Delivering .mpg 1024 x 600

Feb 28, 2013 10:28 PM

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.

    A couple of questions...


    What device is the client using and have you tried H.264?

    First you need to determine the format/codec the photoframe? supports.

    Then you need to do some trial and error for export.

    Photoframes can be tricky you might even have to adjust the gamma.

    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).
