Preview Quality does NOT match Video Quality (Octolapse)

What is the problem?

For OCTOLAPSE Quality of the preview is much higher than the actual quality of the video. Why in the world would there be such a huge difference?

Final Video:


The images here doesn't do justice as they are both compressed. It's day and night difference from both images. The below image is more in focus and sharper.

What did you already try to solve it?

I assume it has something to do with the focus. Sometimes the videos are good, sometimes they are blurry. It's basically a 50/50 and its extremely annoying as I record these videos to YouTube.

Sharpness is always set to 100%, and I have already changed the focus level on my settings to what ever makes the preview look the best.

Bitrate and JPEG quality are also set very high.

Have you tried running in safe mode?


Did running in safe mode solve the problem?
