Quality loss exporting a sequence containing an exported video from another sequence

Currently working on longer videos that contain other videos that were exported from other projects. Using the Vimeo 1080p export preset it seems the first time it is exported the video is fine but if that video is then dragged into a new project the quality gets significantly worse even though it is being exported with the same vimeo 1080p preset. We have never had an issue with this in the past until recently in the last couple months. Has something changed?

That's an H.264 preset, right? With a ton of compression?

 

Re-compressing into H.264 through a couple generations does get notably artifacted ... as a natural occurrence. Pumping the bitrate setting up quite a bit especially on the first go-round can help extend the process some. But file degradation is inevitable with that process.

Ah we assumed that would be the case but we've never seen it to this extent until recently. Maybe something changed in an update.
