Hey Mitch,


Dropout like this is most likely caused by a bad connection in your fiber / projector setup. I assume Watchout did not go into error nor reported an error, correct?


Sounds like a cliff effect which may occur "randomly" if you're close to the cliff. Heat / moving heads / bad luck can cause this. If you clean the fibers (grease / dust) you're likely to prevent is.


Doesn't sound like something caused by bad media encoding...
