    TV Image Ghosting?

    Why is it that when I'm cutting in a 24 FPS project, everything looks fine, both in my source and record monitors as well as on my external large flat screen TV hookup, but when I switch to a 23.976 project, the image on the TV has ghosting when playing a clip? Source/record monitors still play back fine. It's just an issue on the TV. This has happened a few times before and an Avid restart (or sometimes a full computer restart) seems to resolve the issue but I would like to identify the original cause and figure out a permanent fix for it.

    Re: TV Image Ghosting?

    How are you displaying on the TV? Are you using it as a second monitor, or do you have it connected via a IO box? 24 and 23.976 FPS are always propgressive. Are you getting something that looks like interlace artifacts (combing on the edges)? With progressive material this shouldn't happen even if converted to interlaced.

    Re: TV Image Ghosting?

    The TV is used essentially as a client monitor and the Avid signal goes through an SDI patchbay that is located in a different room. It may be an interlaced issue, but none of the material I'm working with (24 or 23.976) is interlaced.

    Re: TV Image Ghosting?

    We may need to see a picture taken of the screen. First things first, is to please post your profile as Marianna requested. You can see an example by looking at mine at the bottom of this post. If you're going through SDI then you have either something like a Quadro with an SDI port, or an I/O card/box feeding the signal from your computer. What exactly is the hookup?

    Re: TV Image Ghosting?

    This issue was solved. It was an SDI signal being converted to HDMI with a Blackmagic converter that was "wigging out" when changing from one frame-rate to another within the Avid. Switched out with an AJA i/o box seems to have done the trick.

    Re: TV Image Ghosting?

    Thank you for your help! I will add my specs, though I'm usually on several different hookups so never one particular set-up but will add in the info for all.
