    Help clearing up final video exported file

    lgr701

      I recently upgraded to Adobe Premiere Pro 2.0 from 6.5.  I had a video put together in the old program.  I exported the timeline just like I've always done once it pulled into the new 2.0 version but the final video after it Authored to DVD is not clear - the photos are fuzzy.  Is there a output setting that needs to be changed? and to what? 

      I had exported this same video file in the 6.5 program and it was clear so I know it has something to do with this new version.

      Any ideas are welcome.

      Settings used include:

         Standard 48Kltz file

          Exported with Adobe Media Encoder (my old version had Adobe MPEG Encoder) is that different - the new version does not have this.

          Computer System : Micosoft Windows XP

                                         Pentium (R) D CPU 2 80 Ghz

                                         2.8 Ghz 2.00 GB of Ram

       

                                         Total size 74.5 GB

                                          Free Space 31.7 GB

       

      I also have extremely SLOW render capablilities now and slow export capablities as well.  Help!  Is it my new computer system or the program causing this.  My old system ran the 6.5 version beautifully and had excelent render times.

          It could be a number of things. If what you're saying is correct, you upgraded from 15-year-old software to 10-year-old software.

           

          I understand that you're on a very old computer with very limited hardware specs. But, although you don't say what model of camcorder your video is coming from, even Premiere Pro 2 won't support most modern video formats.

           

          You also have barely enough free space on your hard drive for Premiere to open, yet alone function, and about half the RAM you'll need to get any performance at all out of the program. I don't think I'm telling you anything you don't already know when I say that upgrading even to a new bottom-of-the-line computer would make a world a difference in your editing experience.

           

          What model of camcorder is your video coming from and how did you get it into your computer?

           

          BTW, you do know that Adobe has a Premiere Pro forum, right? it might be a better place to ask this question.

            Thank you for your information.  Yes I have used the 6.5 version for years - made hundreds of funeral videos and it ran so well.  The computer tech I had put this "newer" computer together for this I guess did not know all this - he also changed my video card - I had used Pinnacle for video capture but his changing that took away that feature.  When I went to use to 6.5 version on the 'newer' system it worked fine until I went to export and it told me I had type in the MPEG encoder number.  I called Adobe and found that they no longer supported this program and downloaded the 2.0 version "free of charge".  6.5 ran perfectly on this newer system but this new bulky program obviously is not going to.  I am finishing up a funeral video that I had started when the system went in for repair and was really hoping to finish adding the additional photos and get their copies done up.  No I'm really not computer savy in that way - I've not upgraded because it was doing everything I needed it to do.  Progress is not always what it's bragged up to be I guess.  What program would you suggest that would give me the ability to build more that just a simple slide show - could incorporate video clips, music and titles to give a quality funeral video without spending a fortune on huge things I really don't need?

            Thanks for tolerating an inadept computer knowledge rookie - I don't spend alot of time in that department my job was building funeral tributes for families and that was going so well with what I had been using.

              If I were you, I'd use Windows MovieMaker, which comes free with Windows XP. It's a good, basic program that works with a variety of video formats -- and produces great video as a result!

               

              It also should work very well with your current hardware configuration.

               

              Otherwise, I wouldn't recommend doing any higher end video editing until if and when you decide to buy a more current computer.

               

              But check out Windows MovieMaker. It's a surprisingly powerful little video editor!

                Thank you so much for your thoughts and ideas (and for tolerating a bunch of rookie questions about the computer issues).  I will check into that Movie Maker program (I'm sure I have that disc in my files just never needed it because the 6.5 did such a good job for me).

                Thanks again,

                Lori

                  You can also download MovieMaker directly from the Microsoft site.
