Trying to make a 12 minute project look amazing
on Feb 8, 2008 at 11:01:09 pm

I'm exporting from Adobe Media Encoding within Premiere, but I just can't seem to get something close to lossless for MPEG2. I thought I might have some wiggle room since it's 12 minutes as opposed to a 21/2 hour movie, but I'm still getting stupid noise around edges...

I need clean edges and so far, because I don't know enough about this, fonts still look blurry around the edges. Windows Media Codec does better than this for pete's sake.

Where am I going wrong? I'm going to try and find some resources on MPEG2/DVD encoding, and if anybody knows some, feel free to shout in here too. :)

Thanks for any help! Argh!

What settings are you using for your encoding?

Also, what Authoring program are you using?

Regards,
George

I'm outputting from Premiere at 7CBR. VBR target 7, max 8. Highest quality MPEG2-DVD...quality at 5. Same framerate etc.

Now here's the WEIRD thing. I outputted the same test clip from After Effects, and the sucker is as clear as a bell. Same settings as far as I can tell.

Does Premiere use a "fisher-price" version of the encoder or what? :) This is just weird weird weird.
