As the title states, I am trying to edit videos in adobe premiere 15. The video files are coming from OBS Studio. I am saving the recordings from OBS at as MP4.
I have been trying to solve this for some time now and I do not believe it is a settings issue with OBS (although I could be wrong) seeing as how if i stream to twitch.tv the quality comes through fine.
I make a quick sample recording featuring a website page from Wikipedia. When the video is paused it looks okay and the words are readable. However once I press play the quality turns so bad the words cant be made out and pretty much look like Arabic.
Changes I have tried thus far suggested by search resaults:
- Much higher bit rate from 3k to 20k
-Changing Container format from default to flv, and then to MP4
In Adobe premiere:
Making a new project and changing the settings to different presets that I thought would better match the incoming file.
I haven't found much else out there about this and literally cant fathom why the quality would drop when going from paused to playing, or why it seems sub par in adobe premiere compared to live streams, and even replaying archived videos downloaded off of twitch turn out better than this direct recording.
I am no expert at this so I hope I am providing useful information as to what im trying to do and what I've tried so far, as well as posted this in the right place.
Thanks for your time and help
Most likely your project settings are not set up to match your video specs. This could be related to the specs of your MP4 -- particularly if your MP4 using a variable frame rate.
Do you see a yellow-orange "render" line above your clips when you add them to your timeline? This indicates that the program has not matched your video specs. You may be able to improve your playback by rendering the timeline (press Enter -- the yellow line will turn green), but the results still won't be as good as when you are editing video that is using standard camcorder specs.
Will try this when I have time, thanks for the reply!
