I keep getting green lines on the left hand side of my clips in FCP when i use the time remapping and the motion blur. These are also on my sequence when they are rendered. The video source is in h264 format i have also tried converting the video to apple pro res and had the same problems. Any help would be great!

    We had a similar problem and it turned out to be our video card. I believe the problems went away after the cards were replaced. Since it was a known issue, I think apple replaced them for free.

    I'm not sure why your getting that green line but h.264 is a delivery format not an editing format. I saw that you converted to ProRes but I just wanted to make a note about editing formats vs. delivery formats. Good Luck in getting your issue resolved.

    This happens to me too. I have MPEG2 source that I converted to Apple ProRes 422 and when I open it in Compressor I get a green bar on the left. I wish I knew how to get rid of it.

    I have the same issue and everything is in ProRes(HQ).
    Granted, the original media files were given to me from a graphic designer and are in 853x480 square. Would that be the issue?

    yea... that dumb green bar has been there for a long time... its obviously a prores bug that rears its ugly head quite often... i suspect it may be in 'off resolution' projects... (anything not a preset) but I don't have any hard evidence of that...

    here is one work around that we found...

    if you kick a self contained movie out of your timeline you may or MAY NOT see it... however it WILL appear in any compressions you make from that file... soooo

    what we do is take that prores file and open it in QT, export it as an ANIMATION codec file (yea, its a monster) and then compress from there...

    seems like a stupid work around but that is the beauty of prores.

    at least in my experience.
