Hello, I'm relatively new to DV and recently installed version 9 after coming from 8.2. I've looked around on the net for problems regarding this issue and have basically hit a wall - the problems that most people have had were with the same anomaly I've been trying to deal with.
Finalized file has a bar at the top of the video that flickers on and off. The entire frame will do this as well randomly throughout a clip.
Along with the above, say I apply a LUT and grade it, then render. In the final file the video flickers back and forth between the graded footage and the stock footage.
-- I haven't had any noise issues or anything of that sort, just random flickers --
Possible Solutions I've found and (or) attempted:
Upgrade to the latest Cuda Drivers - 5.0.35
Disable SLI (tried rendering with 1 GPU and still had problem)
Check frame rate to make sure the master matches the file
Tried rendering as multiple filetypes
Disable all audio
* there might be some others but they don't come to mind right away, what I did find is that a lot of the macos users that had similar problems needed an OS update.
The footage was shot on a 60D, 1080p @ 24fps as a .mov
The media rendered, was rendered to a .mov along with a .#res file as well.
I've included my project settings below - feel free to point out anything that seem obviously out of place
Along with that, here is a clip of the actual problem.
NOTE: The flickering at the end of the video is not the candle. You can also observe the bar at the top of the frame that spans horizontally while flickering.
