I am creating a short "film" that I wish to play straight out of my computer via the hdmi port to a 1080p monitor. How can I do this while maintaining good quality? I did a test, creating a few 1920 x 1080 psds with some text, etc., music underneath, and used premiere pro cs4 &media encoder to create an AVI file. The avi file looks terrible of course when played on the TV - text is blurry - basically the same as when I used to work with CRT TVs & premiere 6. Plus, all of the premiere pro menus,etc., are on the screen which i don't want.
Is there a way to play straight from premiere or encore to a 1080p monitor without seeing any premiere palettes or any other windows on the screen - just the movie playing? With great quality / crisp text? Opsys = windows XP sp3.
The reason I want to go straight to the monitor is I don't have a blu ray drive or the knowledge of how to properly encode one yet.
Any suggestions appreciated.
There is no way that I know of to play from Premiere through a HDMI port on your computer.
I am not sure whether this will help.
You may need to configure display for two monitors when starting a new project in premiere. In the general tab select Playback Settings and then external device. That way you should be able to view your program monitor from premiere timeline to your TV in full quality.
I hope this helps.
