Hi I'm hoping someone may be able to help me.
I have used final cut pro for years but as a result of becoming totally disenchanted with the latest version, FCPX I have swapped over to premier pro CS 5.5. I really like it. However I am unsure about why my exported video is not playing properly..
By that I mean when it plays back as a .mov file it has 'glitches' in it. It jumps and flickers and has what look like thick stripes appear on it from time to time.
I am by no means an expert so I will try and describe my process as best I can.
my computer is a Mac 5. I use snow leopard. My version of Premiere is new and legit!
I am editing a video for a client. The video was shot in XDCAM - Sony.
I transferred the footage to my computer via the Sony software XD CAM transfer. It converted it to .mov files.
I imported these in to Premiere.
I edited as usual.
When it came to exporting the file this is where I get a bit lost.
In FCP I would always export a QuickTime file to a set size.
I have tried exporting this movie in the 'Quicktime format' 'Video' codec. It looked terrible.
I then tried the HVR 1080p30 codec..it looked terrible.
Now I am trying the XD CAM HD 1080p30 codec thinking perhaps that's what I am supposed to do, and then I convert that via the Sony software to a regular QuickTime?
I'm sorry if I sound stupid!
I have not edited XDCAM footage before so I'm really not sure what to do.
I really appreciate if someone could help me out.
