One thing that sticks out is that your Sequence Settings is 1440x1080 with a Pixel Aspect Ratio of 1.333. This is the same settings as HDV that in itself are kind of obsolete today. A wild guess is that your source footage is 1920x1080 with a Pixel Aspect Ratio of 1.0.

Hi Wilson,

Sorry about that. Your settings look OK. You can try Software Encoding in Video > Encoding Settings as a test. Let us know what happens.

 

Thanks,
Kevin

Are you viewing it at actual size after export or some other size (such as full screen)?

What is the resolution of your monitor? Your video is 1440 x 1080--if you look at it on a 4K or larger monitor, it will be viewed at least 200% or larger.

You are viewing your video at appx. 130% larger than its natural size. Try viewing it at 100%. That amount of enlargement shouldn't make it blurry, but it would look soft.

Point being, check your source footage to make sure what resolution it is. If you have 1920x1080 with a Pixel Aspect Ratio of 1.0 make sure that your Sequence Settings match that, and make sure that your export settings match that. Any mismatch, such as placing 1920x1080 on a 1440x1080 sequence and then export it to 1440x1080 will cause the export to look blurry.

 

You are using hardware encoding as well. Software looks better. Using a higher bitrate can be a good idea to test as well.

I'm not an expert in this area, but I seem to remember the 1440x1080 was a way to save space on flash cards. It was supposed to be converted to 1920x1080 upon export using the camera's software.
