The DV format is the limitation here. It can only be 720 x 480. You'll have to choose another format to be able to change that.
You should have edited in a HDV project, and then exported in Adobe Media Encoder to export to Windows Media (better than DivX anyway for HDV).
Thanks for the reply. You gave me more info here, so I understand now. I didn't quite get what Jim was getting at.
Today, I used the Media Encoder, but I output to 720p in .mov format and was blown away with the quality.
However, I don't know what is better, .wmv or .mov ??
One pet peeve: Why, why, why, does Premiere ALWAYS think that when you export to a .mov that you don't want audio ?
When you export to .mov, you must ALWAYS verify that the audio output is checked off, if not, you end up with a video without audio. This is the only format in which Premiere does this. Why did they do this ? I can't see a single reason why Premiere defaults to exporting a video without audio. ( I have, many times, forgotten to click the export audio, only to find out later, once the render has completed )
>what is better, .wmv or .mov
Technically, at this point in time, WMV is higher quality at the same data rate, unless you buy Sorenson Squeeze and use their Pro Quicktime codec. Then they are about the same.
I don't often export to Quicktime, so I never noticed the audio issue. I am opening a project to check it out right now. Be back in a moment .....
OK, I am back. I don't have that problem. The audio checkbox is always selected.
