Thread: Exporting Project results in horizontal lines

  1. #1

    Default Exporting Project results in horizontal lines

    Who could help me with the following???:

    First I open Premiere Elements 1.0 and capture my DV video on .avi files.
    --> This results in excellent quality avi files (all fine here!)

    Then I edit it a bit with standard transitions and cut out some obsolete frames. To finish it off in Premiere Elements I render it completely
    --> When looking at the preview in Premiere, all still looks quite ok (just a slight loss of quality)

    THEN I save it to MPEG format (DVD/PAL)
    --> All shots where the camcorder made some quick movements, show very irritating horizontal lines, however when the camcorder is "not moving" no lines are shown...

    What can I do to prevent these horizontal lines!?!? Could it be the video card (even if the avi files created show a very high quality)?!?!?

    I even tried it all with just a single track, all goes well, untill exporting it to a new file (MPEG, WMV, VOB all the same horizontal lines, WMV even more...).

    Looking forward to your feedback!
    Thanks in advance,

    This is quite deliberate and correct. Those lines are exactly what you want. It's all a question of interlacing and is covered in section 1 (no less) on the FAQ. But in short...

    Your PC monitor is non-interlaced but the MPEG2 video you just output is in designed for an interlaced display (i.e. a TV set) and you just happen to get this worrying effect when viewinig an intelaced signal on a non-interlaced device.

    Cut your DVD and wastch it on a set top box and all will be ok - unless you messed up further....
