Can't burn quality looking DVD's in PE'11. Seen several posts about this but no answers that actually work. Using AVCHD footage. Any sharing output looks fine except for DVD's. Have been exporting projects to hard drive and using other DVD burning software to make the DVD and they look fine. But if DVD is burned through PE'11, it is always grainy. I was wondering if the same issues are in later versions. Thanks for any guidance.
What are you doing in Premiere Elements 11 - burn to disc DVD-VIDEO widescreen on DVD disc or burn to disc AVCHD on DVD disc?
Your issue does not seem to one of expectations (resolution/format of end product) since you say that you are comparing work in two phases (export to file and then burn that file to disc) versus one phase Premiere Elements burn to disc.
I see no difference is the burn to products from Premiere Elements 11 through 14/14.1 (current version) on Windows 7, 8.1, or 10 64 bit.
Under the circumstances, please consider downloading and installing the free 30 days tryout of Premiere Elements 14 from Adobe and determine first hand if you note a difference between your Premiere Elements 11 and 14 burn to disc results.
What is your computer operating system, and what are you using to author the files to DVD-VIDEO on DVD disc or AVCHD on DVD disc? In the latter program, what control do you have above burn to settings?
Best wishes for the new year.
