    Combining clips from multiple cameras and getting grainy footage

      I'm sure this is something completely basic, as I am kind of a Premiere noob, but I can't find an answer...hopefully someone here has an easy one or can point me in the right direction...

       

      I'm working on some personal video editing to try and learn the basics of Premiere.

       

      I'm trying to combine video from a family event shot on 2 different cameras, one a digital camera that shot video at 1920x1080, and 23.976 fps,

       

      and the other, my iPhone 4 at 1280x720, and 24fps

       

      I've setup my project at 1280x720, the size of my iPhone video, and am scaling the other footage down to match this size.

       

      I also chose a timebase of 23.976 seconds for the sequence.

       

      Now whenever my timeline hits the iPhone footage, it plays really grainy and pixellated.

       

      I thought maybe it's the framerate, and tried Intepret footage on the iPhone footage (24fps), to 23.976, but that didn't fix it.

       

      Anyone have any other idea why this could be happening?

       

      And if this is something completely basic, feel free to give me a kick in the pants and tell me to get back to Flash and Photoshop...but any help would be appreciated~

       

      Thanks much!!!
