FCP/Compressor keep exporting horizontal green lines near the top and bottom mattes. What do I do?

Hi everyone,
I'm trying to export a:
ProRes 422 HQ
DVD Best Quality (90 minutes) in Compressor
Quality all the way high
in Final Cut Pro and/or Compressor (both so far export with the green lines) and so far it has been to no avail. They show up right on the edge near the mattes. Most forums talk about a vertical green line but I am having problems with horizontal lines near the top and bottom.
Any ideas? Thanks.

If you are sending your file via share to Compressor I would try this instead:
Export a QT reference(not self-contained or using QT conversion) file of your sequence to your desktop.
Turn on frame controls in the MPG-2 setting and set all to best. Changing all settings to best will increase your render time greatly. You may want to do a :30 or 1min test.
In my experience Compressor can be inconsistent with HD to SD DVD MPG-2 conversion. Sometimes it works wonderfully and others times it does not.
I have had success with having FC do the SD conversion first.
Create a new 16x9 SD sequence
Add HD seq to SD and render
Export SD and then compress for DVD.

  • HT202879 how do i add a line to the top and bottom of a text box only

    i have a text box in my Pages document but i need to be able to add a line tot he top and bottom only to my text box. can i pleae get some help.

    Hello alegna23,
    To add a line just to the top and bottom of a text box, you will need to add the two lines as shapes.  Follow the steps below to add a line to your document:
    Add a shape
    Click Shape in the toolbar.Click the arrows to see more shape styles.
    Select a shape to add it to the page.
    In step 2, select a line and use the squares on the end of the line to help resize the line.  You can find the full article here:

  • Why is there a green line at the top of videos I shoot on my iPhone 4s?

    I got my iPhone 4s at launch and have been pretty happy with it. One thing that is bugging me however is the presence of a green line at the top of every video I have shot so far. The green line doesn't show up while shooting the video or playing it back on the phone but when I play it back on my computer its there. I've tried several computers and also made sure I was on the latest version of QuickTime and none of that has helped. I don't see any settings in QT that make it go away.

    I need to make a correction it is the upper left for the camera.
    It is also strange if I start recording in this position I can turn the IPhone around while recording without having the green line.

  • Small black bars on the top and bottom on video after exporting?

    I'm using 1280x720 video footage in Adobe Premiere. The problem is, whenever I export my finished project as 1280x720, the newly rendered file has small black bars on the top and bottom.
    These black bars are not there in the Premiere preview, only after the project is rendered.
    The video file created after export is still 1280x720(16:9).
    Is there any way to get rid of these black bars, as they are quite irritating because I make youtube videos regularly.

    Hi, I see I haven't had any responses but these problems haven't been fixed.
    I still haven't been able to transfer purchases from my phone to my comp so consequently have stopped purchasing on my phone.
    I bought a couple of albums recently via itunes on my comp, and tried to tranfer them to my phone via a playlist, but the sync often crashes. One album transferred except for one song, and the other hasn't at all. What happens is that when I autofill from a playlist it often hangs for ages on the first song and then I have to quit the application altogether as nothing happens for ages. Basically, the whole Itunes software freezes. 
    After this I find it hasn't transferred any songs, but they do appear greyed out on my phone, which means it has transferred some basic data such as the titles, but not the song itself. When I try to repeat the process to complete the transfer Itunes tells me that it can't transfer because the songs are already on the phone, but they are not!! I can't click or remove on the greyed out items, so now I have a couple of almost full albums on my computer that I can't tranfer or install on my phone, and a whole bunch of greyed out songs on my phone that I can't play or remove!
    The rest of the problems as above still stand. I downloaded the latest itunes OS updates but nothing's changed. I haven't done the very latest iphone update yet though because it says you need to make sure your stuff is backed up, and I don't want to lose the purchases I made on the phone that I can't transfer to my comp. I'm planning on uninstalling itunes completely and reinstalling but I have little faith that this will fix the issue.
    Can someone please help at all?? I'm so sick of this!

  • I'm using the sync option for when I'm not near my desktop and no matter what it won't work its telling me my account name or password is not correct and it is!

    I'm using the sync option for when I'm not near my desktop and no matter what it won't work its telling me my account name or password is not correct and it is!

    This is from my personal experience:
    It almost happens every time I tried to connect with Sync from my Android phone, the window asking me to enter my account name and password always shows up. And if I enter the information, it'll say I have the wrong password, etc. My workaround is to click the "cancel" button. But it does not cancel immediately. The window will stay on for a while (usually a few minutes), then it'll disappear and start connecting to Sync. And it'll connect and sync successfully.
    You can try this workaround but you have to be patient to wait for the window to disappear.
    I don't know what is the cause of this, but it has happened ever since FF4 for Mobile came out. I have searched around and couldn't find any solutions.

    Hi, Theo1997. 
    Here is a resource that may provide some troubleshooting steps to help with this issue.  See the section related to the iPhone display.

    My iphone has a very thin grey dead line on top of the screen, and on the sides, so in sunlight, it looks as if the screen is smaller than it should be, but these grey lines dont affect my touchscreen or visability, so a simple yes or no, do all of u guys have it??

    Thanks dude, thats such a relief, i always thought that was a fault in my iPhone, thanks for reducing my sleepisness
    Anyway, just to confirm things, i did look closely at an iphone picture on Apple.com, and i did find that thin "apparently black" part i was talking about!
    Peace out guys, and thanks again!

  • My ipod 4th generation has been uncharged for almost 2 months...I plugged it in the charger and now a black screen appears with a yellow horizontal line at the top and 4 yellowish greenish spots at the corners of the screen.Battery trouble?

    So the ipod has been working working fine. I left it for almost 2 months and when i charge it again this is what i see!! It has not been dropped!! The Ipod still works ...when i connect it to itunes it responds normally. Also the ipod produces the charging sound and sounds for notifications!! i tried guessing where "slide to unlock" is so that maybe the touch screen still responds but yet it was useless!! what might be the problem!!

    - Reset the iOS device. Nothing will be lost
    Reset iOS device: Hold down the On/Off button and the Home button at the same time for at
    least ten seconds, until the Apple logo appears.
    - Restore from backup. See:                                 
    iOS: How to back up                             
    - Restore to factory settings/new iOS device.
    If still problem, make an appointment at the Genius Bar of an Apple store since it appears you have a hardware problem.

  • Bought iphone 5C on December. No additional warranty purchased. The phone keeps not working and the top and bottom right corners look melted. Can I send it in amd get a new one on manufacturer warranty? Or what are my options? Thanks

    I Purchased iphone 5C on December 2014. However now it's very difficult to have it working. The screen is constantly not working and the right side bottom&top does looks like its melted? the cover I mean , which maked the phone slide out of its cover. I did not purchase anny additional warranty or insurance so I don't know what to do with it? Can i send it in and they can send me a new one under the manufacturer warranty or what do i do with it?
    I Have alwa had an iphone but this 5c is making me never have one again. Thanks in advance

    Each iPhone comes with a one-year warranty. You said it looks melted? That's going to be difficult to prove that you did not damage it, and it happened on its own. That is the only way it would be covered.

  • The top and bottom lines of my books on iBooks are cut off

    Ive tried changing the font size but it still doesn't work

    I agree with Rick Dee, in addition, as far as I know, you probably fixing the issue by resizing the screen through the graphics cards firmware which actually makes a custom resolution on the screen so that you can view the entire image, but there is a setting
    on most newer TV's called over scan which basically cuts the edges of the screen off for broadcast television but with a digital connection its not necessary. If you turn that off in the tv settings or if you put the screen format to pixle by pixle it should
    resolve the issue permanently.
    If the issue still occurs after you tried the suggestions I provided above, please check your TV zoom levels. You can also lower your laptop to 1280x720 to match your TV's res for the best picture.
    Hope it helps.

  • Green lines on the edge of my video

    I have a problem with premiere pro cs6 every time I export my video I get weird green lines on the left and bottom sides of my video. Does anyone know what might be the problem? I'm working with different aspect ratios and frame rates in my timeline but I heard thats ok. This has been a pain since every thing is ok only the green lines on the edge of my video ruin my viewing experience. Thanks for anyone that can shine the light on this little problem I'm having. 

    I'm having the same problem.
    I have been editing a single interview into four separate videos. Of those videos, only one doesn't have the green line at the bottom of the screen. I'm exporting it as:
    Format: H.264, HD 1080i 29.97 preset
    Video (changes): 480x270, target bitrate 2, max bitrate 3
    Audio (changes): bitrate 160
    Sequence was preset for HD 1080i 29.97, but I changed the frame size to 640x360. I've done this all before and never had any problems and I don't know what to do. I've tried re-editing the footage, but it still ends up with the same result. Any ideas?

  • Black lines at top and bottom of quicktime

    idvd is adding black lines to the top and bottom of my 4:3 quicktime movies... i wouldn't mind so much except that it is adding more at the top than the bottom and looks funny on a regular t.v. screen... any ideas...?

    You might try the "fix-all" fix: close iDVD, delete the iDVD preference file, com.apple. iDVD.plist, that resides in your User/Library/Preferences folder, launch iDVD and see if that helps.
