    Last Pixel on Movie-Edge is Funny Transparent

    AtonMusic Level 2



      After converting a MOV to a TIFF Sequence I am getting those STRANGE last-edge-half-alpha pixels.


      Please take a look at this here image:


      It displays a (from right to left) a RED AE Background. Then comes my movie. Note  how that first pixel row is only half as opaque as the rest of the pixels.

      If I duplicate the layer 5 times I can get rid of it.


      Does anyone know where that is coming from !!!


      Thanks in advance


      PS - THIS applies to ALL 4 outer pixel rows of the movie...

          Rows or columns? Your sample shows columns. This could be explained if the comp is rectangular pixels. More detail about the project would help trace the problem.

            Hi Rick,


            thanks for writing !


            This problem is deriving from sub-pixel positioning. Meaning that if i.e. the anchor point is set to any value which is not a full pixel,

            i.e. "960.3" - the outer rims of the image are looking that way.


            Is there any way, aside from sticking to whole pixel-values, to remedy this issue!


            I am motion-tracking the footage and sticking to whole-pixel-positioning wont yield a perfect result.

            After motion-tracking and then stabilization I am, of course, winding up with cut edges and since I dont wanna scale the footage, I dup. the current footage

            and move the dup. back or 4wards in time by one or two frames to cover the gaps. That is where this edge becomes really annoying !



            My Project:


            Footage = 19208x1080(p), 29.97, H264 Canon5DMKII converted to a TIFF Sequence.

            Pixels are set to Square which is the way they came off the H264 Footage!

            The project is set accordingly.


            Perhaps I was unclear pertaining to rows:columns;

            Basically, what is happening is that the outer rim pixel on all four edges is half opaque.

            I am including a screenshot of the upper left corner.


            Thanks for any help !

              THe problem is 100% Sub-Pixeling !


              My mistake for NOT reading the F++++ Manual
