View Full Version : Flicker in DV

Jun 21, 2005, 01:39 PM
My director went to Egypt and shot on a Panasonic DVX100, NTCS, at 29.98 fps. The scene was indoors and since the lighting there is 50 mhz, there is a flicker on the footage that de-interlacing and applying the flicker filter will not take care of. Are there any low-budget solutions to this problem? I have applied several fliters (solarlize, posterize, gamma correction), but results are subpar. Can anything be done in After Effects? A post house quoted us a price to fix it and it was about $1000 an hour to fix. Any suggestions?

After Effects has a filter to smooth out brightness levels. Effects>Adjust>Color Stabilizer.

You may want to give that a try. Otherwise, it's very difficult to get rid of.
