Hi Hunt and All,
I read the recent thread on Poor Quality Quicktime file but couldn't translate his details to my situation so here goes:
I need to create Quicktime file with highest quality at a size of 640x480. I started with .mod files from a Canon FS100. The original .mod's are 720x480 and i converted them to same size .avi to edit. All of my work is SD. I added menu and saved the entire file as same size .mpg, which looks good, but the fulfillment pro working with me needs a larger size .mov.
I'm using PE7 and the preset for QT on the Share menu is 320x240. What settings do I use to increase size without sacrificing quality? Switching codecs didn't appear to change the picture size...or perhaps it was just that i didn't go through enough codecs.
Before coming to the forum, I did some research on the relationship between pixel size and quality and basically get the idea, but would appreciate instructions from the pros here so I can get it right the first time.
In Premiere Elements 8, you can go to Share/Personal Computer and select Quicktime. The preset drop-down offers the option LAN/Local Area Network, which will produce a 640x480 video.
If you click the Advanced button, you can even adjust the quality slider from 50% to 100%.
I have PE7 and it offers the same option.
