    Premiere Pro CC Export Resulting in Massive Compression and Artifacts/Pixelation


      Exporting a small motion graphics project from Premiere CC to a H264 file.  Premiere estimates a file size of around 60 MB, ends up at about 1MB with pixelating and artifacts.


      When I take the same project and export through Media Encoder, Still compresses down to about 3 MB but looks much better (no artifacts). What is the difference? I'd rather not mess around with opening Encoder.


      FYI, the same project opened back in Premiere CS6 estimates about 50MB, exports to 2MB, but looks clean and has no artifacts (looks the same as Premiere CC + Encoder but much better than Premiere CC direct export).


      Anyone know what's going on?
