Using FCP7 I’ve been working on this project for several years using the same camera. Just recently placing newly shot footage in the Viewer (no problems) becomes wavey and with moray patterns when it goes onto the principal sequence/timeline. Either way, dragging from the Viewer or using the Canvas-onto- sequence method the new footage has this problem.
And other sequences I use to make rough cut footage for the principal sequence have this problem too. All sequences prior to last week are affected.
Now…this problem does NOT occur when I create new sequences in the Browser of this project…the footage is OK when I move it to Viewer-NEW sequence/timeline.
I cannot bring New footage into existing sequences without it becoming wavey moray patterns.
