When I'm imaging planets on my asi air, the videos look great and normal, but when I open up the AVI files on my computer, I can clearly count the pixels, making processing very hard and with a terrible resulting image.

 

The image below is a screenshot from my PC

Have you read the FAQ pinned at the top of the page in this forum?  If you had then you would not be traveling down this rabbit hole.  ASIAir is definitely not that good at planetary.  I tried it when I got my first ZWO camera but quickly switched to Firecapture.  I recommend you do the same.

You are seeing the Bayer pattern. All of the processing software you use afterward, such as PIPP, Autostakkert, etc. will allow you to decode the Bayer pattern and restore the color.

 

I capture with ASIAIR, and get good results. I attach an external NVMe SSD to a USB-3 port and get reasonably high frame rates. Capturing to the internal card or flash is much too slow.
