It leaves the resolution to match the source, all resizing options are within the next level products.

Thanks David. Your active participation in this forum speaks very well for you and your company. I wish more companies were as diligent. I have recommended your products to a number of people. You are a major reason why - and of course the usefulness or your products.

Strangely, the flicker only occurs on the blue sky painted background. This makes me wonder if the problem is the aliasing of high frequency spatial information that David Newman mentioned. If that's it, what can I do to fix it?

Added note: If I view the footage as HDV, I don't see it. When I view it after converting to Cineform, I see the flicker. If I put the HDV footage on the timeline, I don't see the flicker. Apparantly something is happening when I convert to Cineform.
Mystery solved - The culprit was the Auto Levels filter by Mike Crash. I found that any camera pans with certain backgrounds will cause this if I am using the Auto Levels filter. I'm going to try it with HDV footage to see if I get the same result.

Wow- good detective work!
It's amazing how many sources of potential mischief are out there.

I hate to ask these kind of questions as it exposes my ignorance, but "What is Auto Levels filter by Mike Crash".

Thanks,
John Rich
