I just bought a new MacBook Pro and I’m having trouble editing video on it (which I have been doing in blender for years) because it messes up the source material.
I have never seen this before. It is not interlacing, because interlacing causes a jagged edge to appear, not mixed up pixels like shown here. Checking the deinterlacing function in blender therefor doesn’t solve the problem.
I have tried several types of files (.dv, .avi, .mp4) from several sources (DV camera, point and shoot camera) with and without interlacing. All material shows this problem. An interesting fact is that the video looks great as long as I watch it at 50%, which means the mix-up happens within 2x2 pixel blocks.
I’m on a 2.4GHz, 4gig MacBook Pro running OSX 10.6.4. Since I bought it last week and software update says I don’t have any updates, I’m assuming my video drivers are up to date.
Any help would be GREATLY appreciated! I bought this computer with smooth video editing as one of the primal usages in mind, and I’d hate to have to start using one of the Big Packages.
