I've pulled in 5 videos and clippled them up to create a 50 second reel showing short segments of each. The video is for an HTML 5 embed on a website so it's at an odd size (235x162).
Everything looks great when viewing the editable composition within Premiere (and I've tried this in After Effects as well), but when I go to export the video ends up blurry no matter if I match the source or fiddle with the settings.
I'm guessing something is going on due to sourcing from multiple video files that are in different wrappers and codecs? If so, why would I be able to edit so cleanly (and render in program), but cannot export at the same quality??
Here's a rundown of the imported videos I've been clipping up assuming its an issue with one of them (audio does not matter, we're not exporting it):
Try 1 pass VBR instead of 2 pass VBR in the encoding settings.
Hope that helps,
Working with dimensions that are multiples of 16 should also help. Try 240x160.
Thanks a lot guys. I had no idea about the rendering process concerning multiples of 4 and 16 since I've only ever done videos in DVD and HD resolutions.
