What is this is a screen shot of? Is it a video output from Premiere Elements or is it the Monitor panel in Premiere Elements?
Remember that the Monitor panel in the program is a preview only. It's not actually how your finished video is going to look.
And if this is a video output from Premiere Elements, it could be related to the compression and bit rate of the output, etc.
But let's make sure we're comparing apples to apples. What is this screen capture of and how does it compare to the original footage (which I assume is also 1920x1080).
It's an interesting comparison, RCN.
Why did you output and MPEG rather than an MP4 from Premiere Elements? MPEGs are not as efficiently compressed and are often interlaced. Or am I reading your specs wrong.
Certainly an apples to apples comparison would compare mp4s with mp4s.
Because I don't know what I am doing.
I see now there is an MP4 option under AVCHD. Testing that output now.
In my head I thought AVCHD was an old video camera format, so I hadn't even looked under that.
Yes, that fixed it. Thanks so much for your help.
