Im editing a couple of small movies taken with a camera phone, adding some transitions and stuff between scenes and stuff. the problem is when I get to the rendering of the thing! Ive tried with mpeg, divx, xvid and h264, but the result is always crappy! The result always come out over exposed and kinda choppy with artifacts, not looking like the original video quality at all (if you can call it quality)!
Especially avi shows a lot of artifact (lines when there is movement), and somehow the setting I specify wont stick, if i set a bitrate of 128, it comes out with 2000-3000 and the framesize and aspect ratio is teasing as well!
How should I go about getting a similar quality to the original video!?
