    Screenshots using free ware "Shotty" unravels in Premiere Pro

    CLE-Vin

      I'm using Shotty- a free screen capture program- to take screen shots of different pages of a website for a training video.

       

      Shotty let's you choose many different file types to export/save your screenshot as. I've chosen PNG.

       

      I import the PNG screenshots into Premiere CS6.

       

      Once i premiere the screenshots start to fall apart when I play them in the timeline or render them.

      By falling apart, I mean that they appear to lose a tremendous amount of quality and start getting fuzzy as if some funky blurr is being applied to them.

       

      Here's what I've tried.

       

      Media Encoder: changed the PNG's to other file types before importing into premiere 6.

      Photoshop: changed the PNG's to other file types and resolutions before importing into premiere 6.

       

      I don't see why premiere doesn't see this as just another PNG file. (I've used PNG alot and they work just great.)

       

      The problem: I believe is either with the software- shotty- and whatever it uses to actually create the screenshot. Or it's actually premiere?

       

      What I haven't done is actually export snapshots from shotty as other file types to begin with such as JPEGs etc. I'll try that.
