  • Fireworks - blocks in dark areas


    I filmed New Year fireworks with my Canon HF G10 camera. I use WD TV Live to view files through HDMI on 55 inch TV. When I watch original files coming from the camera the quality of the picture is very good. When I run the AVCHD files through EDIUS - I see darker and lighter blocks in dark areas of the sky. Their intensity varies depending on the content of the picture, but they are visible and distracting (to me). I just placed an avchd file from the camera on the timeline, set in and out point and 'Print to file' (F11) with Blu-ray preset. No other filters/transformation have been applied to original video file.

    I also tried to change various project parameters, like software/hardware encoder, bitrates (normally I use VBR 21mb/s with 24mb/s max), project video quantization: 8/10 bit and other parameters - nothing helps. The files straight from the camera look MUCH better.

    Can somebody point me in the right direction?
    Thank you,

    Change your bitrate to 40mb/s, if you still see it, don't use blu-ray preset, you MPEG2 HD output to make blu-ray file, I always thought that Edius MPEG2 HD is better than Edius H.264

        I agree with Anton, Hi Def MPEG2 is the way to go, that is what I do and they play great on my WD TV Hub
