What version of Premiere Elements are you using and on what computer operating system is it running?
The Windows Media export would seem to be ideal with its smaller file size and usually good quality. What are
the export settings details for that Windows Media export that did not give good results for your
AVCHD.mts 1920 x 1080 source? What was the frame rate of the source AVCHD.mts and was it interlaced or progressive?
With the other formats, we could also explore customization of the preset under the preset's Advanced Button/Video Tab. But
for now, let us see what we can do with the Windows Media export.
Looking forward to your follow up details.
Romano Thanks for the quick reply!
that's a lot of details that I can't give you now as I am away from my work-office that I use Pr E. As soon as I get back to my work I'll give you all the details.
Good morning Romano and others members
I'm using the version 12 of Premiere Elements in Windows 7 service pack 1
And sorry my mistake to previous post , my avchd videos are 1920x1080
here is the export settings about wmv
and here is the properties of videos, as you see the frame rate is 25
I can't find the interlaced or progressive properties, my cam is a sony hdr-xr550. Can you help with that too?
Your Windows Media export settings appear to be incorrect for best possible result.
1. For now assuming that you are recording 1080i25 (1920 x 1080 @ 25 interlaced frames per second, and your project preset is the program's
default PAL AVCHD Full HD1080i25.
2. When you get to export
with Presets = 720 x 576 16x9 25
We need to customize that preset to be 1920 x 1080 @ 25 progressive frames per second
Click on the Advanced Button of the preset and then the Video Tab under the Advanced Button.
You want to customize the Export Settings under the Video Tab as shown in the following
To the right of the Frame Width and Frame Height fields is a box. If it has a chain link in it, click on the
inside of the box to remove it so that you can type in 1920 and 1080 as shown in the screenshot.
The Bitrate is set by me at 3500 Kbps (kilobits per second). Depending on the initial results
we can decide whether to increase, decrease, or leave the Bitrate value at 3500 Kbps.
The HD .wmv file produced did import nicely in Microsoft PowerPoint 2010 via that program's Insert Video.
We will be watching for your results.
Romano you are the Best!!
