FLUX creating video artifacts

Using flux in GoPro Studio 2.5 Destop Windows 10. Rendered video has distortion (blurring) around subject although background motion is smooth.

 

Camera: Hero 4 Silver (firmware up to date)

Settings: 1080p wide 60fps

 

Workflow: Video imported using Quik, converted to Cineform in Studio, Frame rate slowed down to 25%, FLUX enabled, video exported using templates for Youtube, Vimeo, and 1080p optimized for TV. FLUX export checked in all cases.

 

Artifacts present in all renders. Not there when FLUX is not enabled.

 

Video is taken of snowboarder launching off a jump. The blurring around the snowboarder in the air makes the clip unuseable. I hope I can figure this out. Smooth slowmo shots were a big factor in my purchase of the GoPro camera.

Re: FLUX creating video artifacts

@redstar43083 - If there's a lot of movement in the main subject between frames, the Flux version can look a little jumpy since the software may have a hard time creating the in-between frames. Increasing your frame rate even more may help.

 

Thanks,

Jeff
