Using video produced in Premiere Elements in Storyline

I produced an opening video sequence in Premiere Elements and want to use it in Storyline with characters.
I have been playing around with various options (MP4, wmv, mov) but the quality looks really poor when published especially with the character overlay. Any suggestions are much appreciated.

Hi Sandy,

Storyline will compress the videos during the publish process, and you can modify the quality settings from the Publish Window box prior to publishing as described here: 

The Quality field allows you to control the compression settings Storyline uses for any audio, video, and pictures you've added to your course. The settings here default to whatever you used the last time you published a Storyline project. To change the quality settings, click the blue text and change any of the fields as noted below; then click OK.

  • Choose Standard if you want to use the default settings. If you mark this option, the values on the window revert back to their defaults (video quality of 5, audio bitrate of 48kbps, and image quality of 80%).
  • Choose Custom if you want to define your own quality settings. Then click and drag the slider on any of the three values to change the compression. Using higher values means higher-quality output, but also larger file sizes (which means longer download times). Lower values mean smaller file sizes and faster download times, but the visual and audio quality will be lower as well.

 Also, you could use the method described by Mike Enders here to change the video in the published folder and replace it with your original video:
