Distorted Image in FCE

Postby Anicsi » Thu Jun 21, 2012 5:17 pm

Here we go again with yet another awesome problem Final Cut Express should not be having.
I'm running FCE on Snow Leopard, MacBook 13'' bla bla.

I ran into troubles when encoding a scene that's originally H.264; 480p and importing it to FCE.

That's what it looks like in avidemux.

Converting to huffy, jup, still awesome.

now, when I import it into Final Cut, this is what happens.

Not cool. I tried encoding it in different sizes and formats, and even sent it to a friend who used a different program to convert it, it's always the same result.
The only clue I have is this:

Image

For 'field dominance' (not sure if that's the correct term) it says 'ohne' (without) for all the other files, while for the two I tried to convert, it says 'gerade Zeilen' (even lines).

I encoded different clips with the same settings in avidemux and I never had any problems. Any ideas what the problem could be? i really need this scene, and I've been trying to fix this for more than an hour.
I'd be really grateful for any help. Thanks! *lays down and waits* :bear:

I thought we had rules against interlacism? What is society coming to :V

(protip: make sure it's not interlaced)

Uhm, okay? And how do I do that? In FC or before that?

Sorry for the late reply btw, life's a bitch.

FC is for whatever reason reading (or possibly just re-rendering) it as interlaced. Couldn't tell you why but check your settings on that. You're looking for something like "progressive". Anything talking about fields means settings are wrong.
