Newbie Help Please

Sorry if this is the wrong forum. The questions are diverse and I couldn't figure out where to put them. I am a 30+ plus year professional architectural photographer playing around with a video for a client/friend. This is my very first video so I am really a rookie shooting a 5DMII mixing video footage and stills with the "Ken Burns" effect. The software I am using at the moment is just Premier Elements 9. I have some real basic questions you might be able to help me with. All was shot 24 FPS HD. Please keep your answers basic.

I have a couple of video segments that have a jerkiness to them. I don't think it was in the panning. Is there a fix for this?

On some of the stills that as I am panning across there is a kind of shimmering of fine detail that takes place. Re-importing a new larger large file seems to help. Am I on the right track here?

How should I output this for best quality on a digital projector?

That's all I can think of for now. Thanks all for your help.

Re: Newbie Help Please

Is the jerkiness in playback in Adobe elements or even after exporting it? Does it look jerky watching it on the camera? As far as I am aware if you have moved the camera faster than the shutter speed would like and it's resulted in a stuttering image there is no fix aside from a re-shoot. Some of the more experienced guys here might correct me on that though.

I'm not sure what you mean by shimmering of fine detail.

It's probably easiest to just go very high quality, h.264 or similar. That way no matter how good the projector is the video will look as good as it possibly can.

Thanks. No the jerkiness does not show up in the original file or if it does it is barely noticeable. It is not possible to reshoot this as the video is part of an ongoing documentation of the building of a cutting edge piece of architecture and that phase is long gone.. I see the jerkiness sometimes in previewing edits and always in final out put-though in a wmv file it shows up the least.

Re: Newbie Help Please

Is the project settings the same as the footage?
