Hi, I'm a PC user and using Premiere pro CS4. I load my video in Mpeg4 format and do my edits (the film is only 2 mins long). I then go to export and choose MPEG4 as standard and don't change any other settings. I then play this video back (once it's been saved to my folders) and the quality is terrible.
When I export the settings come up with:
NTSC 174x144 (15fps) Progressive
Before I edit the video, it is an mp4 1920 x 1080 and 25 fps
Any suggestions please? Is CS6 better for doing this? All I want to do is, once I edit my video, is create an MPEG4 video to put onto my website (that's the format is requires).
Any help would be great (and as not that technical, easy explanations would be stunning!!)
Hi Bill, thanks for your reply.
My website needs MP4 and I've since found out that the H.264 is the right setting I need for Adobe Pro. This has created another wee issue as my website can only take files up to 20MB and the Adobe files are 70-90MB in various settings, so I'm using Prism to re-convert them to MP4 again which lowers thier MB and still keeps the quality BUT they appear too small in my window on my website and I have a large black border around my video. On adobe, I chose H.264 and frame size 720 at 25 FPS which comes out at 90MB I think.
I know this has nothing now to do with Adobe (I think), I'm just popping this in here in the hope that someone may know how I can still retain a large 'surface' area on screen and have a quality video file under 20MB from one that was previously 70 or 90MB.
Anyhoots, thanks again Bill, people like you are great to have on sites like these.
