I am very new to video editing but have used Premiere a few times. I am trying to make a video compilation with a bunch of different videos. I tried to export what I had so far and everything was blurry. They were not before when they were separate. I attached screen shots of all my settings. I know I really have no idea what I'm doing, but I just need a little help!

In this section

Format: you want to set it to H.264 (right now, you have it set to QuickTime)

Then, in the preset section, pick YouTube 1080 preset (the YouTube presets are towards the bottom).

What were your export settings?

Did you create that sequence yourself or did you let Premiere create it automatically for you based on the footage?

How are you playing this footage back when it looks blurry?

What do you mean by it looking blurry? Can we see an example?

Thank you for answering so quickly! I did not think about the export settings, that could be it. I attached a screen shot of what I did.

I just used Premiere's settings.

I attached a photo comparing the original to after I exported the video. I just exported it to quicktime. Screen Shot 2016-12-06 at 3.10.14 PM.pngScreen Shot 2016-12-06 at 3.10.49 PM.png

Your output is set to be a LOT smaller than your sequence settings, so the result (when blown up to the same size) will look a lot blurrier. Make your output settings match your sequence settings and it should look a lot better. (Although, you may want square pixels for your output instead of 1.333 PAR it kind of depends on what you're doing with this video.)

So, what are you planning to do with this video once you're done? If you're planning to put it online, you would probably be better-suited making an H.264 and picking one of the presets Premiere has (for example, the YouTube 1080 preset).

That makes sense. Yes I am planning on putting it online. Okay, would you mind telling me where I could find that setting? I can't seem to find it. Thank you so much for helping me!

No problem! Don't forget to mark the "correct" post as the Correct Answer so other forum-goers can find the answer more quickly. And, while you're at it, mark any other ones that were useful as Helpful. It lets Adobe know that I'm a good volunteer.

Hello! I am having the same problem... I attempted to post my video to Facebook as well as YouTube, each time using the H.264 Format and the 1080 preset for Facebook and then Youtube, but when they finally upload to each site, they are blurry. Any ideas on what's going on? Thanks!

The frame-size of both your source and export are truly minuscule! A 298x168 image is not going to look good above postage stamp size.

 

What is the original media frame-size?

Just looking at this post due to the same problem.  What image size is usually needed for the source to not be fuzzy after exporting to mp4 - usually to Vimeo?

Thanks.

At least 1280x720.

 

A good percentage is now 1920x1080 and some is higher.

Super!  Thanks for the answer.  I started doing videos for our church services for COVID-19.  Hadn't ever used Adobe Premier.  Steep learning curve but getting there!
