    FX in PAL Projects MC8.3

    I have made some changes to an old PAL project and found certain effects render with a band or green or purple or a repeated part of the image at the top and or bottom of the frame, it flickers.  I swithced to HD and it renders fine.  

    I have only just updated to 8.3 from 7.0.4,  I updated the grapics driver, but made no changes to the defaults, I also updated QT 7.6.6.

    Not a big issue as it has a simple work around but I would like to know if anyone else has this issue.  

    Thanks

    Hi Mike.

    Project settings, type of effects and render codec should help, also if you are rendering automatic or have forced it to render 8 or 10 bits

    Mask, resize, fade to colour, I didn't check any others.  

    Rendering on the fly and also rendered to disk as 1:1, automatic bit depth fx processing.  In pal I belive you can only use 601. 

     

    I have found rendering in 16 bit solves the issue.  8 bit has issues.  Oddly automatic subsequently also renders fine.

    Thanks

    Ok, thanks, so if 16 bits solves this just leave it this way

    Well it seem to fix it...  Not sure why it worked, I could not repeat the success of the initial switching between 8 and 16 bit.  Nevermind who works in PAL anyway?
