Problem Exporting

I am having problems exporting my footage.

I export the footage, either using Quicktime Conversion or the regular Quicktime export (where it stays a final cut type file), and with both ways the footage ends up choppy. I don't think it has anything to do with my computer because I've tried watching it on top of the line iMacs along with my own and it is choppy every time. Also, the jerks happen at different times every time, so it's confusing.

Does anyone know what the problem could be?

Are you talking about actual slow playback or for interlacing artifacts?

Also, what kind of QT export are you talking about? An intermediate codec, or a delivery format?

The footage skips, I used the de interlace effect in FCP if that has anything to do with it..

Ok, but you didn't reply on what exact format it was exported as. "Quicktime" and ".mov" are not formats, are technologies and containers. If you could get a screenshot of the exact details of the exporting that took place, we can get an idea why it skips frames.

Ok, apparently FCP uses a weird HDV compression for that codec and so it's difficult to playback in real time it seems. Either that, or the fact that your project is a 1080/60i and the keyframes are every 24 frames might be a problem. Your footage is 1080/60i, right? Not 24fps...

Okay well the camera was set to 1080i 60 I think, not 24

should I change it to 24p? (I don't know anything about that and I hear to capture and edit it it's really complicated)

On picture 2 it shows that key frame is forced to 24

try changing that to automatic and see if that helps....

I'm not a FCP user but it sounds like you are shooting in 60i and exporting to
24p

Allright I changed the key frames thing to automatic and it's still messed up. Would it have something to do with frame reordering?

I really need help on this soon guys, can anyone help ?

I'm thinking the problem might have something to do with the deinterlace filter I put on the video?

what are your sequence settings? you should be able to just export to "quicktime movie" and playback should be the same as it is in your timeline rendered.

also do you have the means to upload a small snippet of the footage? like 2-3sec? so we can see what you're talking about?
