When I render HD720p video to mpeg2-dvd (23.976) I end up with a thin color stripe on the right side of the output video. The stripe usually appears wherever I have a crossfade between images/videos. How can I solve this problem>
Thank you. I'm using CS6 and I recently updated my graphics card.
When I render H.264 for YouTube using the same source files, I do not have any problem with the color stripe on the right side of the output video. I render mpeg2-dvd in the highest quality (5). I don't know what else to say. Thank you very much for your input though.
A test... export as (widescreen?) DV AVI and see if you still have the problem
As a personal choice, so I don't have to figure out bit budgeting and transcode settings, I always export as DV AVI for Encore authoring (and I have Encore set to use automatic transcoding to make a "best fit" of video to my chosen single or dual layer DVD)
IF exporting to DV AVI for Encore authoring works, use that
Does this issue appear in other projects with 720p to mpeg2-dvd or just this one.
Is your source also 23,976
Did you set scale to fill?
Instead of using a crossfade try overlapping the clips and keyframe opacity.
Thank you John,
I did as you suggested: AVI NTSC Widescreen (24fps). Same problem. I don't have the problem rendering in H.264 720p using the same source files. The reason I am rendering mpeg2-dvd is because I want the final DVD output in 23.976 fps, so when importing into Encore, the source file is not transcoded again at a higher fps. I'll keep looking for answers.
I have not had this problem since upgrading to CS6. This is my 40th project and the only one with this problem, so far. I've check and rechecked everything and the compositions/setting, etc. are consistent from project to project. All comps and source files are 23.976. No scaling was used.
As you suggested, the issue is with the crossfade. Unfortunately, I cannot always overlap the clips because of the audio portion (I need to crossfade the video only). These are people interviews where I've had to edit out a short segment (say 7 seconds), then rejoin the clip by butting then together to reconstruct the audio. Any ideas for thIs?
If this the only project giving you this issue I think the project might be a bit corrupt.
You can try and open this project into a new project.
If you can add a cross dissolve you can overlap the video part. Its basicly the same.
Use alt or unlink video from audio.
