i imported a avi file and recorded audio clips to voice over the avi. the original avi file was a screen capture using Camtasia software. when i edited the avi file i had to make cuts and copy and past and sometimes stretch the avi to accomodate the voice overs. so after all is said and done the exported file looks like crap and you can't read the words or make out the transistions. How can i improve the quality of the avi on export? please help
What was the codec in the AVI file? Garbage in, garbage out really applies to video editing.
As Harm alludes, AVI can contain almost anything. Take a look at this FAQ Entry: http://forums.adobe.com/thread/440037?tstart=0
For Camtasia footage, see this article, and especially Jeff Bellune's comments in the linked threads: http://forums.adobe.com/message/2324919#2324919 There are many references to earlier versions of PrPro, but most will apply to CS 5 and later.
