I'm using Premiere Pro CS3
I've been having a problem with my footage flickering. Especially in the highlight areas. highlight areas with high intensity lighting. I've had 3 people who are professional Adobe certified trainers, and they can't tell me what's wrong with it which at times is really frustrating. Also, when I keyframe a picture and zoom it back to say scale 50, it also jitters pretty obviously. I've seen the same footage on a Mac and have seen the same keyframe used with no jitter at all.

Q14: Explain clearly what you want to do, what you are doing and what the result is
A: I'm filming in SD, editing in Premiere and then output to DVD. Once editing is complete, I go to export > Adobe media encoder(please see attached jpeg 'export jpeg settings'). That's how I make my mpegs. I then import the footage into Encore(CS3) and build the DVD, by first creating an image file. When I watch my DVD on a Plasma or LCD TV, I can clearly see the highlights flickering. Or, when I keyframe a picture to zoom backwards, I can clearly see it jittering. I see the same results from editing on my laptop as well.
Q16: Post details of trouble shooting you have already done to avoid 'did that' responses to questions people ask when trying to help.
A: - Right clicking footage and tried all the different field options. e.g. flicker removal, always deinterlace, reverse fields, ect.
- BCC de interlace effect(Borris Continuum complete 6.0)
- Gaussian blur
- Changed the settings in 'Adobe media encoder. e.g. Upper field, progressive scan.
- tried using different tape decks and cameras to record in.
- I spoke with one of my previous trainers recently and said they tried editing in CS4(the same footage) and by changing the 'interperate footage' options. she was brief and I can no longer get in touch with her to find out more information.
- I've also tried constant bitrate(CBR) instead of VBR when I export DVD from Adobe Media Encoder.
- When opening a project, I've selected progressive scan
- I film using a Canon XHa1 and my filming settings are: DVPAL 16 x 9 50i
- I don't think it's the machine cause my laptop has the same result. I Use HP DV6 1143tx
