I have Premiere 6, and I recently filmed and then edited a wedding video for some friends. I managed to cut 6 hours of footage down to about 1 hr 20 which had quite a few transitions and about 4 mp3s intercut.
Unsuprisingly when I exported the movie as an avi (to burn to DVD) it was about 14Gb.
I used WinAVI to compress the movie to a size that I could burn, however, about 20 minutes into the movie, the picture suddenly starts skipping lots of frames and becomes unwatchable.
"Ahh" I thought, "I probably need to use the Export settings in premiere to compress it, then I can just burn it no problem". So I started titting around and probably re-rendered a few times with different compressions.
Now when I watch the movie, anytime there is movement on the screen, there are jagged lines, looks terrible.
Where did I go wrong?
