Expert:  David replied 1 year ago.
Hi, my name is David, and I will do whatever I possibly can to help answer your questions.

Is there wavy lines in the source video, in Final Cut Pro, or only when played from DVD?

Sincerely,
David.
Customer: replied 1 year ago.

In Final cut Pro when viewing and when put on another monitor

Expert:  David replied 1 year ago.
Hi,

Is it footage from a camera? What camera? Does it look wavy on the camera viewfinder if played back on the camera?

Sincerely,
David.
Customer: replied 1 year ago.

The camera is a Sony handicam HD, the footage only gets the lines when in final cut pro not on a camera playback.

Expert:  David replied 1 year ago.
Hi,

Then when capturing the footage you should try other settings.

Do you use Final Cut Pro to capture the footage from the camera, or do you use another means?

Sincerely,
David.
Customer: replied 1 year ago.

I have been using copy file to computer into a folder

Expert:  David replied 1 year ago.
Hi,

Does that mean you just use a Finder window, then drag and drop into Final Cut Pro.

Or do you put them in another folder, the go to Final Cut Pro and choose File Import?

Sincerely,
David.
Customer: replied 1 year ago.

I put it into a folder then import file.

Expert:  David replied 1 year ago.
Hi,

Which version of Final Cut Pro are you using?

Click Final Cut Pro - About Final Cut Pro.

Sincerely,
David.
Customer: replied 1 year ago.

Final Cut Pro 7

Expert:  David replied 1 year ago.
Hi,

You mention the viewer showing wavy lines, what about when you put a clip on the timeline? Is the clip wavy in the canvas too?

Sincerely,
David.
Customer: replied 1 year ago.

No just the camera footage

Customer: replied 1 year ago.

No just camera footage

Expert:  David replied 1 year ago.
Hi,

Well then it should also be OK when you export, have you tried export some timeline yet?

Sincerely,
David.
Customer: replied 1 year ago.

Yes


 

Expert:  David replied 1 year ago.
Hi,

So the only place it looks OK is in the Canvas?

Have you tried changing output settings?

Please try using QuickTime conversion rather than regular output, see here for more:

Let me know how it goes.

Sincerely,
David.
Expert:  David replied 1 year ago.
Hi Landon,

I am just following up to see how things went. Did the export function work properly with your footage?

Feel free to ask any other follow up questions, or let me know if you still need help on this one.

Yours sincerely,
David.

  • Hi John, Thank you for your expertise and, more important, for your kindness because they make me, almost, look forward to my next computer problem. After the next problem comes, I'll be delighted to correspond again with you. I'm told that I excel at programing. But system administration has never been one of my talents. So it's great to have an expert to rely on when the computer decides to stump me. God bless, Bill Bill M. Schenectady, New York
