I've been messing around with the settings for a while now and I can't seem to get a project to render out that has the same quality as the original raw video. I keep feeling like I should be getting better quality compression, so I was trying to just go back and render out the file at it's highest quality first to see if I could even do that. So far, I'm getting rather blocky and crappy quality.
Windows Explorer says that the data rate for each raw file is roughly 13kbps. Is that reliable?
Should I just match the sequence settings and then compress from there in Sorenson? Keep in mind that I simply did a drag and drop in order to set the sequence settings based on the raw file, so I would think they should match perfectly. No?
I've checked the "Source:" specs to make sure I'm matching them up correctly as well.
