    Ghosting / frame blending issue on clips in Avid export

    hi there, hope someone can help me as I'm completely flummoxed.

    I exported a film for a client and noticed a weird distorted ghosting look on some of the clips. 

    I didn't see it on my working timeline because I was working in 'draft quality' mode but when I change the mode to 'full quality' I can see the ghosting / trailing issue on some of the clips within the sequence.  

    Also there are green dots on some of the clips and I'm guessing that means there might an issue with a mixed frame rate on the timeline? Ugh! I have no clue on how to address this.

    My project is 1080/25p. I shot the footage in progressive mode. 

    I didn't transcode anything. I imported all the clips as dnhd 36, edited the film, then batch imported the clips to a higher resolution of dnhd 185x. Most of the film looks beautiful and really high quality... but some of the clips look look terribly poor quality. So strange as I shot everything with the same camera and settings.

    I did a video mixdown to the dnhd 185x resolution in a new sequence and exported 'same as source' but the issue remains.

    Could anyone please help? 

    Thanks!!!

    You need to look at the master clips in the bin and see what the actual frame rates are.

    Yes it sounds like the source frame rate doesn't match the project framerate, hence the motion adapters.

    You won't see blending on clips that have little motion in them.

    Thanks for your reply Pat! Would this mean that I would have to start the whole edit over again? In a new project with the correct framerate? Confused

    I noticed also (from looking through the bins) that some of the clips were ama linked! And it says in the bin that they're 1080i/50 interlaced! :/ does this mean that for original format is actually interlaced? And not porgressive as I thought?

    Other clips in the bin are 1080p/25 ... how do I find out what the orignal footage format actually is overall

    And how do I make everyhting the same? 

    Thanks,
    Simone

    You can convert a sequence to a new frame rate.  Right click on the sequence, go to modify / format. You would then need to make a project in the format you just modified to and open that new sequence there.  I believe that is the order of operations. Not in front of machine now.

    Really the most important thing for you to do is determine what your final delivery format needs to be.  Then work in that format.  Things can be worked out from there.
