I read some docs on the Internet regarding Aspect Ratio but I still need help.
I live in Europe and have PAL 25 frames/second (this is the correct setting).
I faced a problem dictated by my inexperience with creating DVDs to play the project I create for regular home TV. So far, I only took care of what being viewed on PC or on the Internet.
The main issue is that people could have both regular old style TV (I assume I can say 4:3) and more modern flat widescreen TV (16:9).
I have a small project made of several pictures taken with my digital camera (2848x2136pixel; 72x72dpi). I decided to create a nice slideshow presentation but was unable to use Premiere EL because I did not know how reach the same result I found it so easy to use with Win Live Movie Maker that does all the animation in 1 click for you and also output the video in Full HD.
QUESTION: How can I do the same Win Live Movie Maker does with Premiere EL?
With this nice picture resolution and size I obviously decided to go for 16:9 so that I can benefit more of a panoramic view.
The problem is what does most people have at home in respect to aspect ratio, DVD player and TV?
What should I do?
Another few questions:
Thank you for your reply.
As with any DVDs, if you play a widescreen DVD on a TV that is only 4:3, your video will be letterboxed.
You can set up Premiere Elements to produce a widescreen video by selecting that option in your project settings when you first start up your project. Part 1 of my free 8 part Basic Training tutorials shows you how to set up a project.
However, do make sure that your photos are no larger than 1000x750 pixels in size before you add them to Premiere Elements or you may overload and choke the program.
