Hi. I have looked at other threads but am confused. I have imported some video clips into the PrE 11 Editor. When I play them through the Editor they are fuzzy/pixellated. When I play them though the Organiser the quality is much better. What is the reason for this? Is it something I have done?
The video was taken with a Canon Legria FS22 camera. Image is SD quality not HD. It was imported as DV PAL 25 frames per second. Frame size 720x576. The manual says the camera is using MPEG-2 compression.
The PC has 64bit with 8.00G RAM. Operating system is Windows 7 Professional incl SP1. Chip is Intel-R i5 -3330 operating at 3GHz.
The videos were imported using get Media with the Videos from FLIP or Camera Option
1. Do you see a red line on top of the clip on the "Expert" mode? Check the project settings (Edit -> Project settings). If this is not PAL DV - Go to File -> New Project and manually set the project to PAL DV Standard/Widescreen from the "Change Settings" button
2. If all this is alright, right click on the monitor and set the playback quality to Highest.
Also, is there a yellow line above your clips on the timeline in Expert view? If so, you need to render your timeline (by pressing Enter on your keyboard or clicking the Render key).
And, as VDO says, you can set the quality level of your playback by right-clicking on the Monitor panel's playback window.
That is called pressing F1 to bring up the help file... or, to read outside the program
