Premiere Elements 12/12.1 is designed to have the project set the project preset automatically based on its analysis of the properties of the first file dragged to its Timeline.
What is the project preset now from the project automatically or from your manual setting of it (File Menu/New/Project)? The manual setting is done before import of the file. How are you importing the file from your card - Add Media/Videos from Flip or Cameras/Video Importer or something else?
Based on video described as 1920 x 1080 50i, the indicated project preset would be
Full HD1080i25 (if audio stereo)
Is that confirmed by Edit Menu/Project Settings/General (Editing Mode, Timebase, Frame Size, and Pixel Aspect Ratio) once the file is on the project's Timeline?
If you right click the file on the Timeline, select Field Options, and then first Reverse Field Dominance, is there any impact on any Moire effects that may be presenting in the monitor playback?
What is your intended export for the Timeline? It is in your plans to export to file as 1080p instead of 1080i?
Hi ATR, thank you very much for your fast response,
- I did the manual presets in the same way as you described
- After copying some video .MTS-files from SDXC- flash card into my computer, I used PE12 to import these .MTS-files to the timeline by: Ad media from files (in Dutch: bestanden en mappen)
- The presets in the Edit Menu are the same as my manual setting
- After selecting Field options as you advised, I chose "remove flikkering" (is like removing the Moirë-effect) and it completely solved my problem!
Thank you very much!!
Regarding to this, I have one more question:
I have about 400 clips on the time line, how can I copy this Field option effect to all my other clips, without touching all clips individually by hand?
Thanks for the great news regarding removal of theMoire-effect using Field Options/Flicker Removal.
I see that as a one at a time operation. I tried several scenarios for the more than one at a time only to be met with grayed out ways.
But, I do have a possible substitute idea for more than one time.
Instead of using Field Options/Flicker Removal, use Applied Effects Tab/Applied Effect Palette/Motion Panel expanded and the AntiFlicker filter there.
Anti-Flicker filter there can be a more than one at a time operation. To do that.....
Select/highlight the first video. Go to Applied Effects Tab/Applied Effects Palette/Motion Panel expanded and set the Anti-Flicker filter to 1.0 or whatever works best for you (range 0.00 to 1.00). Then right click that first video, select Copy from the pop up menu that appears. Then select (all at one time) all the other videos to which you want to apply the Anti-Flicker filter, right click anywhere in the selection, click on Paste Efffects and Adjustments in the pop up menu that appears.
To select clips all at one time
a. As you hold down the Shift key, click on each of the videos that you want selected all at one time
b. With the mouse cursor, draw a rectangle around the clips involved in order to select them
Please consider, and then let us know if any of the above worked for you.
I started from scratch (undoing all Field options), I then tried the Applied Effects /.Motion Panel/ Antiflicker filter from 0.4 til 1.0 on the first clip en all other clips, the like you advised , but there was no effect.
I accidentely right clicked in de monitor and found an item: "Display Quality". I chose>High Quality, instead of Automatic (the preset)
The result was fantastic with one touch all flickering (Moiré-effects) in all of the clips on the timeline were gone completely.
I then added a menue.and some markers to the timeline in order to publish and burn it on a DVD
But before burning I noticed that the Flickering was there again and after burning the Flickering was also on the DVD
I than did the earlier mentioned Field Option/Remove flickering on each clip seperately and it worked well even on the DVD, almost all Flickering was gone.
So I have a solution.now for my problem, but it is some kind of monk work to do the Field Option on 400 clips, not forgetting one!
Before HD, I used to make my video on mini DV cassettes and I never had that awful Moiré effect
Even now displaying .MTS-file (HD clips) with Windows Media Player, the clips are perfect without any flickkering
1) is an upgrade to PE 12.1 or to the newest PE 14 perhaps a solution for my flickering problem with HD video? Am I the only one with this problem??
2) in your first answer on the 23-januari 2016, you wrote about exporting the timeline to 1080p instead if my 1080i, what is the difference/advantage of it?
Thanks and please let me know,
The difference between Flicker Removal and Anti flicker effect is the the former blends the two fields and the latter adds a slight Blur.
Having to use Flicker Removal on a few clips is normal but needing to put them on all of them? Dan ben je wel een tijdje bezig The effect was not designed to put on all clips.
I wonder if its Moire. I think its more an interlaced problem. Can you upload a clip which shows the issue very clear to test?
Can you also post a screenshot of your project settings.
How are you viewing this dvd? On your pc and with which Player or standalone dvd player on a HDTV?
Moire will give you lovely patterns. Interlaced artifacts will give you jumpy thin horizontal lines.
Please tel me which file type I have to upload?
The only way to show the issue very clear, is displaying the clip in the timeline, and it is also very clear in the preview, but when I publish/share the timeline (even with making a menu) to a computerfile ( mpeg2 file 1440x1080i25) or flash, displaying this file does not show the issue
What to do?
Hereby I send two screenshots with the projectsettings from newstart en from the timeline (the Original clip a .MTS file is also 1440x1080 and has the same problems as the 1920X1080
I viewed the DVD with VLC mediaplayer on mij computerscreen (what you see on the computer is not what you get on TV, is that what you mean?)
Please upload a clip to test.
You have to except that a DVD does not look good on a big HD tv played with a regular dvd player. You need a BD player with upscaler.
Sorry, I will upload later ( have to study Youtube first, uploading is new to me)
I will upload the original clip as it was recorded on the SDXC-memorycard
I make DVD only for short videos of about 10minutes, because the music is the most important part here.
For the bigger videos I make BD
I meant a clip to test myself or (others)
Use dropbox or Wetranfer.
But the first is visible in the building on the left at the top.
The stone structure is so detailed the horizontal lines are smaller then a tv scanlijn hence the flickering.
You often see this in detailed brick work or checkered shirts.
You can apply Field Options/Always deinterlace.
Or stabilize the clip then add a mask with a blur.
Second video is private.
Another option is to drop the footage in a dslr 1920x1080 progressive project: dont know if this is going to work but is worth a try.
Untill 8th of februari 2016 I am unable to answer any question
Yes, this is one of the effects: all the diagonals in the black building in the centre are vibrating/moving, evenso are the bricks in the building at the left hand, evenso are the redbricks over the windows in the building in the centre and also the leaves in the green tree.to the right are vibrating. like the Moiré-effect.
If I open the original clip on my computerscreen with Windows mediaplayer the whole clip is stabel, but importing it to the timeline in PE12 the above mentioned effect are ocurring.
I can reproduce this in PE12.
Download PE14 and see if you have the same issue.
In PE 14 everything looks fine.
Do you know if it is possible to have installed both PE12 and PE14 at the same time, on the same C: partition? Or do they intervene/ conflict each other
Because I still have a lot of mini DV-tapes to import by firewire in PE12, and PE14 does not support mini DV-tapes anymore.
Yes PE12 and PE14 co-exist.
Use PE12 for capturing and import into PE14.
I have installed PE14 and imported some clips with PE14 tot the timeline, first with automatic setting, and the second time with predefined settings,
I added a menu and played some clips, but I have the same issue as before, the disturbing Moiré-effects are the same as in PE12
What to do now ?
I still have these disturbing Moiré-effects, not only in PE12 but also in the latest version PE14
I hope that Adobe has a solution for this problem.
Adobe, please help!
