    Quality Lost On Preview/Edit

      I have captured several scenes and saved them as avi files. These files play perfectly in Windows Media Player. However as soon as I preview these files within PE the quality of the video degrades significantly. When paused the shot looks fine, however when playing the curves have lost their smooth shape with little sharp steps around where you'd expect the curve to be. It appears similar to the video being broken up into small squares/rectangles.

      Any help much appreciated! I have had this working well a long time ago, but have since bought a new desktop and changed monitors, presumably during the reinstall I haven't completed the PE configuration correctly.

      Details:
      PE2
      Source: avi, image size 720x576, Aspect ratio 1.422

      Field options on video clip in timeline:set to none (I have tried all options)
      Project settings/Editing mode: DV PAL
