I have footage marked on the camera as 60fps, and when transferred to my laptop is stays nice a crisp. An image of the file details below:
However when I import it into Premiere Pro it becomes 30fps and incredibly blurry in the playback. I turned on high resolution, I am on Full, and I rendered the file so I have the green bar. But it's still blurry.
When I export that file (with no edits) to check if it's just the playback that's lower resolution and not the file the exported file is also blurry.
When I edit the frame rate in Premiere Pro to say 60fps and half the speed I still get a blurry video in the playback and after being exported.
From the raw footage to Premiere Pro the footage got compressed so what I ended up importing was actually a blurry 30fps video.
That does sound weird. I can understand how blurry footage in Premiere Pro might be confusing. Can you show us a screenshot of your footage, if possible? Can you also inspect clip properties to check if the footage was shot in HDR? That could be the problem. I hope we can help you.
Thank you for reaching out.
It really was how I transferred the file to my laptop (google photos). I now tried again with a different transfer method (onedrive) and when I import the video now I have a beautiful 59.99fps clear video in Premiere Pro.
Your sourse and output is set to 640x360..... That cannot be right?
That's the compression that killed my pretty video, now that I am using the actual raw footage everything is good.
Premiere does not compress on import, i am guessing you picked the incorrect sequence settings.
