i've created a little slideshow for my friend in the air force in adobe premiere and rendered it uncompressed. the video is 6 minutes long as is a womping 11 GB big. windows media player says that some files are missing from the source footage, so i can't compress that way and videowrap doesn't work with uncompressed footage (go figure). i tried changing the render setting in premiere but the video came out slightly pixelated. now, i sliced the video into 30-second clips and am rendering it that way. but that just seems kind of annoying. is there anyway i can compress this video to a decent size?

What render settings did you use in Premiere that caused pixelation? it should just be a matter of adjusting the render settings to something suitable.

I've never had any problems like that in premiere.
Just use Cinepak Codec preset for the compression...whatever the case
there should be no reason for losing quality in there....unless
the pictures are either really really large, or really small and high resolution. If you take a high resolution image in premiere and scale it down, I have had experiences with color bleeding in the graphic, but thats because I was trying to make a 1200x1600 image appear in a 200x200 space....but even in that instance it was a error on the render settings.

Thats really annoying, you should just try rendering it again.
Why is it so critical that you render it uncompressed? Do you plan on putting it onto a dvd anyway?

it's critical because i wanted to put it onto a cd. plus, 10.9 GB for a 6 min video is simply ridiculous. but, i took the video into premiere and rendered it as a dv avi and it worked this time (this is the one that made it pixelated last time). but somehow it worked and i compressed it by a lot. the video is on a cd now and all is right with the world =)

thanks for your help guys
