Premiere Elents 2018

When I playback a video the quality is not good. If I play back using VLC it is perfect. I am not talking about editing videos just viewing videos I have taken which are stored in Organiser.

 

Is there any way I can make the playback use VLC rather than what it is actually using?

Depends on the specs of the video. 

 

Open your video in the free download MediaInfo. In MediaInfo, set View to Text and then copy the text of this report and paste it to this forum. With that additional information, we'll better be able to advise you.

 

It might also help to know which processor you have and with how much RAM.

My processor is Intel Core(TM) i9-10900k CPU @ 3.7 Ghz 10 Cores

RAM is 16 GB

This video is an MTS file but other videos (eg MP4) are the same. The outlines are pixilated and a bit blurred. VLC plays them just fine.

Hope this helps

I don't see anything here that would cause you problems. It looks like a pretty standard AVC file. It appears to be from an AVCHD camcorder.

 

Look at your Project Settings. Go to the Edit menu and look at the General page under Project Setttings. Ensure that it shows 1920x1080 25 fps PAL.

 

If these project settings are the same as your video specs, there's something funny going on that isn't immediately obvious. If so, I'll show you how to troubleshoot the issue.

The project settings seems to be if I launch Premier Elements to start an editing session. What I am talking about is just playing a video clip from Organiser so I can look at the pictures and videos I have taken. So from Organiser I double click on the video then get a brief message "preparing file for playback" then it plays but in poor quality including pixellating.

I'm sorry. I really don't know enough to speak for the performance of the Organizer's preview window.

I've spent ages more trying to sort this issue but I’m still in the position where video files with .mts extension play back very poorly in the Photoshop Elements organiser but perfectly in Windows Media Player or VLC. I have even just upgraded to Elements 2023 to see if that improves things but it doesn’t.

 

For me the answer would be if I could choose an external player from the Elements Organiser but it doesn’t permit this.

I've sorted this problem now. The issue is that my compact camera was set up to record video in interlaced mode rather than progressive. Changing this has fixed the problem.

I'm amazed that over several years Adobe does not seem to have realised this! There must be thousands of people who have had this problem.
