When I try to create a video with Premier Elements 11 and an MTS file from my video camera, the resulting videos are blurred and out of focus. The MTS is clear and looks good. Plays on any supported video player. Have tried to convert to AVI as well as creating DVD with the same results. This is the case with any input file, not only one. How can I get a focused, clear video?
The answers are in the details.
What computer operating system is your Premiere Elements 11 running on?
What are the properties of these .mts source files
Interlaced or Progressive
Pixel Aspect ratio
What is the brand/model/setting of the camera recording the source media?
What are you or the project setting as the project preset (which should match the properties of the source media)
See Edit Menu/Project Settings/General and the readings for Editing Mode, Timebase, Frame Size, Pixel Aspect Ratio (even if they appear to be grayed out)
When you are viewing the Timeline content in the Edit area monitor is the playback blurry and out of focus?
Or is the blurry and out of focus only in your exports? If only in exports, then we need to dig into your export choices in Publish+Share/.
Is your computer optimized and is your video card/graphics card driver up to date according to the web site of the manufacturer of your video card?
Let us start here and then decide what next.
