I’m having an issue where some of my Studio exports come out extremely pixelated in the color/camera feed for a brief period. Check out this video here. Once we get to 5 seconds in, everything degrades and pixelates until about 8 seconds. It is most noticeable on the far left and middle shot. You may have to download to see fully. Let me know what I may be doing wrong! Exported using the video method instead of image sequence method.
@Andrew This probably has to do with how the video is encoded.
Under the hood, the first frame is a p-frame, and is the frame that the following i-frames sample until a new p-frame is set. Because you aren’t in frame at the top of the clip, the subsequent i-frames are trying to cobble together an image of you based only on the data found in that first p-frame. When it gets to a new p-frame, it takes a new reference set of data (including you standing in), and is able to reference that in the following i-frames with greater accuracy.
TL;DR - Reencode your image sequence into a video starting at a point where you are already in frame, and change the keyframe interval and bitrate options to improve the quality.
Cory! Thank you for both of these excellent explanations. Both versions were very important I’ll trim up the clips and check this out. Thanks again!
