I had to have help figuring this out in elements now I am having trouble with pro. My background is my bookcase and I am having trouble with the books being jittery when exporting. In elements I was able to overcome this by selecting HDTV 1080p 29.7 high quality and then changing the settings to 720x 480. A 5min video will export in like 3 min and be about 400 meg. I tried using these same settings in pro and it doubled the file size took about 12 min and still my books we jittery and the text in my tittles were not real clear. I have tried changing the vbr to 2 passes, selecting render at maximum depth, use maximum render quality and use frame. Lending. I have tried. H.264, mpg2 to DVD, and even avi but I cannot get anywhere close to a 400 meg file or get rid of the jittering of my books in the background. Any ideas?
Just to be clear, you are saying I should edit the video in the same format and then simply allow software to edit it down to the 720x480 and it will make it export at a higher quality? Do I need to start all over, or can I change my sequence or add new one with the same ratio? Also how can make sure that text and video do not exceed the safe zones for SD while editing HD since the top and bottom safe zones will be different in HD?
Yes to first question.
Create a new HD sequence and copy and paste across your edit.
How did you make the HD fit the SdDsequence? Well dont do that..OK. It needs to fit.
IN Latest CC version 7.1... you maybe able to just change the sequnce setting.
You need to workout your SD centre extraction for Safe areas. Its no big deal.
Do you deliver FHA? Full height anamorphic SD?
I just adjust the hd fotage to fit in the SD window. It is pretty easy actually. Yes, I do full SD. Why do you think that editing the same video fotage in the wide format is going to make any difference in the output quality? When use the HD fotage I am not changing its quality, I am just making it fit in the 720x480 screen. I just bought cc6. I wished I had known cc 7 was available. Thought I bought the latest version. grrr.
I will give it a try on my short video and see if it make a difference on the output. For whatever reason it worked fine using my method in elements. I have made like 71 30 min videos and 46 5 min videos since May without any trouble, but I hoping to make this pro version work well because of intergration with the other programs Adobe after effects etc. Thanks for your help. Oh, also when I temporarly made a new sequence and copied what I had it did not even come close to fitting the screen and this time in actually played the video, when i put the source one in, like it was supposed to.
Well, I will try and have adobe help on Monday. It actually did take care of the rendering problem by editing it in the same format, but the problem is that it will be very difficult to edit like this and try and make it work with SD using titles. Also, I had SD intros and outros made that used to work find with elements, but trying to use them in HD edid mode makes them small, and when I expand them and try to export now they are jerky while the main video is good. There has to be a way around all this that make it work like it did when using elements. Surely the expensive pro version will not be outdone by the 69 adobe elements. If I can find a soultion to my export problem then I can continue to use Adobe pro because thanks to you guys I have figured out how to use the program in a way that will work but this exporting busniess is just as important as anything because it worthless if you cannot export high quality video.
