Hello all, I'm working with footage that was shot in a club environment with camera flashes going off and once I exported said footage from Avid Xpress Pro (as QT mov with Animation setting) and import it into AE7 the camera flashes turn into visible bands of light that look really bad. I've interperted the footage correctly (D1 720x486 29.97, lower field first) so I'm at a loss as to what is causing this. I tried a levels adjustment to bring down the luminance but nothing changed. Any advice would be greatly appreciated.
Thanks in advance,
Could you export a faulting frame from AE, and the very same frame from Avid and post them here ?
If you read the file from QT, do you have the banding issue ?
If you open the QT file in Avid, do you have the banding too ?
I guess this problem could come from the conversion to QT animation, but i'm not sure.
I figured it out I think, I was exporting the clips from Avid with an RGB color setting instead of 601 and changing that seems to have corrected it. Thanks for your advice at any rate!
