    Resize Effect Problems

    Hi!  Here's my problem

    I have a project :  720x576 in Pal 25p. The original video was HDV (1920 x 1080) and it was converted with the I-link of my Sony Z1 while importing into AVID Media Composer 3.0.

    When I try to resize a shot and I render it, the surface of the image becomes sinusoidal  like it was a problem of interlacing or deinterlacing but more waveform (in a visual sense).

    If i resize it more or less the problems seems to be bigger or smaller but never totally desappear.

    Does anyone knows what is that and how to fixe it?

     

    Thanks.

    Daniele

    Re: Resize Effect Problems

    Many options here: check the Media creation settings to make sure You're not rendering at a low res compression; go to the Render settings and set Effects quality render using Highest quality; promote Your effect to 3D and click on HQ in the effect editor; use the console command setresizetype 9 (need to enter it everytime You relaunch MC; hope this helps.

    Re: Resize Effect Problems

    I've checked avery single think you said: Render Settings on Highest Quality, 3D Effect on HQ, I've tried to rotate of one frame ( as in the link you gave me), I've tried the render option as Interpolated field,Duplicated field,Original Preference.

    The problems seems to be worst then ever once all these things setted up.I got waves everywhere on my image.

    I've started having this problem with the MC 3.0 Version. Never had it before with any version.

    I really need someone to give the solution or I don't know waht to do. The problem is that I cannot resize and I have to (because of a micro in the upside of the shot).

    Is there anyone out there with the solution.

    I'm starting thinking that MC 3.0 has a bug...

    Help!!

    Thanks.

    Re: Resize Effect Problems

    Have you tried capturing the footage to an HDV or DNxHD project and resizing it there? Does the same problem happen?

    Hi Daniele,

    Can you take a screen shot and post it for us to see, or does it only happen on moving video?

    good luck,

    Re: Resize Effect Problems

    Here a screen shot that I uploaded. In fact the screenshot is much more clean than if is on moving video. Much more. But it let you see what I mean.

    You will find here the screen shot.

    Hi,

    Looks like an interlacing problem.  I don't have enough experience with progressive projects or HDV to say for sure what's going on.  Hopefully someone will chime in.

    good luck,

    Re: Resize Effect Problems

    I would try applying a Fluid Film timewarp Input interlace Output  progressive using 100% speed effect on a very short clip (still in its native HDV format) that displays the problem and see what improvement you get.

    To the best of my knowledge version 3 was the first to allow interlace footage in progressive projects.

    If I had your problem on a lot of clips I would complete my edit in a HDV format project. Do a mixdown of the pic locked sequence and edit that into a duplicate of your pic locked timeline. Then apply the interlace to progressive effect to the mixdown and take a night (or two) off as it renders. Check this sequence and if happy with it resize and export as whatever final format you want (720 25P?)

    You're not resizing: You're cropping. Your screenshot really looks like You've interlacing artifacts anyway, none of my previous suggestions will fix that.

    Wait a second....

    elracador:
    The original video was HDV (1920 x 1080)

    If you shot it on the Z1, then you're footage is interlaced, right?  (AFAIK, there is no 1080/25p setting in Sony equipment)

    elracador:
    I have a project :  720x576 in Pal 25p

    Your project is 25p. 

    Why wouldn't you have just brought the footage into a 1080/50 project and then "flipped" to 25i?
