Wierd pixel reaction

I was filming this with my canon rebel T4i, I also downloaded the latest Quicktime and made it my default player. I imported the files but when i play them on the timeline, the pixels of moving objects in the footage seem to glitch and delay. Any ideas?

    It would be super useful to see what you are talking about.  Do you see the ssame bahavior when you RAM preview the footage in a composite shot?Also, what are your system specs?



    Graphics Card:


  • Windows 7 

    AMD Six-Core processor

    GeForce GTX 760

    In the first composite shot in the video, it shows that when I reset the playhead from where it was positioned in the middle of the footage, it retains that frame and when I play it it dissolves into the rest of the footage in a glitchy way. The second shot is an example of some problems I've been having with footage being generally skippy, even though I used the ram preview. No worries, it's just that I downloaded this on a new computer I got so I'm just working out the kinks.    https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=v1yoN4YW8ZA

    This looks like a problem with decoding the footage... Did you convert the files in any way prior to import? Also, does this specific file play back correctly in QuickTime outside of HitFilm?

  • No conversion that I know of, but I did manage to fix it by converting the files to MP4.
