I am working on a video that consists entirely of digital photos provided by my client (all jpgs - not my decision). Many of them flicker terribly in the final video. I did a search for "anti-flicker" on this forum and read a number of threads about it. There is one thing I am experiencing that I do not believe was covered in any of those threads.
First of all, selecting "flicker removal" in a clip's field options is useless. I don't know why this should be so, since this worked very well in Premiere 6.5 (my previous version).
However, adjusting the anti-flicker filter in the motion settings works great when one renders a preview. But this seems to have no effect on the final video output, and strangely, all the anti-flicker settings reset to zero if I exit the program. This seems like a bug to me. Does anyone else experience this?
Here is my work around. If I also make an adjustment to the scale of the clip, then Premiere will remember the anti-flicker filter setting, and the final video output is flicker free. If my photo is already sized for the screen, I'll set a scale setting of 99%. If the photo is large, I will either resize it in Photoshop, or uncheck "scale to frame size" and resize it with the scale adjustment.
