    Blurry Video Exports

      Hello!

       

      I am working on a new project using the CS4 Master Collection and experiencing some issues using Premier Pro CS4.

       

      I've created a new project in Adobe After Effects CS4 and exported a quicktime movie with high quality "animation" settings

      applied to it.  The animation exports perfectly and is as crisp and clear as it gets.

       

      After importing this video into Premiere, applying some audio and and a title, then exporting, I get blurry video.

      I have tried almost 30 different settings to export the video even using the animation setting in Premier. ( which ends up looking like a compressed .gif file! )

       

      No matter what I try, it's always blurry and compressed looking.  So far the best setting for quality is using the "Apple Intermediate Codec".

      However, it's still not comparable to the After Effects Settings.

       

      Here are my settings for After Effects:

       

      Quality: Best

      Resolution: Full

      Size: 720x480

      Frame rate: 29.97

      Format: Quicktime Movie

      Pixel Aspet Ratio: D1 / DV NTSC (0.91)

      Output Info: Animation

      Channels: RGB

      Depth: Millions of Colors

       

      And my Premiere Project Settings:

       

      Editing Mode: Quicktime DV NTSC

      Timebase: 29.97

      Frame Size: 720x480

      Pixel Aspect Ratio: D1 / DV NTSC (0.9091)

      Fields: Lower Field First

      Display Format:  30fps Drop -Frame Time Code

      Monitors:

      2 Hannspree 1680x1050 monitors, both using vga to dvi adaptors into the computer.

       

      I am new to Premier Pro CS4, I have been using FCP for quite awhile.  If any one can lend a hand I would truly appreciate it, I am totally puzzled!

      If you need more settings please let me know.

       

      Thank you!!!!
