    video pixelation

    Jay Knobbe Level 1

      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?
