I have an mp4 clip I want to use that is shot at 23.98 fps and shows a 3982 kbps total bitrate. When viewed in the original source file on my computer using the Win viewer or VLC it runs completely smoothly. If I then import it into a HF project all by itself (as a test), and have the project itself set at 23.8..... when RAM previewed or exported (at 23.8) it is "jerky". Things that pan in the original are not smooth like they look in the original source file.
Can someone please explain what is happening here?
HF program is on the C: SSD and the source file is on the SSD. Overall machine is "robust", to say the least.
Driving me nuts. I expect to have "issues" when I incorporate the 23.8 source file into a 30 fps project..... but this should be smooth when it is "apples to apples" I would think.
