Quality loss after exporting 1280 x 960 30fps footage

Hello everyone,


Everytime I edit and export footage shot with my GoPro camera (1280x960p, 30fps) the quality gets a little less. Very frustrating as I am clueless after a long time of looking for what I’m doing wrong..

I use Premiere Pro Version 4.2.1


Sequence presets:


Editing mode: Desktop

Timebase: 29,97fps


Video Settings

Frame size: 1280h 960v (1,0000)

Frame rate: 29,97 frames/second

Pixel Aspect Ratio: Square Pixels (1.0)

Fields: No Fields (Progressive Scan)



Export settings:

Format: H.264

Preset: Custom

TV Standard: NTSC
Frame Width: 1280
Frame Height: 960

Frame Rate (fps) 29.97

Field Order: None (Progressive)

Pixel Aspect Ratio: Square Pixels.


Has anybody got an idea what could help here?
