AVCHD Help!

Jul 3, 2012 12:35 PM

Tags: #sony #avchd #playback #issues #lines #wavy

We are using a Sony Handycam that shoots in AVCHD. I've already been through some issues with these files and managed to get them into the program and editing was completed, but in the end the video has wavy lines over any movement in the frame. Pans are much worse with the picture jumping. The untouched footage, before importing into adobe, is not as bad but there is still some glitching and it seems to be inconsistent - wavy lines in certain places are not there when played a second time but appear later in the footage.

 

I understand the issues with.MTS and that a conversion needs to happen but the programs I have tried thus far, albiet free ones and trials, have not helped. Just wondering what I can do to fix the footage or even make it a fraction better. We will be upgrading our camera so this will not be something we will have to deal with long term, but we'd like to salvage the footage we have already taken.

 

Thank you!

AJ

    Third, you need to be sure your project sequence is correct...

    Please NOTE that the PPro CS6 screen may look a bit different

    For CS5 and later, the easy way to insure that your video and your project match

    How are you viewing the "untouched footage, before importing into adobe"?

    Your isue is with your camera or a camera setting or the way you are shooting and operating the camera.

    First get the camera fixed, then reshoot.

    Sorry...I re read your post and realised that you were aware it was a camera issue.

     

    I doubt there is any reasonable way of fixing it in post production or Premiere

    -OS is Windows 7 Professional SP1 64 Bit

    -Video card - ATI Radeon HD 5700 Series (x2 without crossfire)

    -Mercury Playback Engine is enabled

    How did you do that?  ATI/Mercury is designed for Mac and very few Macs at that.  If you altered a list of supported cards in Pr, I suggest undoing that alteration to see if things improve.
