I was given a short 5 min video to edit, stabilize some shaky footage, etc. The file was transfered from a camera (Possibly Nikon) to a Mac, then burned to a dvd.
I downloaded the MP4 file to my drive.
When I play it back from the time line or source monitor it starts out smooth & clear, within 5 seconds it pixelates, then pops back to smooth & clear, then pixelates and so on.
If I play it on WMP, it plays fine. No pixelation
The video is 960 x540, 29fps.
The sequence setting I chose is as follows;
Edit Mode: DSLR - I have no way of knowing if the file came from a DSLR or a Point & Shoot
Timebase: 29.97 fps
Frame size: 1920 x 1080
Display format: 30fps drop frame timecode
Can someone tell me what is causing my pixelation and how to fix it?
My PC is pretty new with 12gb ram, i930, 2 raid 0, WD Velo OS drive, 4 tb storage and is optimized to use CS 5.5
All help is appreciated.
thought I better bump this before it gets lost.
Also wanted to add another question...
The edited video will be delivered on a dvd. With the 960 x 540 size viewed on a 50" tv, how will this look? Am I going to see some dinky little video?
