    I have a presentation I’m working on that has the presenter on the left side of the screen and Keynote slides on the right side(Split Screen). At this point the slides are 720 X540. Sometimes they’ll be full screen and most times they’ll be 1/2 screen. My sequence is a 720P.

    I need to resize the Keynote slides to fit the half screen with no quality loss and show the full slide. Any ideas on what size I need to make the Keynote slides so they fill top to bottom with nothing cut off? Any help would be appreciated.

    Thanks Dave. The head shoulders shot is going to be chromakeyed. So no problem there. But the slides need to be resized so I can export them all as tiff files and still be square yet large without distorting the slides.

    I’m wondering what size I should use for the slides.

    Thanks.

    Hi Dave,

    It’s up to me what slides are full screen and what are side by side. I plan on covering all edits with a full screen slide.

    What I was really looking for was the maximum size I could output a slide to give it the best option, and then build a white background behind it. so the Dr. is on the left 3rd and the slides are on the right 2/3. Does that make sense?

    Dave, perhaps I didn’t communicate this properly. The client has already created the powerPoint slides that were used as part of the show.

    I believe I solved my problem by exporting each of 28 slides into a format that I can shrink or enlarge depending on if they are side-by side or fukl screen.

    Thanks for your help though. I really appreciate it.

    Just saw your post, and I was going to suggest doing that. Saving as a pdf would let you rejig the layout in Adobe Illustrator (or other vector editing app) (though it can be a bit messy). I typically layout the graphics there and export it as a svg file which directly imports into Premiere. Being mainly a vector graphic, you have full range of scaling options.
