    Quality Difference Between Source and Program Monitors




      Hopefully somebody might be able to shed some light on my problem... I am working with a QT file in PP CS5 which is an animation created in AE CS5.


      File Details:


      Type: QuickTime Movie

      File Size: 507.4 MB

      Image Size: 1920 x 1080

      Pixel Depth: 24

      Frame Rate: 25.00

      Total Duration: 00:01:00:00

      Average Data Rate: 8.5 MB / second

      Pixel Aspect Ratio: 1.0


      Now when I view the footage in my Source with window (at 100%) it looks nice and crisp, bright and vibrant. When I view it in the Program monitor (at 100%), at both pre and post render stages the footage looks jagged, pixelated and much less vibrant, I've also noticed a slight colour shift as well.


      I'm pretty new to PP CS5 - sorry if this is something really obvious or basic that I have overlooked!, but hopefully someone can help me out!


      Many Thanks,
