    avchd uber glitchy

    getho Level 2

      CS5: I've noticed a new type of glitch with GH2 (non-hacked) AVCHD files: they play back very glitchy - flashing frames from further along the clip (in the edit monitor window). The glitchiness will last for a second or so, then randomly start again several seconds later. It looks to me like a codec thing (I cant see that a video driver issue would show frames in advance of where the playhead is).


      The files are playing back from single WD caviar black, but the footage is stock 720 50p, so I shouldn't imagine it'll be stressing te drives too much.

            OK I've just found another more significant problem. which is surely linked:

            when I play the clip in a sequence - the clip gets drastically out of sync from where it should be: so if I play a 25 second clip the playhead will get to the end of it, but it will only be playing what is actually halfway through.  hhmm. Also when I step forward the same glitching can be found - ie the frame order is jumbled even when advancing frame at a time. (the clips play back in VLC just fine)


            Maybe this is to do with the fact that the fps footage is being seen by premiere as 25fps (in the media bin frame rate).  I tried interpreting the footage as 50fps and it does the same thing.


            when I play clip with audio the audio sounds right.  Its not as simple as the video being half the speed though - after 50 seconds the the video is about 5 seconds behind.


            more info:
            importing clip from ssd makes no difference
            It never glitches the same way twice on a clip.

            it exports WITHOUT the glitches (but the sync is all out - sounds plays normal speed picture in slowmo)

              This is is the media analysis by super (mediainfo)

              Reports 25fps, VLC reports 50fps.  I can tell by the slow mo that it is 50fps, though.
