First thing: you need to find out your final delivery specifications for your work. Precisely what does the arena need to play your animation back flawlessly? Codec, horizontal & vertical resolution, frame rate, media container?
You can't do much without that kind of information.
Dave thanks for responding,
i have the settings and a temaplate from them to produce a layout onto. I was looking to merge content from the purchased template onto their template but the layer styles are not transforming when I scale the layer content.
but to answer your question the specs given to me are:
Color Mode: RGB
File format: AVI Uncompressed
Pixel Ratio: Square pixels
Um, no, you don't have all the specs. You only told us it's 36 p[ixdls high... which isn't much at all. You didn't say a word how WIDE a delivered file should be.
It's difficult to give advice about scaling without knowing 1) the horizontal & vertical dimensions of the template you purchased and 2) the horizontal and vertical dimensions of the file you need to deliver.
It's like showing a sales clerk a shirt and asking, "Can I get this in the next-larger size", then failing to tell the clerk the size of the shirt you're holding up.
opps sorry for leaving that out. Ok to explain without getting too crazy here is the dimensions.
Purchased template is 1280x720
Vendor Display is 2760x36 but there are a few things to take into consideration.
there are GIP (game in-progress) sections which overlay my design (included in the vendor AE template).
within the template the layout is (i will break up the sections by brackets):
[912x36] [GIP] [912x36] [1632x36] [GIP] [1632x36]
my idea for each usable section (912x36 & the 1632x36) is to replicate a composition at least 4 times so the [912x36] section will have 4x [228x36].
So my scaling has to be scaled down to 228x36 for me to be able to replicate it 4 times on the [912x36] usable section.
After I can get passed that I will have to create a new composition to follow the same logic for the [1632x36] section. I will most likely do 5 sections of [272x36] to complete that side.
Sorry if this is cluttered or if I went too far into my explanation but ultimately this is what my entire project for this one display is looking like.
Thanks again Dave for responding and I do apologize for any lack on info you would need to better assess this.
Anything that's 720 pixels tall is TWENTY TIMES TALLER than a 36-pixel comp.
Take that template you bought and look at it at 5% scale in the client's template comp. Do you see any the nice details that attracted you to it? Can you make out anything at all?
I think you just have room for text.
it looks ok to me but really all I am trying to do i resize the height with the layer styles also.
copy and paste the layer into the client template.
Scale the layer by scrubbing.
not sure what you mean by scrubbing.. sorry
Have you you tried using the Scale Composition script by going to File - Scripts - Scale Composition. Set the height to 36, click Scale and then copy and paste all of your template comp layers over to the 36x2760 comp. That should maintin the relationships between all the layer properties in the comp. Forgive me if I'm misunderstanding what you're trying to do, but some screenshots of your comps might help to illustrate your workflow.
Ben thanks for the reply. That Scale Script worked perfectly.
