Where and how are you viewing it when you see the lines? Encore? VLC or WMP? What's your final destination for the video?
The movie was rendered to Encore... and from Encore burned onto a DVD disk and watched on both a computer and TV.
I can see the lines when I view the movie from the folder from where the M2v video was rendered in Premiere.
....As well as when I view in from a DVD on TV, and a DVD on computer.
I first noticed them when viewing it from a 32 inch LCD TV monitor.
The lines are just in that one clip (that I've noticed) and I've looked very hard.
WMV when watching on computer. DVD player when watching on TV.
Also when I watch it from Premiere, the rendered movie, I see the lines in the source window. Not the original clip in the project window, though.
I must stress that I only see it in that ONE clip. There are 60 or more tif sequences among many mpegs in the timeline.
That ONE clip renders in this strange way with the lines.
Is this the only clip that has that much cross-frame motion?
What is the playback quality for your Pr sequence set to? If Draft, then Pr is reducing resolution and that's why you don't see the lines in the Program Monitor.
I don't know what the definition of cross-frame motion is, there are many clips in the movie(over 100 easily) with similar motion but no other has those lines.
In fact, below is a cropped still from a clip that is 2 clips earlier in the timeline(separated by an insert shot) . It is where the chair first starts spinning and it has no lines.
The only difference between the 2 clips other than small visual differences is that one is 41 frames(tif sequence) and the other is 13 frames(tif sequence).
The one that renders with lines is 13 frames.
I could change the 13 frames to 40 or so frames and place the addition frames under the next clip so they don't render. Maybe the problem is related to the clip size, for some odd reason.
Below is a cropped still from the same mpeg2 render. It is a different clip, very similar looking clip, but rendered with no lines.
Where is playback quality for the Pr sequence set? I don't see it under properties.
Found it, I have automatic quality set. I can zoom in to 400% and there are no lines.
The problem was those tifs in that tif sequence were 'interlaced'. In Premiere I didn't even see the fine lines in an extreme zoom. When I opened the files in Photoshop and zoomed in I could see them clearly.
Every other tif sequence in the movie was created from 'non-interlaced' tifs. This tif sequence was interlaced(it slipped by me). When it rendered it added to the thickness of the lines making it very noticeable.
Curious how this happens as I sometimes get those lines. Usually when I make a frame from a clip
I see the lines and if I was to print it as a photo they show.
Are such clips used in a movie to remain non-interlaced or laced? And for photos are the frames to be interlaced?
To render a still frame from a clip without the tiny horizontal lines....File>Export>Frame>Settings>under Keyframe and Rendering CHECK Deinterlace
When rerendering the frame in Premiere the lines will "double" if they're there to begin with, like in an interlaced still.
