Wow that device looks um............... ok let's get past that.
Compression is your issue. Ghosting as you call it is leftover artifacts in compression. Compressions job is to figure out what changed and ONLY update that. With a low keyframe setting you'll see these artifacts all day.
Tell us what your compression settings are exactly from color depth to bitrate to keyframe distance.
Thanks for you help.
This setting seems to work best, but still gives me the artifacts problem (just less so than the rest) in the 'Export to Movie' settings:
Compression Type = H.264
Frame rate = 24
Keyframes = Auto
Data rate = Auto
Compression = High
Encoding = Best Quality
Filters = none
Size = 1280 x 720
Sound = None
Internet Streaming = Fast Start
The original AVI file I received had Codec compression.
I have managed to create a QuickTime mov with no artifacts... but that's with a Frame Rate of 12fps.
I can't find Colour Depth info...
Any help will be great.
A simple way to figure out if there's a real issue is to have you export AVI or Quicktime uncompressed. It will make a HUGE video but there will be no artifacts. Then take that uncompressed video back into Adobe Media Encoder and use those same settings. Your artifacting should go away.
One thing you should note is setting compression to high and using best quality is sort of polar opposites. Try your hand at setting those settings rather than full auto.
If this video is going online then I'd probably use:
Data rate: average[768kbit/s] max[1.0mbit/s]
Keyframes: every 10 seconds
If intended for local playback I'd use profile 5.1 and do something like:
Data rate: average[2.0mbit/s] max[4.0mbit/s]
Keyframes: every 2 seconds
Internet Streaming = disabled
What codec is the AVI in?
Generally your first job is to remove unnecessary complexity from the formula. Converting assets to uncompressed does that. So adding that extra step of reconverting the AVI to uncompressed and then compressing that will almost always work perfectly fine.
