Layered sequence creates a flashing image

Dec 17, 2010 10:06 PM

I've successfully been layering multiple copies of the same clip to produce some interesting visuals.

With 1 section only the layering produces a flashing image, as if brightness/contrast levels are varying.

My first thought was that they were slightly out of time, so I duplicated the top layer, got rid of the bottom one (there are only two). Then pasted in the copy and applied the old settings from the previous layer, but.. still got the flashing.

Now I've used this effect on all surrounding footage, which was filmed in the same location, and there's no problem.

What would cause this to happen?

 

Effects used:

B/C

Color Balance

Color Balance

ProcAmp

 

Plz bear in mind this occurs on only one of multiple clips and they all use these effects

    My guess would be Brightness & Contrast.

     

    Is that set to Automatic? If so, that is likely your problem.

     

    Check all of your Effects settings, and disable ANY Auto functions. They WILL likely cause strobing, or pulsing.

     

    Good luck,

    I'm at a loss to explain that. I have used ProcAmp a few times, but in those instances, have not noticed any issues. My experiences were probably like your Clips, where it worked fine, and just never hit the "bad" combo.

     

    Maybe others will have some ideas, or suggestions.

     

    Good luck,
