Has anyone else noticed this? When I play back my GH1 footage in FCP7, in the viewer and Canvas window, the image will sometimes flicker during fast motion?

I'm not sure how to describe it. I see a horizontal line moving up the screen. But when I replay the same area, it's gone and happens somewhere else.

It really only happens when panning the camera I believe. And it may just be something that happens in FCP7 because when I export to DVD and play back the DVD on a TV...the issue is gone.

It also never seems to happen in the same place. When you play back the scene where this line moves up the screen, it doesn't happen again but happens somewhere else where there is panning movement. HAs anyone else noticed this?

Sounds like shearing on your computer monitor. If so, there's nothing wrong with your footage at all, it's just a computer playback issue.

Thanks very much Barry. That's a relief! I thought there was something wrong with my footage.

Thanks again,
