Thread: ASF->Mpeg->worst quality ever in Adobe?

    Default ASF->Mpeg->worst quality ever in Adobe?

    I'm working on a DVD for a school project and I use my digital camcorder for movies. My camera records everything in .ASF format, which doen't work in Adobe. To fix this, I've converted the ASF files to MPEG with the Blaze Media Pro program. These MPEG files look great when I open them with Winamp, Windows MediaPlayer or Realplayer.
    When I open them in Adobe, the picture quality is really bad. It's choppy and extremely pixelated. Does anyone have a solution? Should I use a different program for converting these ASF files?

    Thanks in advance

    Don't edit in mpeg - you're probably best using another format, maybe using the Panasonic DV codec?

    I've installed the Panasonic codec, but it doesn't really help me. The files won't load in Virtualdub. Furthermore, Adobe only accepts Quicktime, AVI and MPEG.

    can't you use "blaze media pro" to convert to DV avi?

    your digital camera (whatever the hell it is, recording things in asf...) should've come with an app to convert as well. If not, it's even sillier.

    Try and get your hands on virtualdub 1.4c - that;s the last release before Microsoft asked the creator (Avery Lee I think is the chap) to remove it.

    The Panasonic DV codec will be "wrapped" in an AVI file, which Premiere will import and edit with ease.
