    Serious Flaw in MPE?

    JeremyJA

      I have an issue that would be great if I could get worked out...

       

      I'm using 60i AVCHD footage (.mts), with the appropriate timeline settings in Premiere Pro CS5.5.1. Export settings are to h.264 de-interlaced with default preset settings. However, when I export with the MPE on, the video fails to deinterlace, and merely exports as a progressive scan with the interlacing "burned in", i.e. each progressive frame has interlacing artifacts/lines on it. HOWEVER, if I turn MPE off before I render, the video renders de-interlaced perfectly. But I'm pretty peeved, because if MPE is so great, why won't it support one of the most basic rendering functions out there? This problem was also present in CS5.5.0, and it was not fixed by the update.

       

      For reference, the applicable computer specs are:

       

      Windows 7 Ultimate

      Intel i7-960

      12GB DDR3 RAM

      nVidia GeForce GTX 470

       

      Again, I would greatly appreciate it if someone could help out here. My render times have skyrocketed compared to when using MPE and frankly, I want the features that I paid for to be in the product.

          What are your exact export settings?

            Format: h.264

            No filters

            Multiplexer: MP4 Standard

            Video: NTSC, all resolutions have the problem, 29.97fps, Field Order Progressive (de-interlaced), pixel aspect ratio makes no difference, Profile: any profile, Level: any level

            Render at Maximum Depth ON, 2 pass VBR, keyframe distance makes no difference.

              And now, I am trying to render a project that has fairly extensive color correction done on it. So I keep MPE on while color correcting and toning and such, and then turn if off right before I render. BUT, when I render, the resulting video is filled with blocky green artifacts. Umm, Adobe? Help!!! I now have to choose between green or interlaced artifacts!

                Anyone know anything about this??? I'm getting desperate, I've got deadlines and here I'm stuck with a semi/non-functional NLE that cost me more money than most people spend on a computer! I have all the latest drivers from nVidia, and all my settings indicate that the MPE should be running fine and the rendered video should be deinterlaced, and yet...

                  I can't duplicate your issue here.

                   

                  However, my system is not your system.  You could try either or both of 2 techniques that should otherwise be redundant:

                  1. Select every clip in your export sequence one-by-one and change the Field Options to Always Deinterlace.  You can't change the field options on multiple clips or on nested sequences.
                  2. Create a matching progressive sequence and copy/paste all your sequence items from the interlaced sequence.  You could also do this step in combination with step 1 to get really really redundantly redundant.

                    Thanks a lot for the feedback. Here's the new info based off of your suggestions:

                     

                    Importing into a progressive sequence and rendering to progressive does not work, however, the interlacing artifacts are noticably different than from when I render from an interlaced timeline to progressive with the MPE on. When exporting the way I normally would (the latter), I get very stark interlacing lines, as though premiere is taking the fields and rendering them both as a single frame with no interpolation or anything. Rendering the former way, the frames are more "blurred" together, leading to the illusion that the clip is deinterlaced, however, if you look closely you can still see deinterlacing artifacts (plus there is noticable ghosting). The "Always Deinterlace" works, but I don't like the fact that 1) it takes forever to set each clip like that, and 2) it discards an entire field, so that the quality is noticably reduced. Excuse me, but I could have bought a standard def camera in that case. *I have always rendered de-interlaced at max render quality* and until recently (i.e. CS5.5) it works great. High quality, very good deinterlacing.

                    Also, if I render from the interlaced sequence to progressive ("de"-interlaced), with the maximum render quality OFF (thus deleting a field), I get the same type of artifacts as rendering from a progressive sequence to a progressive sequence. So NOT the same result as rendering using the "Always Deinterlace" option in a progressive sequence does. Therefore, I am inclined to believe that this is NOT a system error (the fact that this cropped up exactly at version CS5.5 and not before is another hint), but has something to do with Premiere itself (remember, I am most likely using a different AVCHD clip than you; mine are .MTS (MPEG-2) AVCHD from a Sony HDR-XR500V).

                     

                    Is there any way I can "repair" the program or something using the installation disks? Just to reset its brains?

                      My MTS clips are from a Sony NX5U.  Your camera records HD to MPEG4; if you have MPEG2 footage then your source footage is SD, not HD.  Reference: HDR-XR500V | 120GB HD Handycam® Camcorder | Sony | Sony Store USA

                       

                      Hardware MPE always deinterlaces and scales in Maximum Render Quality mode regardless of whether the sequence export settings check box is checked or not.  The only exception is if the Adobe Media Encoder gets involved (in some cases).  So if you are exporting from Pr and not using the AME, and if hardware MPE is in use, then high-quality, hardware-accelerated deinterlacing is in use.

                       

                      The fact that you are seeing:

                      • interlacing artifacts baked in where there should be none.
                      • loss of resolution during hardware MPE deinterlacing
                      • software MPE producing green artifacts

                      all indicate to me that you have hardware and/or software issues that are interfering or preventing Pr from doing its job properly.  I don't have any of those issues here with Sony AVCHD files and CS5.5.1, nor do I have to mess with "Always Deinterlace" or copying/pasting from sequence to sequence.

                       

                      Do you have any 3rd-party hardware installed, like Matrox or BlackMagic?  What software did you use to CC your footage?  You say your nVidia drivers are up-to-date -- is that directly from the nVidia web site or from somewhere else?  Regardless, it may be worth a complete uninstall/reinstall of Pr.

                        I don't have any third party video software on my computer (CC is done with Premiere and/or After Effects), and the issue occurs whether I go through AME or not. The drivers are the latest from the nVidia website. I will try uninstalling and reinstalling...

                          This is straight off of the installation disks onto my computer. I tried it twice and got the same error both times. THEN I looked on my laptop (which also has CS5.5 installed from the same disks), and it DOES NOT have the problem. So it must be something about my system upon installation. Is there anyone I can take this error message to see what I can do to fix it?

                            This is an error that results from having the Flash ActiveX control installed.  If you uninstall Flash ActiveX and then run the installer again, you won't get the error messages.

                                  So then if these won't lead to the problem, what are other probable causes? From what I can tell, the program is totally stable (as stable as it gets) except for the fact that it WILL NOT deinterlace with MPE on, no matter what you do.

                                    Also, I just noticed that GPUSniffer recognizing my GPU as a GTX 570, where it's a 470. Is this an issue or a standard thing?

                                      I'm banking on it's something specific with your media.  Possibly they're reporting progressive when they're upper field, or something along those lines.  I'd suggest posting a short sample media clip so that others can take a look.

                                       

                                      What does the project panel report your clips as? Progressive, or upper field?  Have you attempting overriding the field settings through Modify->Interpret Footage?

                                        I'm not sure about that...I know for certain that it is 60i upper field first, and the interpret footage window confirms this. But just to be thorough, here's a clip straight from the camera. It has some well defined edges so you can gauge quality as well as some motion to help identify any interlacing problems if you have any with it. Remember, export settings are essentially "h.264, 1080p 29.97fps preset, max depth on, max render quality on", with sequence settings at 29.97 interlaced, and MPE on during render.

                                         

                                        The clip is up on filemail.com at:

                                          Well, I tried out a combination of renders using your clip, and I'm not seeing any failure to deinterlace here.  Tried both CUDA vs software mode, 1 pass & 2 pass VBR.  They all look right.  (And the clip seems fine, definitely interlaced upper field.)  Here's a link to a zip with the 4 variants in case you want to check it out yourself:

                                          What are your sequence settings?  (I used the AVCHD 1080i square pixel editing mode, 1920 * 1080 | 16/9 | upper field first | 1.0 PAR for my test)

                                           

                                          And, as Jeff previously suggested, do you have any 3rd party plugins / codecs installed?

                                            FWIW, I duplicated Wil's results.  CS5.5 deinterlaced the video pretty darn close to perfect.

                                                  Again, I'm noticing that my system recognizes my GPU as a nVidia GeForce GTX 570 when it is really a GTX 470. Could this be indicative of a problem related to the current issue?

                                                      I think I've got the same situation as yours,

                                                      I've asked the same question before but unfortunately no one answered.

                                                       

                                                      I have no problem with the clip that you provided,

                                                      the clip rendered individually without artifacts.

                                                      but me myself are having problem with mixed camera source,

                                                      like a Sony DV running at 50i, and a DSLR running at 25p,

                                                      when they mixed together and with MPE enabled.

                                                      I got interlacing artifacts on output.

                                                      Also when i mix your 60i video with my DSLR 25p video ( I know we shouldn't do that )

                                                      I'm getting interlacing artifacts on the 25p part of the video,

                                                      which is gone if the MPE is disabled.

                                                       

                                                      There's something interesting that is when you import the same clips into a 60p timeline,

                                                      it renders normally even with MPE enabled.

                                                            Ah. I hate to be melodramatic, but you, sir, are an inspirational genius. Everything seems to be coming together. After several more methodical tests, here's is the new info:

                                                             

                                                            -60i footage DOES deinterlace with MPE on...but IF AND ONLY IF THERE ARE NO EFFECTS ON THE TIMELINE. No color correction, no timelapses/slowmos, etc. Essentially anything that MPE supposedly also accelerates.

                                                            -When effects are applied, even to only one clip out of several in a sequence, all clips render WITHOUT deinterlacing.

                                                            -When 29.97p footage was dropped into timeline with 60i footage, and was rendered together with MPE on, the video DID DEINTERLACE. However, considering the above points, I wouldn't be surprised if in some instances it did not (say, if the progressive clip had some effect applied to it).

                                                            -Sequences with NON GPU-ACCELERATED FX applied (like equalize) DO deinterlace while rendering.

                                                             

                                                            So basically it seems like MPE doesn't want to deinterlace if it's doing absolutely anything else.

It worked on 5.0.3 just fine, it only started up after I upgraded. And again, the same problem happens on my laptop running the same 5.5.1. So it seems to be an Adobe-software related bug. HELP!

                                                                        Does it affect to the rendering time, I don't know.

                                                                        I always try to remember to do that before saving the project, because it also changes the way dissolves behave.

                                                                        They are smoother with MPE software only mode.

                                                                         

                                                                        pena

                                                                         

                                                                        P.S.  If you have not uninstalled AME5, you can use it. It opens CS5.5 projects and  deinterlacing seems to be perfect.

Exporting with MPE off 1) Takes about 10x longer than with MPE on, and 2) gives me ANOTHER bug, which is strange green pixelated areas appearing (usually) in the shadows of my rendered video. They do not necessarily appear on every clip, but on most of them. I have no idea where this comes from, but I assume it's from the huge amount of processing that the CPU is doing alone on the clips and it crashes/messes up something, somewhere.

                                                                           

                                                                          Therefore, I'm kind of boxed in when it comes to work-arounds...ADOBE, PLEASE, PLEASE, PLEASE fix this. I did not purchase your merchandise to get a dysfunctional program for my workflow (not an uncommon workflow either). How hard of a fix can it be? It worked in CS5!

I'm getting my CS5 disks this weekend so hopefully that will at least be a stop-gap until Adobe gets their updates together. I just did file a bug report, thanks (it was the second time though, the first one was ages ago and nothing came of that yet).

As a workaround, if you nest your sequence in a progressive sequence with double the framerate before export the result will be correct. In your case of a 29.97UFF this would be a 59.94P sequence. Keep frame blending off.
