    PPro CS5 Pentax K7 footage export problem

    Nathan J Parker

      Hello,

       

      I've edited a video in PPro CS5 with footage from a Pentax K-7 HD DSLR. I dont have a lot of experience with HD DSLR footage, but I have worked with 7D footage with no problems at all.

       

      The problem I am having is that when I export the video using H.264 everything looks great on my Mac Book Pro. When I upload it to Vimeo and watch it it still looks great, and it looks fine when I play it on my Iphone 3GS through the Vimeo app., but every other computer Ive watched it on or had co workers watch it on there are strange glitches that are very obvious. It looks like horizontal bars, not like you would see with interlaced footage, but horizontal bars that look like the shot is arranged incorrectly or something to that effect and it increases as motion increases.

       

      I have made several time lines with different properties, and exported each of them out a few different ways. Only two of the options show up fine for me no matter how I view the footage, unless its on another computer. The rest are bad for me and everyone else

       

      Just to put it out there, I know it is not an internet connection problem.

       

      Here are the footage settings:

       

      AVI
      1280 X 720 (1.0)
      30fps
      progressive
      1m20s
      32000 HZ
      Stereo

       

      These are the source/ outputs that have been successful for me to view on web, hard drive, and Iphone but not for anyone else at all.

       

      Source:
      used preset under DSLR heading for 720p 60

       

      1280X720
      59.94 fps
      progressive
      1m20s
      48000HZ
      stereo

       

      Output:
      NTSC
      1280X720
      29.97fps
      progressive
      AAC
      192kbps
      48KHz
      stereo
      VBR 2 pass
      Target 6.00
      Max 10.00 Mbps

       

      the following setting are the first settings i used with successful viewing on my end

       

      Source: just set timeline using HDV 720p 30fps preset
      1280X720
      29.97 fps
      progressive
      1m20s
      48000HZ
      stereo

       

      Output:
      NTSC
      1280X720
      29.97fps
      progressive
      AAC
      192kbps
      48KHz
      stereo
      VBR 1 pass
      Target 6.00
      Max 10.00 Mbps

       

      render at Max depth and Max render quality checked for every attempt

       

      have also tried timeline settings to match footage but when i went to export footage it went to export for Iphone...

       

      I have Production Premium CS5
      my scratch disks are set to my external HD

       

      I use a Macbook Pro
