I work for a broadcast news organisation so frequently have various formats I have to whack on my timeline for evenntual broadcast in 1080 50i
Since updating PP my any 25p 50i mp4 file I download looks like it's lost a field or has the wrong frame rate. This occurs even in the preview window or if i put the same clip on the timeline. However, If I convert the exaactly same file to a 50i .mxf (any type) via Media Encoder and then import the new file into PP it's totally fine.
It's very strange it's only happening since the last update (as far as i can tell) and strange that the files look jittery even in the preview window so it's not a sequence setting thing. Any ideas?
here's a link to the same file (original mp4 and converted mxf) if it helps in any way
I should add the above is on the PC version of Premiere Pro but I just tested on a Mac running PP 14.3.1 and did not see any issues ... though this time, not viewing on a broadcast monitor so can't absolutely check for any field issues.
Hey Steve thanks so much for the reply! I actually work in 7's london bureau.
I was on 14.7, I just rolled back to 14.6 but the issue seems to remain. I've tried changing all the field settings in the Interperate footage window and a few other tricks but nothing helps. It's very strange. I don't understand why it's only happening with these file types.
Here's a link to the same clip but this time after i've exported as an .mxf via PP rather than media encoder
I should add, Although it's difficult for me to tell exactly when this problem started as we get so much garbage vision from agencies the only thing I can think that's changed was the upgrade from 14.6 to .7 but now i'm also confused that rolling back hasn't fixed it
