I just finished editing a 2.5hr long video using elements and exported it to movie so i could use encore to make the dvd but when i started adding chapters i noticed a bunch of blue coloured digital flaws appearing at the top of the screen. I know it wasn't there before I exported it and don't know where or what this blue is. Can someone please help me I am baffled.
The settings I used to export were:
GENERAL - file type: microsoft avi
checked 'export vdeo' and 'export audio'
range: entire timeline
VIDEO - compressor: lagarith loseless codec
colour depth: millions of colours
frame rate: 29.97 fps
pixel aspect ratio: D1\DV NTSC 0.9
data rate: checked 'recompress' and maintain data rate
KEYFRAME\RENDERING - bit depth: use project settings
fields: lower field first
checked 'optimize stills'
AUDIO - uncompressed
sample type: 16 bit
interleave: 1\2 second
I am using a trial version of ELEMENTS and only have 5 days left on it so I need to figure it out fast.
Could it be the Lagarith codec - I wouldn't think so only because I used it to export the rolling credits I made with Premiere 6.0 with I have a full version of - prefered Elements which is why I used it for the rest of the editing - and the the blue digital stuff didn't appear then.
But Hey what do I know I am new to editing, so please any advice you can offer.
Oh and also after exporting - the movie is 89Gb, and there are hardly any effects just basic cuts. Is this rather large or I am just ignorant?
much easier with a computer
