Video is grainy and blurred

edited June 2015 Posted in » Nikon D3200 Forum
I am doing a video tutorial for an online site. I can't seem to get the settings right to get a good video. I'm guessing that it is something to do with the auto focus, but can't figure out what. I tried a few manual settings but couldn't get any good results that way either. The camera is on a tripod. I am filming a machine that is performing a digital cut. The mat goes back and forth into the machine and I am guessing that might also be a factor. Any suggestions? I have made videos before and have not had problems.


  • I think it is because that you don't make the codec meet the requirement of the online site your are working on. For example, YouTube and Vimeo usually asks for MP4 H264 input, or you will get a bad video output. 3 ways to upload your video to a certain site you can see here :
    Another possible reason is that although you have enhanced the resolution, for example to 1080p, you forget to adjust the bit rate along with it. Normally an 1080p video require a bitrate value of 7000( you can refer to or the output will still look grainy.
