    Fluid Film Effect Artifacts

    hi

    I have a project that was shot on XDCam HD (1080i/60).   I want to apply a film effect to the final product.  I've done a video mixdown of the 2 hour segement, applied the Timewarp fluid film 2:3 cadence.  But I'm getting some wierd artifacts (there is a lot of motion, it is a concert event with dance etc). This is the first time I've ever tried this with this kind of footage - always did film effect back in the day on DVCam without incident.

    Any ideas what I can do to get rid of these artifacts?

    Thanks in advance for any help - I should mention I'm not a seasoned editor so please explain in detail any suggetsions you may have

    Stephanie

    Re: Fluid Film Effect Artifacts

    Those artifacts occur where you have a lot of fast motion and/or fine detail in your footage.  Open the Timewarp effect and try setting it to "Blended Interpolated" instead of "FluidFilm".  That should give an acceptable result without the pixel flow artifacts.

    Ok, so just to be clear.  I still choose the Fluidfilm 2:3 Cadence for film effect, but in the motion effect editor I change the type to blended interpolated with source interlaced and output of Film with 2:3 pulldown. And this will still give me a film effect look without the artifacts?  Just want to be clear as we have 7 hours of video and the rendering of this takes forever.... No time for mistakes.

    You should render only one minute just to see if the result is ok for you ;)

    Also: rendering Blended Interpolated takes waaaay less time than Fluid does.

    - and you can halt the render at any time and play what's been completed.  Just type Ctrl-. and when prompted say you want to keep the partial render.
