View Full Version : duplicated frames

11th January 2002, 21:41
i have a problem with a few of my tv captures (pal movies, non-interlaced). it seems that every 15th frame a frame is duplicated. that is constant during the whole movie and not so funny to look at during playback.
so i wonder if there is a filter or something wich can detect and delete a duplicated frame. or something that can delete every x th frame.

thanks for any answer

Decimate filter for VirtualDub can delete 1 of every N,
picking the one that is most similar to its preceding frame.

Thank you for your great VD filters.

Thank you for your kind words! Believe me, it is my honor and pleasure to be able to make things that people find useful. I am here because I noticed what a great group of knowledgable and helpful people are gathered here. And it is a good thing to keep in touch with the users of one's products.

BTW, nice new design (I haven't been there for a few weeks) of your site... Can I vote for a automatic ghost reduction filter for VD? The one I know (exzorcist) doesn't work for me :( .

All the best and I hope you enjoy your stay here (I feel like a steward saying this, LOL).

Repeated frames are normal for encoding a 24fps movie source to 25fps PAL.

i think the film would be speeded up to 25fps for pal playback. but may be if they want the film a little bit longer.... ( longer film = more commercials )
