We're using a basic Kodak digital camera. Uploading instant payday loan >the videos directly into Brightcove from the MOV file created by the camera and the resolution/clarity etc is very good. Nice and crisp, high quality video. This video quality, when uploaded directly, would be great.
But then we take the video into Adobe Premier Elements, add a little intro, speaker title and basic stuff, upload to Brightcove...and the quality of the video and the quality of the text (created in Photoshop) drops off dramatically. Anybody have ideas how to edit in Adobe Premier Elements to avoid this drop in quality? And what about creating text...the text created in photoshop looks fine and high quality. What needs to be done so that text gets into the video file and stays crisp? Its becoming slightly blurry now...not terrible, but certainly not professional looking.

A couple of things to consider:
1) Make sure you're exporting the video properly: http://support.brightcove.com/en/docs/exporting-hi
2) Try using slightly larger fonts, or fonts with a slightly thicker border to reduce distortion during transcoding.
3) Make sure the font color and the video background color have enough contrast to avoid blurring.
