    Premiere Pro CS6 and CC with bad quality and incorrect colors in output video

    WilliamTael

      Hi everyone!

      I'm frustrated with my results after exporting a video with Adobe Premiere Pro (both CS6 and CC).

      The color of the video output is slightly different to the original file (i've checked if it was a problem with my video player, but no, i've tested the video with WMP and others with no success).

      Also the video quality is a little bad compared to the original file (i even tried to use frame blending once).

       

      Notice that i'm not using any effects or anything alike, and i'm a begginer in video editing.

       

      These are the parameters from the original video (made by Media Info software):

      I'm exporting the video using almost the same parameters from the original file.

      Here's a screen shot of my settings in Premiere:

      Sem Título-1.png

      As you can see in the printscreen, the settings only differ from the original file parameters in the bit rate (which i raised a little),

      the TV standard (which i have no ideia what it changes), the level of H.264 (which i raised from 4.0 to 4.1, 5.0 and 5.1), and the bit rate encoding (which i've tried using CBR, VBR 1, and VBR 2).

       

      Just for my curiosity...why these numbers in orange are so extensive? I mean, the original video is only 01:35:30:06 in final output (which is correct).

      Notice that i do not use key frame distance (as i don't know what it does).

       

      If i'm doing something wrong, please tell me.
