I have a HiRes MG4 video that I simply want to cut the end off. I can do the editting OK in Premier, but when I do the Export Media, I find the quality of the video is greatly deteriorated. I have tried several different options, but none give an output anywhere near as good as the original. I assume I am using the wrong the export settings. Can anyone please advise? Perhaps I don't even have to export it ....??
What KIND of video... ie- what is the codec?
The 1st question at the end of this link has a link to programs to determine the codec... and working through the steps is also a good idea
First, work through all of the steps here http://ppro.wikia.com/wiki/Troubleshooting
If your problem isn't fixed after you follow all of the steps, report back with the DETAILS asked for in the questions at the end of that link
There may be programs better suited to this task than Premiere. Specifically one that can do the task without reencoding.
I'd look around.
