Slide Show – request for help
Just joined and I’m a new user of Premiere Pro 1.0 (Standard 7.01), PAL. Can anyone please help with some guidance on creating a Slide Show?
I have 50 photos from our grandaughter’s christening, each one with one or more people holding the baby. My plan, for each photo, is to show a close-up of the baby for a few seconds, then slowly zoom out to the full photo and hold for a few more seconds.
I’ve just about figured out the Effect Controls for Keyframes, Motion and Scale, but I’m confused about the numbers and resolutions to use.
Each photo is 8 1/8″ x 6″. There are some Portrait, but I’m just working on a Landscape one for now.
I’ve scanned it at 300dpi, giving an image 2424×1792. If the close-up area I want is 2″ wide, should I be scanning at 720/2 = 360dpi?
Do I crop the photo to ratio 4×3, or crop to ratio 720×576 and then resize to 4×3? I’ve read that it needs to be 4×3 to show properly on the TV.
I cropped at 4×3 and saved the image as a PSD file (using Paint Shop Pro). Is this the best format to use?
I put it in the Timeline and set the Keyframes for Position and Scale. I’m getting the effect I want, except the Zoom out is starting ok, but seems to finish fast. And how can I be sure my close-up and full photo are going to fit the TV screen exactly?
I would very much appreciate any help with this.
