Hi, I edit with Final Cut Pro 6, and as of lately it's been behaving rather quirky. I've got this timeline set up with several clips on it, a few transitions between them, and all of them are rendered. Yet, when I preview the timeline, I'll see these short, 1 frame blinks of the frame just before I made the cut on each clip, and that will blink at the start of every new clip as it plays through. At first I thought this was an issue with handles, but as I scrub through every frame, I find that the blinking frames aren't present, they only show up as this strange glitch during previews. Oh, in addition, there is absolutely nothing wrong with the exported video either, it's just a huge bother during the editing and previewing process.
So... a summary.
Problem: During preview playback, each clip first blinks the previous frame that isn't on the timeline. Both scrubbing and exporting do not have this issue.
Predicted Cause: I added the first clip to the timeline and had the settings converted to that clip so that it doesn't require rendering unless effects and transitions are applied.
I'm wondering if anyone has encountered this as well, and if so, what playback settings might be applied to fix it?
Thank you for your time^^
