I've never been able to export my projects from Premiere Pro, as no matter if I export right from Premiere or if I take it into the Media Encoder my projects turn out to be horrible quality. The clips I'm imported are HD quality, and the project is set to be an HD project. The output is also set to be HD 720p, but I'm getting horrible quality exports. I'm used to exporting via Final Cut Pro, is there something I should be checking off before I start exporting?
That is about like saying "my truck won't carry my purchase home" without describing the truck or the purchase
So... what kind of truck and what are you trying to carry... or, in Premiere terms...
