Blurry output when rendering MTS to MP4
Windows 10, Movie Studio 16 Platinum
Nvidia GeForce RTX 2070 Super, Nvidia Studio driver version 18.104.22.16819.
Input: Panasonic MTS file, looks very sharp on screen, no blurry parts, 1920x1080x25fps
When I render this file as-is, so even without any editing changes in MS16, the resulting MP4 file is blurry, especially in moving parts.
However, when I first convert said MTS file into MP4 using Handbrake, and use this MP4 file to render in MS16, then the resulting MP4 file looks as good as the original MTS file, no blurs at all.
What I already tried:
I read https://www.vegascreativesoftware.info/us/forum/faq-why-does-my-rendered-video-look-bad-troubleshooting-quality--103361/ and ‘played around’ with those suggestions.
In MS16, in Options - Preferences - Video I defined GPU acceleration to use the Nvidia card.
I used rendering formats MAGIX AVC/AAC MP4 and also Sony AVC/MVC and used the pre-defined template Internet HD 1080p 25fps (NVIDIA NVENC), but also the one without NVIDIA (that is for the MAGIX format, for Sony I used the 1920x1080 template).
Also tried various other templates, just to see whether they would result in better output.
I made many tests with various different settings in those templates, both with and without the GPU acceleration, but I haven’t found a combination of settings where the direct MTS to MP4 rendering gets a good quality output.
MTS --> MP4 (MS16) is blurry
MTS --> MP4 (Handbrake) --> MP4 (MS16) is perfect
Any thoughts ?
