jagged lines on moving elements in video

well here's a puzzlement,

I recently posted a problem with jiggling video. well, in those same clips, now the jiggle has gone. but when the talent moves, it's as though their entire being gets a serrated/jagged edge, which goes away when they stand still. The appearance of these jagged edges coincides with where the video used to jiggle all over, so i assume there was a codec trying to overcome this problem?

I didn't do anything except download some irfanview plugins.

I have seen this jagged edge problem in past clips downloaded via firewire. can I get rid of it? is this normal for all digital handicams, or is premiere 6.0 not the best for this? thanks fj

I agree. Not having your machine, I will not know what CODECS you have and what control you have over such, but I would look at raising the bits per second on the CODEC you are using to see if that helps.

Best of luck,

well acording to the manual

premiere just accepts the DV coming in thru firewire "as is." can't really choose anything except 16bit audio.

I am wondering if more memory (i have 256 of 2100 in that machine) or a second hard drive would help. - fj

but again, it looks fine on full screen mode! - fj

Yes. And how its stored and played back can be through a CODEC. You may have to figure out how it broke.

Try http://www.moviecodec.com

it's a radeon 7000, altho the video was downloaded on an abit VA-10 thru firewire, it has its onboard video

what is anti-aliasing? I'll have to look that up. how does one access these changes to video card setup? - fj

Antialiasing is the elimination of jaggies

I discovered the cause i think-- by resetting screen size to next size up (1024x 76Cool all the problems went away. --fj
