Are you rendering your timeline (press Enter) after adding your fade or time stretch and before playing a preview?
Why are you manually creating keyframes for the fade rather than using the Fade In/Fade Out tool? Do you get different results if you use the tool?
Thanks for the reply. Yes, this is happening after I render.
I have no reason why I was manually creating keyframes; however, I just went back in and used the "dip to black tool." This is so strange, the video clip is perfect and clear right until the fading begins is when the video turns grainy.
When I remove the keyframes and or the fade tool, the video goes back to being perfect.
The same scenario is happening when I am putting text over a video clip. Makes the video clip grainy.
Can you post a short example of what you're seeing to YouTube and link us to it?
When we see it, we may have a better idea what to do about it.
Hope this screen recording does it justice. It's sort of hard to tell what I'm talking about, but believe me that the quality of the clip immediately changes once the fade has started.
Again, on another clip I have text over it, and when the text starts, the clip gets grainy.
Let me know if I can do anything else. I appreciate the help.
Sorry, Emerick. I'm just not seeing the issue.
Although it's possible that it's related to the video compression. Was this video shot was a camcorder, a DSLR or a phone? Which model and at what setting?
Phone video or iPad video is going to have higher compression than a camcorder -- but unless you're using the highest quality level on a camcorder, it's possible that it's highly compressed too.
