I've been asked to deliver an .mpg in 1024 x 600 to be played on an unspecified media player (photoframe?). The client has provided me .jpegs 1024 x 600 and they need a simple movie made from these images. There is content in them that needs to be legible. I've gone to export from Premiere Pro CS5 and I've chosen MPEG2. My problem is that despite being able to adjust the ratio to 1024 x 600 (square pixels) and selecting the highest quality I can, when I look at the output it doesn't compare to the source and unfortunately this means that the text from these images are not as sharp as the .jpegs that were provided to me. Hope that makes sense. Anyone have any suggestions?
I've tried matching source attributes and this creates a .mpeg file that can't be played on the client's device.
Unfortunately I haven't been given the specifications or even what device they're actually trying to play this on other than being sent an .mpg file and being told this works.
Strangely despite giving them an .mpg file and an .mp4 (H.264 codec) file generated by Premiere Pro and an .mpg file converted using AVS converter none of these files would play.
I'm stumped! Is an .mpg file generated using MPEG II different to one created using a different codec but still retaining the .mpg container? I'm not really familiar with all this other than what I've googled.
Thanks for the help!
Have you used GSpot or MediaInfo to inspect
the file they sent to you as your template?
Since 'Photoframe' seems to be an old & discontinued
product (replaced by 'PhotoSuite 7') it might require
MPEG-I encoding (I think that went out with CS4).
