      hi

      there i am running windows xp pro 64 bit . Using Premiere Elements7. when i connect with firewire to load video from camera it all looks impeccable on screen as it loads. Once i stop loading and Premiere renders it (i guess) all of a sudden the video looks granny and pixalated and stays that way even after i export it on dvd.Hope spme one can help me please.Thank you in advance.

          What type of camcorder are you connecting to? MiniDV? HDV?

           

          And have you ensured that your project's settings match your camcorder?

           

          MiniDV and HDV footage that's captured over FireWire does not render when captured by Premiere Elements. In fact, except for being encapsulated as short AVIs or MPEGs, the video data remains exactly the same. Capturing (which is actually just streaming the data) doesn't change anything.

           

          In other words, using the proper settings and a FireWire connection, you will not see a reduction in quality whatsoever from a miniDV or HDV video.

                That's a $2000 camcorder you're editing on a $90 piece of software, Marco.

                 

                Even still there is no reason I know of you're seeing pixelation. As I said, the video data does not change during capture.

                 

                You're not looking at it full-screen on your computer, are you? As I say in my books, your computer monitor has many times the resolution of video.

                 

                You also don't say what program you're using to look at the video.

                 

                But, as I said, regardless of what you're seeing or how you're seeing it, the video on your computer is identical to the video on your camcorder's tape. Trust me on this.

                 

                Use it in a project set up for DV and you'll get excellent results.

                  Though it might have nothing to do with your issue, remember that XP-64 was never certified for any Adobe program. It was a beta-only OS, and basically an evolutionary dead-end, though some of its code is probably in Vista-64 and Win7-64. Still, it has been known to cause many major issues with Adobe programs.

                   

                  Good luck,
