I've done everything I can think of, including browsing all forums and trying things others have suggested that are close to my issue. Nothing works.
I have clips in a timeline, with title clips for text and such. Standard stuff. On some clips, I can set speed to 90% and set clip to "always deinterlace" and they work fine, no flicker. Other clips I do the same thing and the entire video flickers horribly. I checked the specs on both clips and they are the same. The only difference I can see is that the clips that don't flicker when speed changed to under 100% were captured a year or so ago. The flicking clips were captured this week. Same camera for both. I did upgrade to CS5 between these captures, but can't see how that would make a difference?
I did an entirely different project with recent clips just fine a couple months ago. No idea why I have problems now -- unless it's a combination of older and newer captured clips? But that still doesn't make sense?
All display fine at 100% speed.
The biggest thing I don't understand is why the entire video flickers? The titles (with text) flicker really badly. Changing the speed of the clip (track 1) changes the flickering in the titles (tracks 3 and 4). How could a clip affect other tracks?
I've spent hours on this already and I'm at a loss. Attempted time remapping instead of speed, tried every combination of de-interlacing, anti-flicker, etc.
I have a new machine, Win 7 Pro 64, 8GB ram, i7 quad, big video card/ram, etc. CS5 with all latest updates. I run nothing but CS5 on this machine. Sequence settings 29.97 drop-frame, DV Widescreen, NTSC.
In the past, when I changed the speed of a clip (slower), I had to mark it "always deinterlace" to remove the
flicker. It works great for some clips. If I don't, they flicker with the interlacing.
I'd prefer to simply change the speed or time, but that alone doesn't work.
I capture AVIs. Not sure if that's important or not.
Good idea, but didn't work. Actually had the exact same issue -- flickering just with certain clips within the nested sequence.
If it did work, it would be almost impossible to edit. That would be a lot of work in multiple sequences just to slow down some of the video to 90%.
Should not have to de-interlace to simply slow a clip down.
Make sure your clip attributes match the timeline attributes (creat a new timeline by dropping a clip on the new item icon - this creates the timeline with the clips attributes correctly)
Are you rendering or playing back at full res/quality? If not; flicking may just be because it is not rendered full qual.
I checked the attributes to the timeline. I'll create a new timeline and play with it in
case I missed something. At 100% speed, they all play fine. Thank you for the suggestion. I'll give it a whirl.
I do play back and full res/quality. I also burned to DVD just to make sure it wasn't my monitor or the computer's video playback. However, it looks exactly the same both ways.
I started de-interlacing from another forum that recommended it to remove flicker. Started that back with CS3 or CS4. It does work with most of my clips. This is what makes me think I captured these newer clips wrong or something?
Would you recommend AVI clips? Are there settings I should check for capturing? I believe the only choice I really had was DV or HDV, which I have a Sony VX-2100, so it's just DV.
I tried the drag-drop to new and all testing is the same as in the timeline I have. Flickers if under 100% speed. I don't see any difference in the results.
The Sequence created automatically had DVPRO50 instead of "DV NTSC" that I have for the original sequence. Not sure the difference, but the results in playback are the same. Everything else was the same.
i think it's a premiere problem (unfurtunatly not the only) not your
i have win 7 with cs 5.0.3 + nvidia 470 + matrox rtx2 and i've the same problem, when i change the speed or i put PIP sometimes video flickering, my video arePAL SD, IT'S VERY sad, i think cs3+matrox rtx2 was the best solution, unfortunately missed full hd, now premiere prefer nvidia than matrox but nvidia help you just in preview but matrox help you in rendering and more
Always Deinterlace is very usefull when slowing down a clip or a freeze frame.
When using it on DV material one should reverse the Field Dominance.
As DV is lower and Always Deinterlace retains the Upper Field.
Radiotest: when using the Matrox are you capturing through the Matrox of so it might very well be that your DV material is upper field, so you need to adjust the sequence settings to upper.
I tired reversing the field dominance, but it makes no difference.
Still a bad flicker. Tried combos of all other options as well (always deinterlace, flicker removal, none
, etc.) and while each setting changes the flicker a little, all are bad. I just can't seem to slow down a clip.
I tried even numbers, odd numbers, random (72%), etc. Even found a recommendation for specific speeds (100
%, 70, 62, etc) and nothing works.
I just setup a brand new project so everything is clean. While the video clip itself flickers a bit when slowed down (I suppose should be expected), when I add a title clip over it the title flickers like it was on purpose. I just don't get how the video clip is making the title clip flicker???
