Thread: Camera recording with wavy edges

  1. #1

    Default Camera recording with wavy edges

    As you can see from the below image the edges are wavy.

    The video image isn't like this all the time, but when it happens it is quite disturbing.

    Do I just have a bad camera? JVC Everio. Konica minolta lens - f=2.2~85.8mm 1:1.8

    Or do I have the wrong settings in the camera?

    Or is it an error between the videoplayer (VLC) and the particular video format (.MOD)?



    Any help would be appreciated. Thanks in advance.

    Your camera has shot the footage with interlaced footage.(Look it up oif you don't understand that)
    Most playback devices will understand interlaced footage and play it back correctly.
    It will not play back correctly if the player assumes the video is progressive
    It will also not play correctly if you zoom into it within an editor (simply speaking)
    You need to understand how your footage fits into your workflow.
    One solution (not necessarily the best) would be to convert all your footage to progressive before you do anything else with it.

    Thank you Tim.

    Although you're right and I don't really understand most of what you said.

    It gave me some idea of what to look for.

    Thank you very much

    I realised I wasn't explaining it well (it would have taken me an hour and I don't pretend to understand it fully) but the intent was to point you in the right direction.

    Yep, it looks like the result of recording in interlaced and playing back in progressive, or the reverse. It helps to have a plan for the end product so you can shoot in a format that is most compatible. I just go with progressive as my default.

    Thanks guys. This helps a lot.

    At least now I know what's wrong and if I can't correct it myself, at least I know what to Google
