Looks a little like a fluorescent light phase pulse to me ... but that would not explain why it looks ok in other Players.
(Shooting PAL in the 110 volt US system could have explained it otherwise)
Sorry cant help any further than that.
I also released another video which was good.
But that original video got captured in CS4 without splitted scenes. The footage was recorded on the begin of the tape so no out of sync problems there yet.
You can see it on: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=WCnv4bojI5A
I think I only have the black flickering problems when I capture with vegas or HDVSplit. The output is M2T.
When I capture with Premiere I get MPEG output without flickering.
Only problem with premiere is that audio and video gets out of sync.
Is there a solution for this problem? I read alot of forums and many users with the same problem but everywhere I read the solution to use HDVSplit with splitted scenes.
How to get one big MPEG file output with Premiere without audio and video gets out of sync?
When I capture a whole tape in CS4 (and CS3) in HDV mode the audio gets out of sync after 25 minutes or something. Why is that? Many people have the same problem, but no solutions? Split scenes sucks.
Usually this is caused by dropped frames. Scene detection avoids that to a large degree. Why does it suck? It makes editing so much easier IMO.
Okay. But can I capture my tape with premiere pro CS4 using split scene detection and have a MPEG output?
No, that is where HDVSplit shines. PR does not support scene detection or previews during capture and often generates OOS (out-of-sync) errors, while HDVSplit handles that fabuously for free.
Anyone got a solution for this: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=llHhATOPPWI
Footage on tape is fine. Problem comes with capturing to PC.
- Capturing with CS4. No black flickering. Audio out of sync because no split scene / bad frames.
- Split scene capturing with HDVSplit >> black flickering problem.
- Split scene capturing with Vegas >> black flickering problem.
That seems to be caused by the artificial lighting and the US frequency of 60 Hz.
Looks like the 50-60 Hz problem.
Workaround: establish which of these 'problem' scenes you want to use and capture these with Premiere using in and out point to avoid the out of sync.
Thanks for you support all.
But I don't understand why it's a 50-60 hz problem.
I have a Pal camera. When I capture my tape with HDVSplit I can't select a 50 hz option or something.
When importing the files in premiere I select the HD 50i option.
When using a PAL camera in an NTSC country or an NTSC camera in a PAL country, artificial lighting will give these results.
The 50i setting is correct. Nothing more you can do about it.
Lol. That's pretty funny.
Because the artificial lighting uses 60 hz in the united states my camera records some black flickering. So I had to buy a 60 hz camera in united states for best results?
What if I used 25p instead of 50i. Did I had the same problem?
No would not make a difference, changing the shutter speed to 60 might have worked.
When I connect my camera to the television (video-out camera >> av input tv) and I watch the footage on television (normal PAL TV) I see no black flickering. Totally nothing.
So it gets in the footage while capturing. Ain't that strange? Shouldn't there be an 50 hz or 60 hz option in the capture program?
