update project (4.5 to 5.04) / firewire causing strobing

Hey everyone, i edited some HDV footage (captured as DV) on my powerbook with 4.5. I was planning to do grading/effects/de-interlacing on a much faster powermac G5. I transferred the entire project over to the tower via firewire. When i open the project in 5.04 on the G5 i select 'update project' (it can't be opened otherwise i assume?). When i do this all of the footage becomes choppy. It looks kind of like a slow frame rate, or some ugly strobe effect. I know it's not just a playback issue cause i exported a dv movie and the resulting file still had the ugly strobing.

Now the way i see it the problem can only be either:

A. the firewire transfer
or
B. the project update

anybody have any experience with this kind of issue?

I've upgraded DVCPro PAL projects from 4.5 to 5.0 and lastly to 5.1 and migrated them between machines - all without the issues mentioned by you. Short of suggesting to re-render after migration, I can't think of any other solutions off-hand.

HTH,

Ron

If you still have access to the original project file on your original machine try exporting the sequences as XML and importing those into FCP 5.
