Hi Team

I have looked through most of the threads and have attempted to try some of the proposed solutions but to no avail. Admittedly I'm not a technical guy (so the talk of codecs..etc I will get lost a little). So would appreciate the layman's explanation to help me out. :)

Our company is venturing into producing small tutorials (elearning) using PowerPoint. I have just purchased Camtasia, gone through all the tutorials. My desktop has a resolution of 2560x1440 (its a Dell 27" XPS) bought specifically because its specs are good for video work.

My issue is the same as many I guess, and that is in the preview its clear but when I produce it to any of the file formats (mp4, avi, wmv, etc.) it still looks blurry.

I record and produce in the same size as recommended - but its still blurry.

I have attempted to reduce the resolution of my monitor to 1920x1080, then tried 1280x720 for both recording and producing but the results are still blurry (and have also saved in the different formats). In 1280x720 on my monitor it looks very 'blocky' and would prefer to record in its native resolution.

During the pan/zoom, it does become a little clearer but that's no good if I need to go to full screen. I have played on different media players but they all look the same - blurry.

I only need the video (not the player) as it will be played/ hosted via Vimeo.

I have used the Custom options for producing video but with little success.

Its a great tool and the green-screen feature is great - its just disappointing not being able to view it in all its detail.

Would appreciate any help.
