There is no reason that outputting your video as an MP4 should reduce the quality of your video and it certainly won't cause the titles to come in later than they should.
What program are you viewing this video on? Rather than Quicktime, try viewing it with VLC Media Player.
Also "low quality" means different things to different people. Can you post a link to this video posted to YouTube so we can see what you're describing?
Meantime what model of camcorder is the original video coming from and what format and resolution is it? Have you ensured that the program matching its project settings to your video specs? If project settings match video specs, you will NOT see a yellow orange 'render' line above the first clip you add to your timeline. Is that the case in your video?
Thanks for the reply, Steve.
I was only watching the video within Premiere Elements before uploading to
YouTube. I'm not able to download VLC Media Player because it's a Windows
based program. I just now tried playing the MP4 file in QuickTime and get
the same title delay.
Now that some time has passed the quality of video has improved on YouTube
but there is still a 3-second delay on any of my titles with motion.
The camcorder is a Canon Vixia HF R400. The format is HD, resolution 1920 x
1080. I do not see an orange line when adding the first clip to the
timeline. The General Settings for the project show Editing Mode 1080i.
Frame size 1920x1080. Other than that, I'm not sure how to tell if my
camera settings match the project.
Here is the video: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=9b4e_q6MKk4. The first
moving title should come in at about 49 seconds. Instead it's coming in at
Thanks so much for your help!

Your YouTube video is private. We can't access it or view it.
What are we looking for, Kristay? The titles all look right on the nose to me.
When I watch it on YouTube my titles that slide in, like the one at 49
seconds, are coming in early and stuttering. The "Self Awareness" title
should come in a couple of seconds after the video changes from the speaker
to the shot of the horse and people at about 49 seconds. Is that what
you're seeing? Or is it late? Is that title sliding or does it come in all

It is jumpy for me on Chrome and IE.
Thanks for looking. Was it just the sliding titles or was the video jumping
I had to look very closely, but yes, the video does jump very slightly. I woudn't have noticed if you didn't mention it.
OK, thanks so much for looking. Any suggestions? These things aren't
happening when I play them in Premiere Elements, just on YouTube.
How did you create the animation, moving the credit from right to left.
I used the Slide in by Line selection from the Animation tab in Adjust. I'm
going to try a different Animation selection later this morning and see if
that does the same thing. I'll keep you posted. Thanks!

I would not use slide in and fade out titles.
Just use fade in and out and the font that is used in the logo. Looks much nicer.
The less fancy stuff the more professional it looks and less headache on how its moving in which is too slow in my opinion.
Do you see the render line above the first clip on your timeline?
Thanks so much for the input. I appreciate the tip!!
No, I don't see the render line. I chose a different animation and now it's
working fine. I'm going to go with that!
Thank you so much for your time and thought on this. It was much
