Error Code: 

Picture Stutter

Description:

"Picture Stutter" occurs when an image sequence lacks motion blur.  Inter-frames or portions of frame segments repeat in a short span of time. 

Impact:

Picture stutter impacts the Technical and Content Quality of the asset. Customer experience will be adversely affected if on screen motion appears “jerky” or unnatural.

Severity Structure:

FYI

N/A

Issue

On screen motion is not smooth as expected, but instead, appears to jump or “step”. 

How to Prevent:                          

Shoot at the frame rate appropriate for the amount of action.

Avoid frame rate conversions whenever possible to minimize the risk of introducing post processing stutter.

Solution:

Apply motion blur or frame blending to reduce the effect of stutter.  This can soften the image, so it’s important to find a compromise between smooth motion and a crisp, in focus image.
