How large an output file is depends on the settings used to create it.
What are the specs of your original raw footage?
What are the settings of your Premiere Elements project (Listed under the Edit menu, under Project Settings/General)?
Which Export & Share settings did you select?
Can you share your output via DropBox so we can crack it open and see what its specs are?
I am recording with a dji mavic pro drone and I recorded in standart settings, means 4k and about 30 fps.
I don't know the settings of myPremiere Elements projectbut I know that I haven't changed anything.
I exportet in 4k 3840 x 2160, for TV and Computer with the highest Quality.
As I said, this look worse than exporting in HD 1920 x 1080, also highest quality.
I hope These informations are enought to help me, otherwise, I had to be fine with HD 1920 x 1080.
You need to know your Premiere Elements project settings.
If you import 4K into a standard definition or even high-def project, you're going to get a pretty awful looking 4k video output.
What are your Premiere Elements project settings?
Sorry, bout I don't know how to find the project settings out. How can you do that?
As I said above, under the Edit menu, you'll find Project Settings. The settings are listed on the General page.
I guess I now know the issue. The problem is, that these settings are set on 1920 x 1080 Frames.
Is this why the 4k Export is not working correctly?
I can't change these settings so I guess I had to create a new project.
Can I kind of copy the timeline into the new project to have it at the end in 4k or would I have to do the whole cutting again?
Thank you, and I hope this will put an end to my questions.

Yes, you'll need to start a new project and select the settings for 4k.
