What are your current project specs? If your current project is standard DV, you're not going to have much success outputting it as high-def. It will just look blurry and fuzzy.
In any event, if the transposition is shifting things, then the solution is simple: Open a new DV project and use that DV-AVI you exporting from the old project as your source footage. Since you're only using on track of video, nothing will shift when you share the file as a hi-def video.
It's just going to look a little fuzzy.
my footage is shot in 1080p HD. i imported it as HDV directly off my camera tape. I have tried saving as DV AVI and reopening it in premiere, then saving as HD...but i get a major loss of quality when compared to straight-away MPEG HD.
"but i get a major loss of quality when compared to straight-away MPEG HD"
Yes. That's what I said would happen. From your initial post it wasn't clear you were working with HDV footage.
Is your original footage from a tape-based HDV camcorder?
What happens if you select Share/Computer/MPEG and select the 1440x1080 option?
yes my footage is from a tape based camcorder. also i have tried the 1440x1080 option and it still has the slight movement of the clips used to create the muzzle flashes
If you render your timeline before you export, do the rendered files look off when you play back the timeline?
If you render the timeline first, does it change what you see when you output your MPEG?
If the playback of the rendered timeline looks good but the MPEG you export from the project doesn't, then you've definitely found a bug! Unfortunately, I'm not sure what the solution is.
no it still is causing the issue. i know i said this before but could it be
a codec problem? or is this something that would be a result of a dropped
It's not likely. It appears to be a bug. Sorry.
