When I export a flv from Premiere CS4, in the Output plane of the Export Settings window, everything looks fine: crisp and sharp, exactly like the source. However, after the file shows up in Media Encoder, the output becomes blurry. Checking the settings in Encoder, they are the exact same as in Premiere, but in the Output plane, the image is now blurry (source is still sharp). How can I fix this?
Try raising the Bit Rate setting
The bitrate setting is 1400. When using CS2, I had the same setting, but everything was sharp. But in CS4, it no longer is.
