I have just tried what you described in your post but playback is perfect before and after rendering the timeline, which leads me to suspect a local problem.
how strange. Can you post system and settings please?
windows 7 64bit
Nvidia quadro 1800
sequence xdcam ex 1080i
Win 7 64
Asus P6X58D Premium
24 Gig of Ram
Quadro FX 4800
Sequence XDCAM EX 1920 x 1080 50i
Files from the EX1/3/350
don't know where to go with this then really! totally puzzled.
Is your .psd file multi-layered? If so, how do you import it into PPro?
What happens when you convert it into, say .bmp?
tried single layered and merged layered. Tried converting to jpeg and png, same poor results.
Are you saying that all kinds of graphics are affected, not just psd files?
Are you resizing the pictures?
PS : is the sequence 1080 50 or 60i?
it's a 50i sequence I'm in the UK. seems to be other graphics types too.
It's getting curiouser and curiouser .
More seriously though, is the problem XDCAM EX sequence related?
What happens in other sequences?
in a 1080P ex project, everything is fine.
Could you please post a screenshot to illustrate the problem?
I'm trying to use a 1920*1080 .psd file (screen grab) in a Sony XDCAm EX HQ 1080i sequence. Here's what's happening:
Import the file, drop on timeline. Red line above file. Play through the file and it's perfect in the monitor. Render the file (press enter to turn line to green) the graphic now plays back distorted and poor quality. Monitor is set to 100% and 100% quality.
Do the same thing in a Sony XDCAM EX 1080P sequence and it plays back perfect, rendered (green) or unrendered (red).
This would lead me to beleive it's an interlacing issue, so try all interlacing options, no joy.
Any ideas please?
What do you have the monitor field options set to - first field, second field, or both fields? Try watching both fields and see if that makes it look better.
hi can't post a screen shot, as it's the machines at work and I'm home now.
Not much point really also as it's fine unrendered, distorted
Tried all field settings on monitor, same results.
