Hi. When I apply an effect to a clip (Black&White, rotate clip, etc) the clip starts to shimmer/flicker and is not as clear as the original, when i play it. however when i pause or quickly drag the bar through it, it looks normal. will my video come out ok when i burn it? thanks for any help anyone can give me. i'm using 2.5 Ghz quadcore pc with 4gb of ram.. so i don't think the problem is my pc.
The image-display that you see when you have paused, is the quality that you would get in the output.
Since these effects that you have applied, needs some computation, the real time playback is not able to compute this and show it in real time.
If you want to see the effects before outputting, you need to hit enter on the keyboard for the computation to happen. It would take a while, but you can be sure that what you see here is what you get. :)
