Pixels sparkling all over

Discussion in 'Professional Video Production' started by James Masterson, Aug 6, 2003.

  1. Recently went on a cruise. Got great video, however, the first 20
    mintues of 2 MDV tapes have massive amounts of square pixels sparkling
    all over the playback screen. I am editing on the PC. 1) Is there any
    way to "clean up" this problem after the fact? 2) What may have caused
    it in the first place? Three other tapes were perfect. Used Maxel MDV 60.

  2. You could try reading the tapes in another camcorder or deck
    and hope that the errors are occurring during the read process
    rather than being a result of dirty heads or bad tape or some
    misalignment when they were written.
