Saving Video's & Settings

I loaded an MP4 into Photoshop CS4 and edited some frames.

(I'm on a Mac OSX) 


Now I need to save the video file.


I tried to save the video file as an MP4 and AVI leaving detault settings alone.   However no matter how I saved the video it looks all pixalated, or save as a much smaller video size and still all pixalated. 


I have no idea what settings to choose, so how do I save  an exact copy of my video with the edits I made?

    Do you have the option to Save_As/Export as MOV with either the Animation, or PNG CODEC? Either of those should work fine on either a Mac, or PC (with the proper CODEC's installed).


    MP4's are heavily compressed, and when one does a Save_As/Export to MP4, the video will be re-compressed.


    Good luck,

    That's correct. Unless you use the Frames to Layers script, PS will create a video layer. Everything else is handled in the timeline.

    Thank you for that bit of info. I do all my video work in Premiere, so had no clue how PS-Extended handled things. Now I know.
