This is driving me crazy!!!
I shot the video clips in HD using my new Olympus Pen E-PL1 and decided I might as well use an editing program that supports and produces HD video. (Usually I use Windows Movie Maker but downloaded a trial of Adobe Premiere to try to make HD video sequences). But I can't seem to get the settings right. The video looks grainy and pixelized on the view screen and on the test export I did. The clips look beautiful when I watch them in QuickTime Player.
What sequence presets should I be using? The video clips say they are 1280 x 720 (1.0), 30 fps.
Thank you in advance for your help!
Read the "limitations" of the 'Trial Version of PPro
Read the fine print, trial version is useless for trialing HD . Try Sony Vegas it works there, but, not as good as full version of Premiere Pro or Premiere Elements.
