New to Paint X. I've been cloning some things in my video. Cloned out a lot of loose hair, wrinkles, etc on about 30 clips.... The tracking was exceptional, and the fixes look FANTASTIC in the PaintX edit window in the FCP timeline.
The problem is, upon exporting, all of the cloned areas moved way off the mark. The exported video showed some of the clone work nearby, but much of it moved quite a ways across the screen. I cannot find a logical reason why this happened.
I quit the app, went back in to FCP and now all of the clone work is far off of where it had originally been....
To say I'm frustrated after 8 hours on this task, would be a terrible understatement.
I did A LOT of experimenting last night. I have not found a solution, but I have new info about the problem:
1) 4k 10 bit footage.
2) I clone a fix in the PaintX Editor and track the clip. Works perfectly pretty much every time.
3) I click the "Save Changes" button and go back to the timeline.
--- About 60% of the time, no problem has shown itself in the timeline (YET).. I can play the clip in the timeline and it looks great... until it doesn't. If I export the clip (or the entire video), the cloned fixes shift out of place on the exported video. Then when I go back to the timeline, I can see the fixes are no longer in place.
---About 30% of the time after I click the Save Changes button (and go back to the timeline), I can see the fixes have already shifted way out of place.
--About 10% of the time when I go back to the timeline, it looks great for a while, but then for no reason I can comprehend, at some point, it stops working properly and all of the fixes move out of place again.
-- When I go back to the PaintX editor, I can see that the entire fix has now rotated as if in 3d space. There is no way for me to nudge the fix back into place, I just have to delete the entire plugin from the clip and start over.
-- This problem is the same scenario whether I have other filters stacked in the same clip or whether PaintX is the only filter on the clip.
-- I am applying PaintX to the high resolution files, not PROXY.
-- The clips have a Linear Dodge Composite mode, set to 100%... not sure if that is a contributor to the problem or not.
