Looks to me like your footage frame rate does not match your sequence frame rate, and then Frame Blend is kicking in to try to interpret between existing frames. What is the nature of your source footage, and how is your sequence set up?
The video I am using is a MOV 1920 x 1080 30fps (not 29.97) from a 5d Mark2. I've been importing it into HDV 1080p30 and it's never had a problem before.
Also I notice that the video looks fine on the timeline / program monitor until I render it. Then it goes all crazy.
I think Colin is right. Try right-clicking on the footage and uncheck "Frame Blend" and see if that helps.
Also, if I were you I would use the XDCAM EX 30P preset for that footage - you might find better results. You could also use Adobe Media Encoder to convert the footage to P2 to make the editing easier...I hear that footage can be tough to edit.
I think the 4.2 update started doing some weird things with frame rates--Premiere seems to be much more particular than it was before. I think the problem is that you're taking 30fps footage and placing it in a 29.97fps timeline (I know the HDV preset says "30" but it's really "29.97"). You could either try creating a custom preset with a 30fps timebase, or maybe try interpreting your imported MOVs as 29.97, instead of 30fps. But dimes-to-donuts that the Frame Blending option is what is forcing the blurred, ghosted frames.
Hey thanks folks, problem solved. Frame Blending was it.
I've never had a problem working with the video from the 5d before, my machine seems to handle it well. I'll try the XDCAM EX 30P though and see how that changes things.
(not 29.97) from a 5d Mark2.
That is unlikely, as there are no video standards at 30 fps, and no TVs that show true 30 fps.
