I've been working on an HDV project in CS3 for sometime now (using Cineform). All has been going relatively well, except recently--wherever there is NO video in my timeline, the monitor outputs Red video. It used to be black. The fix is tedious, but works: drop black video into the timeline where there is no video. Probably not a bad idea anyway. But does anyone know why this would be happening? Even cross-dissolves, when there is no other video underneath on a 2nd track, will cross-dissolve to the color red.
Uh no, something is not very wrong; I can work around it. I just would like to know if someone has experienced this before; perhaps some setting somewhere is causing this. So far I know of no settings though that would cause this.
There is no option to tell PPro to output red video instead of the actual video, so yes, something is very wrong.
