Green line in the bottom of the clip..Why?

Hallo DViusers, this is Stefano, (my first post here) and i'd like to ask you what does it mean the green line in the bottom of a clip in the timeline when i import the m2t!I noticed that those strange line appears when in the end of the clip there's a drop!When i capture the m2t with vegas i've never read about any dropped frames on the display!
I'd also let u know that i'm capturing those files with a deck or a Fx1.Same results!

thx a lot and happy 2 join your community!

Welcome, Stefano! I do not have an answer, but wanted to say hello and welcome you to our board!

Since is usually bit quieter here on Sunday mornings, getting a response may not be as fast as usual, but I'm sure someone will jump in eventually!

Is this footage HDV?

This is only in the editing software, NOT in the raw footage correct? i.e. nothing could have got messed up during your capture?

Have you got your project settings matching your video? That would be something Id be checking.


If I watch my HDV footage afer I capture with CAPDVHS (excellent and free video capturing program) and I watch the footage on Win Media Player there is the green line at the bottom of picture. But after I begin to edit in V8 with appropriate project settings, I dont see the green line.

Cheers

Jamie

I never had the green line problem until I went from 8.0B to 8.0C last week and now I have it

When I capture hdv, it is at the end of the clip where there is a small amount of the first part of the next clip. (I have always had the issue with part of another clip being present when capturing hdv, and routinely trim clips that I intend to use to eliminate this). I have found that in the case of the clips with the green line that trimming away the unwanted part, causes the green line to disappear and the clip to play correctly.

I have not yet tried footage captured with 8.0c in a production, so at this point that is all of my experience with this problem. Also it is not every clip that shows the green line--I would guess about 1/3 of them .

Waths up WILL?Yep i can confirm you that about 1/3 of clips show this issue to me 2.....
Pretty bad,so what i usually do is to trim exactly like you the last frame with the guilty green line....
Anybody else has any suggestion?
