I'm experiencing a glitch of sorts in my edit project in which the video suddenly scales up/zooms in on the footage, then jumps back out to the set scale size. The issue shows up in the Program monitor during playback and appears even when I scrub through the timeline frame-by-frame. The scale jump lasts for about 8 frames before scaling back to normal. Here's a screenshot of before the jump (#1) and during the jump (#2):
Notice the purple shape in the corner of picture #2, which is the edge of the masked video layer, meaning the scale jump is affecting the timeline as a whole rather than an individual clip. My initial thought was that something was wrong with my transcoded screen recording, but that does not seem to be the case. I'm not sure where the issue is occurring exactly—within the software or within the hardware...or somewhere else.
For additional context:
I've used screen recording clips captured on this same setup in the past and haven't run into this issue until now.
Any insight is greatly appreciated!
Thank you for explaining the issue in so much detail, and sorry about the poor experience. For testing purposes, could you go to Premiere Pro > Project Settings > General, set the Renderer to Mercury Playback Software Only, and let us know if that makes any difference? In not, leave the Render on Software Only and go to Premiere Pro > Preferences > Media and uncheck H264/HEVC hardware accelerated decoding and encoding, and restart the Premiere Pro app. Please note that you may experience a difference in render time.
Thanks very much for responding, Ishan. I tried both of your suggestions, and the problem was still there. I thought I might do a test export of the segment that was glitching, then I scrolled up on the video tracks of my timeline and SURPRISE—a sliver of an orphan transition graphic right there on track 12, leftover from the sequence I'd duplicated for this project. I'm SO embarrassed. Please accept my sincerest apology for creating my own problems and wasting everyone's time!
Again, thank you for helping 🙂
