Adobe Premiere Elements 10 Does not allow for a preset 1920x1080/60p I chose the nearest which was 1920x1080/30p When rendered to a regular disc the video resolution looked good but appeared underexposed. When rendered to a Blu-ray disc and played on HD screen the video exposure appeared acceptable but the resolution seemed chalky....particular the skin (white).

I question if preset 1920x1080/60p was made available, and used, would this solve the problem??

Will this preset be available in the next version?? Please advise.

The difference between 1920x1080/30p and 1920x1080/60p, is that last bit 30 vs 60.

The first bit 1920x1080, is the screen resolution, 1920 pixels across and 1080 pixels vertically. This is telling us how much information is available per frame by describing 2 of the 3 dimensions involved.

The third dimension is not depth, but time. Our measurement for that is 30 or 60. This is the number of 1920x1080 frames that will flash by per second. The higher the frame rate the smoother the playback. The standard for video is 30 in the US (NTSC) is 30 frames per second. For film (at a theater) that rate is 24. So having 60 frames flashing by per second is too much, it goes by too fast for the human eye to follow or notice a difference from 30 frames. All it is going to do is cause your video to be twice as big with no quality gain. (The "p" stands for progressive, which means we get 30 or 60 full frames per second, verses "i" for interlaced, which mean half frames or fields).

In fact, by doubling the number of frames you are increasing the amount of compression per frame in order to have a file size small enough to fit on disk. This is likely the cause of your woes. When compression is increased the number of colors available per frame will drop. But ultimately, the frame size and frame rate have no direct correlation to the color quality of your video.

Very Interesting.
Although my camcorder records & plays back at 1920x1080/60p, what happens when I download using Adobe Elements 10 with a preset of 1920x1080/30p selected? What does the program do to the media?
