I've been messing with some sizes and compressions between Windows Movie Maker and Adobe Premier. I prefer Adobe for editing because of the options, however I can't seem to get it to compress like it does with Windows Movie Maker, even with the same settings.
I'm recording WoW with Fraps, with a set FPS of 29.97 for recording.
In Windows Movie Maker I save the file in NTSC (DV) with a 16:9 or 4:3 ratio, and get this:
www.jsx1.net/severed.wmv ( guild video )
I then import the same .avi Fraps files into Adobe Premier Pro ( the file resolution is at 640x512) and export the movie as a .wmv, with settings of NTSC (DV) with a 16:9 ratio, and get this:
www.jsx1.net/badmovie.wmv ( this video is much larger for some reason, eek!)
If you notice in the first video, it is sized correctly and has decent color quality. In the second movie, the size is all messed up, but with a bit better color quality. I'm not sure how to export the video from Adobe Premier and get the same size ( as the first video ) and same quality ( as the second ) Any suggestions are appreciated!
