When activating the option to export in Premiere , I have customized with the maximum possible quality.

Exporting in Adobe Premiere , using the same or better quality to the source video that was imported ?

Thank you all,

  • When you export in Premiere what codec are you using? h264? – eLouai Feb 9 '15 at 18:51
  • i have the same problem but it shows up like that in premiere before i export it but the video itself is fine – Peyton Donaldson Nov 20 '17 at 17:36

When exporting from Premiere there is a checkbox that says "match sequence settings" which will use the same format as your source video.

The "best quality" checkbox is Premiere does not refer to the codec, but to the internal scaling algorithms.
