Playback Issues While Editing Captured VHS Footage (Green Flickering)

Hello,

I recently imported some old VHS footage to my computer using the Diamond One Touch capture device. The video file was saved as a .mpg with the following properties:

  • MPEG-2
  • 7.41 Mbps bitrate
  • 720 x 480 resolution
  • 29.97 fps frame rate
  • 4:3 aspect ratio
  • Interlaced frame type

When I imported the file into Premiere Pro and began to edit it, the footage flickered green and jumped around. The audio seemed to work fine. The issue persists beyond the preview screen if I export the footage as well.

My specs:

  • Windows 10 64-bit
  • 8GB RAM
  • NVIDIA GeForce 1660 Super (up-to-date drivers)
  • AMD Ryzen 5 3600 6-core
  • Sequence settings - I really have no clue what's going on here. Here's what Adobe defaulted too when I input the footage: Image Attached sequence.PNG

Any ideas what's going on here?

Thank you.

The cheap USB capture devices can be problematic. Your best bet is to use a Firewire based DV converter. The video below might be helpful.

What does the footage look like if played in a media player outside of Premiere?

I seem to me Premiere is rejecting more and more mpeg files.

If I were you, I would convert everything to Prores 422 HQ
