premiere cs6 changes image quality of .mov from d5200

When importing the .mov files from the nikon d5200 to premiere pro cs6, the movement looks strange and there is pixelisation. What can I do about it?

    The first thing you need to do is realize that the monitors built in to Premiere Pro are there for monitoring content only, and that they really aren't reliable to judge the quality of the video.  For that, you MUST get the video off your computer and onto a properly calibrated TV.  This can be done via third party hardware from companies like AJA and Blackmagic, or by exporting to a DVD, Blu-ray or even computer file (which can be played back by a lot of Blu-ray players via thumb drive).

     

    Only in this way can you be sure that you're seeing the video signal accurately.  And only once you are seeing it accurately can you tell if there's a problem.

    Good.

     

    Can you get those clips onto the monitor without transcoding first, and using some other software?  (Can FCP import them natively?  Can QuickTime or any other player access the BM card?  Is there a BM player that comes with the card?)

    For this experiment you want to see how the clips look on the monitor using other software, but without rendering or transcoding.

     

    Report back the results.

    Post the whole frame.  It'll make it easier to toggle between them and see differences.  Right now the biggest difference is the cropping, which distracts.
