How are you judging its quality in Premiere Elements? By looking at it in the program's Monitor window? If so, you're most likely looking at an unrendered view of the video.
When you add your clip to the Premiere Elements timeline Expert view, is there a yellow-orange line along the top of the timeline, above the clip? That is an indication that you're seeing a reduced quality version of your video. Once your video is rendered, it will look fine.
You can render your video on the timeline by pressing the Enter key. When that yellow-orange line turns green, your video should look great.
In most cases, the program will automatically match its project settings to your video specs, and you won't need to render your video until you add effects to it. In your case, the program is not doing this for some reason.
This sometimes happens when your footage is MOV/Quicktime, which the program sometimes has trouble deciphering, since it can be made up of such a wide range of formats.
If this is the case, we can show you a manual workaround.
What are the specs of your video? Is it 1920x1080 or 4k?
yes, but i have been rendered it, and i follow this guys tricks but its no differentQuick Tip - How to output an Adobe Premiere Elements video to YouTube - YouTube i have also been upload it on youtube but it still the same.

You need to know the properties of your video before setting the project preset manually correctly. You mention 1920 x 1080 as the frame size. What is the frame rate, interlaced or progressive? Are you set up for NTSC or PAL? What is your computer operating system? Did you update 13 to 13.1 yet using an opened project's Help Menu/Updates?
Assuming Premiere Elements 11 through 14/14.1 on Windows 7, 8, 8.1, and 10 64 bit....
The steps for manually setting the project preset to match the properties of your source media include
- Open the project to the Expert workspace, and go to File Menu/New Project and Change Settings.
- In Change Settings, set the project preset to match the properties of the source media. OK out of there.
- In the New Project dialog that opens, rename the project and make sure to have a check mark next to "Force Selected Project Setting on This Project". OK out of there.
- Back in the Expert workspace, import your source media using Add Media/Files and Folders/.
The key to taking advantage of the perks of the manually setting the project preset requires the above information. Suggestion, please include them when you resume the discussion in progress.
Add On...Sometimes a quick way of getting at the properties of the source video is offering the brand/model/settings for the camera that recorded the video.
hej i did what u said but it still the same, probably I'm doing something not right... I'm not use to this,can u maybe show me a video of how to do this?
As ATR says, we need to know the specs of the video. Please open the video in a program like G Spot or Media Info and post the resolution, frame rate and audio and video codecs it reports.
