What are you going to use, to Export and deliver your 5184 x 3456 Frane Size Video? How do you plan on delivering this material?
this is for a 1920x1080 res video of mine, this is for the web like youtube and stuff, but I just need to know how to do things the right way to keep it the best quality.
I am editing the movie in premiere pro CS5, I put the pics in a premiere pro sequence cuz I assumed that would make the most sense.
maybe I should use after effects perhaps? I heard some people using that for their time lapses.
I just like to be able to have control over the whole time lapse sequence for scale and positioning and speed in the premiere timeline
Can you list your export settings, or provide a screen shot? There are many variables that could cause it to look "worse." Such as, if you chose a lossy codec at a low bit rate. And so on.

Issue #1 is trying to edit in a video sequence using 5184x3456 resolution. Use the default 1920x1080, and resize your images in Photoshop to that size first. You can easily set up a batch convert, or use an app like IrFanView to do it for you.

Jeff, this sounds good in theory. But, it sounds to me like Jordan wants to be able to pan and scan on his images. So, scaling his images to 1080 wouldn't give him the flexibility to do that. Depending on how much he wants to move around, something like 2592 x 1798 (half res) would give him a little room to move, plus give his CPU a break.
Perhaps it would be best to import his stills as an image sequence into Pr or Ae, work in a 1920x1080 Sequence or Comp. Or, if they're not sequentially numbered, to drop his 1-frame images into a PreComp in Ae, and sequence manually.
For time-scaling, Ae is probably the better option, as Jordan can either time-scale an image sequence, or a precomp of sequential images. Pr isn't the best choice for time-based effects, IMO. Ae has built-in frame blending options. And for added flexibility, he could look into a third-party plug like Twixtor for even more control.
ya I just figured out how to batch convert photos now, cuz I didnt know how to do that,
and Jim I'm not talking about after I exported the video, I'm talking about while its still in premiere after I 'rendered' it (pressing enter)
but I tried exporting the video into 1920x1080 and it looks perfect like its supposed to, better than the video preview window shows, so I dont really understand why the preview window goes wierd on me
but ya at the same time I don't always want to resize them because I may like to pan and scan sometimes or something, but I think I got this figured out, because when I export the video, it looks great like its supposed to look anyway, so its just the preview window thats showing me something a bit wrong
Maybe your Playback Resolution is set to less than Full.
no both paused and playback resolution were set to full
