    Any advice would be appreciated. I’m shooting an over the shoulder training of how to use a software program on an LCD monitor with my HPX 300. I have adjusted the syncro-scan so that the rolling horizontal line disapears but when I’m in for tighter shots and completely focused I get this bright diagonal pattern. Also when panning on the screen I get white flair ups. Any ideas?

    Could this maybe be the exposure zebras?

    Just checked my settings, zebra was off but when I close my iris down to 5.6, I can completely focus to peak without getting that group of diagional lines. Now all I get is a moire like patten in brighter area’s of the screen when I pan.
    I will change the background to a solid dark color and that should help.

    I realise that programs like Camtasia could do a better job but this is a short demo and don’t want to spend the $300.

    Are you viewing the footage proper after the shoot?

    I’m viewing the image on my camera’s lcd screen, have not recorded anything yet. This morning I tried shooting a laptop and found that the iris needed to be opened more, and once again I see these flashes of light on the camera’s lcd screen with thin diagonal lines.

    I checked that my lens mount was secure. I also tried to shoot from a slight angle but the problem is still there.

    You need a high-end large field monitor connected via SDI OR
    View footage in edit suite connected to a Video monitor to judge. Don’t judge what you see in the Cam LCD.

    You mentioned Camtasia being out of your budget for this project. They do have a trial download, I believe.

    I use Camtasia quite a bit. Works great.

    I recorded the computer screen this afternoon, which is a Samsung Synk Master 26″. Recorded in DVCPRO-50 60i and imported into FCP. Same problems as I saw on the on camera lcd. So I went in and changed the peaking setting to -7 which should have nothing to do with the recording but it did seem a little better. Then tried AVC-Intra 720p and I can still see line patterns all over the place.

    Thanks to everyone who has responded.

    ScreenFlow from Telestream is only $99. We use it for computer demos all the time. Works great with FCP for editing. Has l
