I tried creating better quality TIFF files but the resulting wmv files were still jittery.
The file format of your rendered max sequence will have
no bearing on the smoothness of playback of your exported video.
You should render your max sequences to a high quality, full resolution
uncompressed image format.
What is the intended frame rate of your max render?
What is the frame rate of your Premiere sequence?
What is the target frame rate of your exported .wmv?
Many thanks. It was down to the fps. I couldn't find where the setting was to change the fps for the sequence. I eventually found it and also created a custom sequence with 30 fps. My fps from Max is 30 but when I first imported into Premier it came in as 25 (not sure why?). I also originally set up a standard widescreen sequence that was 29.97 fps. Now everything is at 30 fps it seems much better.
The playback is not perfectly smooth but much more acceptable. Are there any other settings when I export from Premiere that will help to make it smoother (e.g. bitrate/max render quality etc?) (I am completely new to Premier Pro).
When these are complete they are going into a Powerpoint. I find that no matter how good the wmv files are there is still some "jerkiness" in playback in PP. Any tips on this?
