I am working with DV AVI (NTSC) 720x480.
My source image looks like this (Viewed at source resolution in Media Player Classic Home Cinema Edition):
My output looks like this (Viewed at source resolution in Media Player Classic Home Cinema Edition):
When I export, I check "Match Sequence Settings". Resolution is the same as the source.
When I right-click on the still titles I have added to the timeline, they match the source file's resolution.
Regardless of what I do, my output file gets the sides cut off - as shown by comparing the second screenshot with the first.
Is there any way I can prevent Adobe from re-encoding my source file?
All I do in Adobe is trim/cut, add basic effects like Cross Dissolve, and still titles.
I notice the "blurring" or "smoothing" as a result of deinterlacing.
Is there a way to just have Adobe attach my effects and titles and leave my source file as-is?
I notice in the Export Summary it says "Quality 100". I do not consider this to be true based on the re-encoding of my file causing quality/sharpness.
I do not see a setting to prevent deinterlacing.
If Adobe cannot do what I want, could someone recommend a different program?
What did you encode it as? (settings)
If you want it the same as your source you need to export it as ;
DV AVI (NTSC) 720x480.
I stated two details in my first post:
"I am working with DV AVI (NTSC) 720x480."
"When I export, I check "Match Sequence Settings"."
So naturally, my export is set to the same resolution.
Yet, if you look at the screenshots, the output is not the same.
It's cut off even in the program window before exporting takes place.
