At what point are you judging this quality? When you play the timeline (which is only a preview) or when you output your finished movie?
What model of camcorder is your video coming from and what resolution is it?
What operating system are you using? Have you ensured you have the latest version of Quicktime, per the program's requirements?
When you add a clip to your timeline, is there a yellow-orange "render" line above the clip, along the ticker at the top of the timeline? This is an indication that your project settings are not matching your clip. Pressing your Enter key will render this segment and you will see a much cleaner preview of your video -- but matching video specs to project settings will give you the highest quality preview.
It works to render, but whenj I do that it just plays the video instead of rendering
If you'd like me to help you troubleshoot this, you're going to have to answer all of my questions.
Hi. The webcam is a Logitech C920. The quality is crap throughout the whole video. The render line is green, though. I am unable to install the latest version of Quicktime on Windows 10, so that is not an option. (It gives me error codes 2503 and 2502).
Premier Elements is first and foremost an editing system for video from cameras and camcorders. Web cams, screen capture systems and other non camera systems have a variety of formats that can make comparability a challenge.
Can you provide detail about the video footage?
But, before you do, it would be a good idea to get Quicktime running.
