Scanning stills, what resolution?
Hello all. I have to get stills scanned for our AE artist and I am wondering what resolution or pixel size I should shoot for. The show will be done in 720p HD (1280×720). There will be tons of scaling done on all pics (scaling to sizes both bigger & smaller than 1280×720). What’s the best way to handle the scans? The scans will be coming from high quality Kodachrome 64 film. Should I make then around twice the pixel size? Should I keep them at around 1280×720 and scan at 300dpi? Any information would be much appreciated. I have over 600 stills to be scanned so if I get it right the first time, that’d be best.
Thank you all in advance.
