Hello Blender community, my name’s Jonny and I’ve been using the program for half a year now, so I’m fairly new to video editing and such.
Recently I bought a Sony HDR-PJ200 so I could practice doing some video tracking in Blender and I encountered a problem such that my videos become distorted intensely when put into Blender’s VSE and clip editor, however, they playback perfectly fine as a normal video in windows media player. I tried rendering the video file into multiple images instead, wasn’t too sure how much I should change the frame rate but doing that didn’t appear to change much other than making the images blurry.
It’s strange because also when I zoom into the clip in blender the image changes from stretching the pixel colours into straight lines, to making them uber blocky when zoomed out.
Oh and it isn’t just with this one video that I have, for some reason it occurs with all the videos I recorded on the Sony video camera.
If anyone has an idea or suggestions or links to a thread that reads as to why this happens I’d be pleased to hear back from you. I’m very anxious to get this working!
