How do I turn this off?
I'm getting four lines of green text in the upper left of the screen when I output to Matrox AVI from premiere CS4. I haven't seen this before so I must have inadvertently switched something on, but I can't determine what it is. The lines are: Current Frame, CPU Load, Input Size and Output size.
They are a permanent part of the video when it is output as a Matox AVI.
Can you help me get this off the screen.
I've never heard of this, but then do not use Matrox.
What version of PrPro?
What version of Matrox drivers?
What is the output format, and settings?
Also, I would post to the Matrox forum, as they might be of more help.
Nothing to do with Matrox.
Sounds like it's the OSD (on screen display) stats from a ffdshow decoder. Do you have ffdshow installed on your PC? If so you can select or deselect these items or untick OSD in the left pane of the "ffdshow video decoder configuration" utility under "ffdshow" of your installed programs.
Ah, FFDShow, eh? Now I know why I have never seen such.
FFDShow has been known to cause all sorts of issues with Adobe NLE programs, and most users recommend complete removal of it from the system.
Thanks for sharing that tid-bit.
I've not encountered any specific problems with ffdshow (when I've had it installed).
The "Merit" and "Don't use ffdshow in" and "Show dialog when unknown application tries to load ffdshow" controls in the "Directshow Conrol" options can usually be used to tell ffdshow to keep out of the way for specific programs.
I'm wondering now what FFDShow is and if I need it. If I don't how would I uninstall it. What programs initially install this? Matrox RXT-2 is what I edit on with PPP CS4. Would that be the culprit requiring FFDShow?
FFDShow can be installed from several sources. One common one is with the K-Lite CODEC Pack, but there are others.
PS - there might be some background in the hits in this Google Search. I would read a few of the Adobe Premiere Forum threads.
You might get a clue by looking at the list of programs in its "Use ffdshow in" and "Don't use ffdshow in" lists. These are effectively black and white lists of programs that ffdshow will allow or disallow itself to be used with.
To uninstall, just do what you would do with any other program - there is a ffdshow uninstall entry in the windows Control Panel's "Add/Remove Programs" or "Programs and Features" icon.
