    Basic help with jerky video...preset problem?


      I'm a graphic design student but new to Premiere, and I'm having trouble with simple edits of video files taken by my digital camera. I made a simple test video using 2 different clips that fade in, use a cross dissolve to transition between them and then fade out. The video exported is terribly jerky and I suspect the preset or export settings are incorrect. I feel bad asking such a newbie question but I haven't had much luck searching google for help, maybe because I'm using a point and shoot digital camera's video files with this high level program. If anyone could give me some advice or direct me to a resource to start from I'd really appreciate it. Thanks for reading.
