    I'm making a video mostly of still photos. The problem is, when I export the movie from FCE, either in my Mac or in the TV, all the photos "flicker" when there is some ken burn effects present.

    I even used the anti-flickerng filter, but to no good results. It looked the same.

    Anyone knows how to fix this problem?

    Any help is greatly appreciated.:)

    Can you post the exact and detailed CLIP, SEQUENCE and EXPORT settings?

    Have you used an interlaced sequence setting or a progressive one? Have you de-interlaced during the export?

    - First, the timeline in which the video was done was in AIC.
    - The export setting where using QuickTime Conversion in QuickTime Movie Format

    Then I clicked in Options and selected:
    - Compression Type: H.264 (Also tried with AIC)
    - Quality: Best (In AIC used 720p)
    - I also made a try using a slight Blur Filter, to see if it worked reducing the flickering.
    - As a final try, I exported as a QuickTime Movie, without any conversion, and used iDVD to burn to a DVD.

    In the TV I watched the movie from the DVD and from the exported QuickTime Conversion file, using my Apple TV and my PS3.

    The photos come from a RAW file, and I re-sized them to fit 2000x2000 pixels. I also gave them a slight blur.

    As for your last question, I'm not sure what you mean with interlaced or progressive.:eek:

    Thanks for the help.:)
