picture pixelated during transition CS5.5

Mar 7, 2012 7:18 PM

HI, WHen I put a basic transition on my timeline the picture goes pixelated. Before the transition is added, the picture is fine. This could be with any of the transitions that come with premiere...

 

Please see screen grab, and this is with the 'push' transition that comes with Premiere.

    I won't say this is the cause, but you have a mismatch between the media (1440 x 1080) and your sequence (1920 x 1080).  That should probably be corrected.

     

    What is your Playback Resolution set for?

    1440 does fit nicely into 1920x1080 when having mixed footage.

    If one has only HDV footage this should have a hdv preset.

    Set playback to full.

    blackmagic

     

    Ahhh, something like that should always be mentioned in the original post.

     

    Run a test using the correct Adobe supplied AVCHD sequence.  Report back.

    I'm actually not seeing anything wrong with the PP native sequence.

    I think that is his point. He has narrowed it down to be the fault of the Black Magic project settings.

    No need for frame blending.

    Source is 25 fps so is export.

    Try with default settings for VBR 2 pass.

    Try a preset first before tweaking all kinds of parameters, unless you know what you are doing.

     

    Set encoder quality to 4.

    Your bitrate is not set to default.

    2,8 - 5 - 7, try that.

    Uncheck Render at Max bit depth.

     

    Max bitdepth and render quality is only for preview in the sequence settings, might as well uncheck.

    Can you upload a short sample of the footage so we can test to see if we get the same results ?

     

    This way we can see if it has anthing to do with your computer or just settings.

    Just take your camera and use the same settings you shot with before and take some test shots.  See if it is still there or if it is just with the footage you have.

     

    As a test create some color mattes and test the transitions to see if it has nothing to do with the footage and maybe its your sytem.

    I tested the footage and it looks good on my system.

     

    I recorded a Screenr if you want to watch.

     

    http://www.screenr.com/1oN8

     

    The video played a little slow on their site but was smooth on my system.

     

    Here is a screen grab from Premiere.

    Here are the sequence settings that were used when dragging the footage to the NEW ITEM button.

     

    Are you updated to 5.5.2 ?

     

    Also did you do the matte color bars test ?

    What are your computer specs ?

     

    What graphic card do you have ?  is it updated from the manufacturer's site ?

     

    From your screen grabs I can see tears going down the screen by his arm.

    After reading your other post I see you have a nice system.

     

    To bad your builder wasnt Eric from ADK

     

    I see Harm said to check your temps under normal and load.  Speccy works good to see those temps.

     

    I also fear that PSU is to small for your setup.

     

    Have you gone to Nvidia and gotten the latest drivers for your Quadro 4000 ?

     

    Show a screen grab of the temps with Speccy before and while rendering please.

    At this time I dont know what else might be giving you problems.

     

    At least if it was doing the same thing on my system then we would know it was repeatable.

     

    Since im getting good results I fear its something to do with your system.

     

    Maybe those tests will tell if you system is getting to hot.

     

    Mabye some with a better hardware understanding can chime in.
