TRDB-D5M Camera Example Distortion after no change compile

Hi Guys 

I am using a D5M camera with a DE2-115. When I take the example from the D5m CD and straight program it to the board (as in no re-compile), the image is displayed correctly. 

If I make absolutely no changes, but I compile the project before programming the sof file; the image then is displayed with green noise.  

 

Please see the two attached pictures: Note these were taken with a phone looking at an LCD monitor displaying the output of the DE2-115.  

The first is a more complete shot of the screen and the 2nd is a zoom in on what happens to the edges. 

 

Has anyone had this problem?  

Does anyone know how to compile the project without causing this issue?

I emailed terasic support and the problem appears to be when using a updated version of quartus. 

The original project was created on Quartus 9.0 and i'm compiling with 10.1sp1. 

 

So in the end the solution is: 

 

 

--- Quote Start ---  

We have to create the clock for D5M_PIXLCLK manually for this demo, please open the DE2_115_D5M_VGA.sdc file and insert the command "create_clock -period 30.0 [get_ports D5M_PIXLCLK]" into Create Clock as shown 

--- Quote End ---  

 

See the screen shot. 

this fixed it for me, but they also said this: 

 

--- Quote Start ---  

You can adjust the D5M_PIXLCLK data until you get the correct output, D5M CCD Input clock frequency is about 25Mhz 

--- Quote End ---
