If Moviemaker is currently easy to use, I suggest you continue with that until you have watched a few tutorials on getting started in PrPro. Coming to Premiere, if you scale one photo you copy the motion parameters and hit A on your keyboard and click the video track with the pictures and paste the parameters. If you have Portrait and Landscape photos I would suggest that once you import them in Premiere, select all the photos and go to the menu bar and click Project>Automate to sequence then hit "A" right click and select scale to frame size. Thats it... Good luck.
1. Right click the clip with the effect, select Copy.
2 Select the other desired clips, right click, select Paste Attributes.
I completey agree with Jim Simon's suggestion regarding a Premiere Pro solution. I think however I would choose to do it in Photoshop with a script - Record the following actions and then you can apply that action to selected images or even more handy, all photos in a folder:
- Image / Size (to start exactly the pixel H x W you want for the image)
- Image / Canvas size (for example anchor right or left, adjust width larger than current image, canvas extension color = black, etc.)
hello, i agree with Jim Simon's approach
set up one clip the way you want it
right click the 'motion' tab
then go down to the timeline
and select sweep all the clips you want to change
then hit ctrl-v
i did this with 800 still photographs all at once for a baseball dvd
it took way less time than having to open up photoshop
Thanks very much. That is perfect. The right click thingy does exactly what I wanted. Really good answers from all thanks
