Can you describe in greater detail what this issue looks like? I'm having trouble picturing exactly what you are describing. The nearest potentially related issue in my recollection would be screen tearing where say the top third (or some other ratio) of the video surface is displaying part of a frame from a different time then the other half of the video surface. Does this describe your issue? Is Aero on or off, and does it make any difference?
I have no other way of playing the mts footage outside of Premiere...do I ?
No thoughts on the other questions, but you can playback MTS files in Windows Media Player (on Windows 7, that is), or another player like Media Player Classic Home Cinema. I like MPC-hc as it is a nice, lightweight, installer-free player; you can even run it off a flash drive.
I would have been happy to post up a small file except the issue does not export.
Not an aero issue.
Issue confined to AVCHD sequence only.
This indicates to me that it is not the source file.
The issue is not "tearing" or "interlacing".
(I could probably easily simulate it with a filter though)
Kind of like this: Image 2 is simulated in photoshop.
I have used a ripple but actually it wobbles like a jelly
Sure, if you could post a test clip that would be helpful.
Do you have a source clip so I can see if I can reproduce it? What field order and frame rate is the drag-created avchd sequence? What field order and frame rate is the P2 sequence where this does not occur? Any time remapping or speed changes applied? What is your monitor field setting?
I can send you a mts file.
How? Where? (80 MB)
Sequences are both 25 fps
P2 is progressive
Tried all field orders in AVCHD Seq.
Issue is confined to part of the screen... not all.
Footage is straight off the source. No FX
Footage is a basic crude camera test shot (not by me) at a Panasonic Demo AG AF100
YouSendIt works for me.
My first thought in reading the original post was the display driver. I see something similar to what you describe even using relatively simple DV clips. I tend to ignore it as the internal Source and Program Monitors are for content viewing only, not for quality control.
If the export comes out fine, this doesn't seem like an issue that should delay you at all. Just keep on editing...
It would be a total freak out for me and my clients, to edit with this un wanted effect displaying as it does.
It only displays in AVCHD Seq and I have never see it anywhere else.
I am exploring this AVCHD "thing" ( "devil spawn") ....so I am bound to find some surprises.
I even had another surprise:.
If you recall...I have posted (ranted) occassionally /often about losing external monitoring when switching from sequence to sequence in same project.
Well guess what...it doesnt happen with AVCHD Sequences. It seems only to occur to my P2 Sequences.
I mixed P2 and AVCHD sequences in the same project and it always happened on the P2 and never on any of the the AVCHD seqs no matter which way I switched.
GO figure that one!
I wil advise Adobe some how and see if they will test that as well.
