I just snagged the trial version... as long as there's no limitations to it, I should be fine.

Have you viewed your output with VirtualDub? If all viewers look the same, it's probably not a conflict with Media Player. Good to discount that one first.

Only have WM and VLC which doesnt play CFHD files.


But again if I come back to using Neo 4.3 and windows media the line isnt there?

Narrowing down. Better post it again as a possible bug and give your whole setup workflow so others with similar setups can test it. Need to squash that one if it's there for sure!

David... my system didn't like your project file. Can you give me the settings of your project and sequence, and output settings as well.

David, please work with support, as you have a number of outstanding issues (with this very footage) that others can't reproduce -- this thread is not the place for detailed support. However can report, I have tested this using the same footage (yours), and it does not do it here. I have tried many combinations, max quality on/off, 1920x1080 vs 1440x1080, 3D and 2D exports. Do check you export settings, as maybe the preset is wrong for 1440x1080@50i. I'm running a Premiere beta release, one version earlier than yours (don't expect that this is the cause) but I'm getting an Premiere crash when selecting "Match Sequence Settings", this is not pointing to our code (rather a Premiere error "[..\..\Src\CompilerMixer.cpp-66]"), so it either means I need the release CS5 or the preset is odd. Manually setting the parameters for the export works fine.

David..... as per your settings and with your footage, I am unable to replicate the frame shift.

My output is clean.

If it were me, I would recapture. That's the first link in the chain. I know you get a clean output with the previous Cineform version, but it's a quick task and it may be the gremlin we're looking for.

If not.. then indeed, it may be a bug of some sort.

OK, I did a dopey thing...

Didn't read this thread before I installed NeoHD 5 beta over my existing NeoHD. So I didn't realize (remember) that I needed to uninstall 4. However, I did a "request activation" for 5 and and received an activation key, but it doesn't work. Don't exactly know why - I guess the key is good for v4 only?

What do I do now? Just wait til v5 becomes final and then request activation again? Or do I have to uninstall version 4? Ack!!!

Not too dopey. You can't activate yet as this is beta, we will enough e-commerce for doing upgrade last this week. The recommendation for un-installing is unrelated to activation, it just means we know you have a clean install when new components are added.

David, the NEO4K 5.0 beta works well, but FL is still interpreting 30 fps I-frame only video as 24fps.

Will that little fix make it into the Friday release?

BTW, congrads on the new tools and other things in FL! Really great stuff and very welcome.

Stephen, That is not a FL bug, so it will not fixed as it is your file that way (FL is only displaying the metadata is it given.) If new conversions still do it, than report to support with full details and a sample source.
