  • flickering stills

    Hi- I'm used to editing progressive projects now, so it's a while since I had any issues with flickering stills. But I'm working on a project for dvd (it's a mixture of progressive HDV and interlaced DV- no way around that now) using an SD 16:9 project. Result: lots of annoying flickering when I use stills (and one set of stills- which is high res, but I've both resized AND used 3D p-in-p to give some movement- flickers and looks very poor quality.)
    I know fine detail in stills can get split between the two fields, hence the flickering. And I'm pretty sure there's a setting that might help. But I can't find it here or in the manual- so any suggestions? Or do I need a workaround?

    Hi:

    Did You try the options in the following?

    Settings > Systemsettings > Export/Import > Stills

      Don't use the 3D for movement, use the Layout tool, or another photo app to make movement like the old Imaginate or ProShow, and you can also add Edius anti flicker to the still, or you can also take that still to photo shop and add .3 guassian blur to it.

          Still on 5.5 so no 3D layout tool. I'd like imaginate, but it's not going to happen. So how do you add 'edius anti-flicker'? This sounds like what I might need!

            Anti-flicker is one of the stock filters

              the 2D layouter in 5.5 works fine for animating stills, much better than 3D PIP

                also, stills with fine detail such as thin lines can be fixed in Photoshop with motion blur 90 deg x 1pixel

                  Thanks everyone- of course, anti-flicker is a filter! Didn't come up when I searched the manual though... I wanted a 3D effect, but it's not necessary, really.
                  I've used photoshop blur before, and it definitely helps the flicker- but I've also found it made stills a little TOO blurry. This is mostly text- probably one of the worst things for flicker- so I might have to try it.
                  I'll also try using shots of the book- the digital versions (exported as stills in photoshop from a pdf) were probably the wrong way to approach this.
                  Cheers :)
