Loss of Quality.JPGSo I got a new camera and the video quality is much better than my previous one which is great but now I am noticing that when I export my videos the quality drops. The video just seems duller, the colors look flat and the edges of everything are slightly blurred almost like it is slightly out of focus. Here are my settings. I have tried everything I can think of and looked at many websites and nothing seems to work. Can someone please tell me what I am doing wrong?

That would indicate that it is being exported correctly and that the difference is in the player.

try to get the exported video inside premiere pro and watch it there at full res playback, is it the same?

are the colors there washed out too? which color space are you using inside premiere pro?

you cannot test colors on external players(different color space)... try not to use maximum render quality

Now I am even more confused. I put the exported video in Premiere and when I view it in the source window it looks blury and faded but when I drop the video in a sequence it looks perfect again.

try to uncheck use maximum render quality, this will increase export time and

won't be of much use if there is not much motion in your frame, if scaling is bad or if you see 

banding and artifacts.. also, you are exporting to Full HD, maybe a bitrate of 10 is enough?

try also 1 pass VBR. What camera did you use? can you tell us more about the footage specs?

you are on software only encoding, which means for these specific custom settings, premiere pro

is not using GPU acceleration, try lowering the bitrate or export to another format like 

QuickTime GoPro Cineform yuv 10 bit

I tried everything you suggested and the video still looks the same after exporting. I fillmed on a Canon m50. The footage is 1920x1080 at 24fps

Yes. I exported the video then made a new project and put the exported video in premiere. When I watched the exported video in the source window it looked bad and when I dropped the exported video into a new sequence the video cleared up and looked great again. I hope that made since.

So if I upload it to YouTube should the quality be correct?

If exported in the proper format and if YouTube doesn't do something to the file, yes.

im still confused why the same video looks bad on the source monitor and good on the program monitor,

while both monitors are set to full playback quality. Did you try to trash premiere pro preferences?

I can't figure it out. Once I uploaded the video to YouTube the quality and colors (except a bit darker) cleared up and looked like it does in Premiere.

I think I figured it out. I turned Pasued Playback to full and turned on High Quality Playback in the source monitor and both monitors match now.
