Hi,

 

We recently rented an Aaton XTR prod for a small project. 

 

Yesterday we got our rushes back. About 1/5th of the shots have a flickering light leak on the bottom left corner of the frame. 

 

Here is an example:

Password: leak

 

 

Do any of you know what may have caused this?

 

Thanks in advance!

Yea, been chatting with you on FB about it. This is the first time I've seen the actual footage and it's pretty interesting. I'm kinda in agreement with the idea of the aaton glow but the fact it comes from one corner AND that it's totally random (as in not all shots) is very strange.
