    blurry slides

    Steph Pond

      I am editing with premiere pro cs6 and when I import a powerpoint slide which is converted to a bmp.  The image is very clear in the source window but when played from the timeline it is blurry.  Why is it so?

          A few things to check -

           

          1) Right-click in Program window and check that "Playback Resolution" is set to FULL.

           

          2) What are dimensions of the slide and what Sequence preset are you using? In other words, maybe the slide is higher resolution, but then being edited in a DV sequence which is just 720x480 perhaps, so it is "downsized".

           

          Powerpoints often do not convert well to NTSC video since it is lower resolution than what the slides were natively, and they use small print and colors that are often "illegal" meaning over-saturated and don't reproduce well on TV (computer displays use an RGB color system that can handle the colors).

           

          Thanks
