance.

    What framerate was the HDV recorded in? Is it something that requires pulldown processing?

      It tells me 1080 at 60i when it plays out of the deck. Can you explain what "pulldown processing" is? I'm sorry, this is a little new to me.

        Have you made sure in project settings that upper field first has been selected.

          In the timeline, the video info says that "top field first" is selected. I've tried changing the project settings a few times and the top field is still selected.

          I also see no options to change fields when I capture, but I guess it capturing with the top field selected?

            Just change the clip field order & see if this works!
            Changing the project field order doesn't make any sense!

              Thank you to all who've responded!

              I tried changing the field in several clips to bottom field, and then progressive. Progressive made it worse and there was no change with bottom field.

              I believe it has something to do with how I'm capturing from the deck, because it plays beautifully from the deck directly into my monitor but as soon as it's captured, no matter what imput I use, it's got a stutter on the playback and when I burn to Blu-ray. Am I missing something in the capture selection?

                  I'm using Windows XP with Edius 5.1 and I have a Sony M15AU HDV deck. The deck goes into the computer via firewire and I'm using the HDMI output from the computer to the monitor.

                      HDMI from which EDIUS card? Spark? Storm 3G? If you don't have EDIUS hardware, your HDMI out from a graphics card will look stroby, this is normal

                      also, what is your project setting? it should also be interlaced and top field first
