Please forgive any obvious ovesights. I recently started to work with Premiere Pro CS4 to develop still image slideshows with multitrack sound imported as a two L/R stereo tracks in a WAV file created in Audacity.
So far I'm just playing around with the program trying to make it work for what I need. I haven't had any formal training.
Setting up a project and dragging/dropping elements into the project seems to work okay.
And I can put my audio track where it needs to go and drag still images onto the timeline. Transitions are so far no problem.
But when I try to export. I get nothing.
When I go to File>Export>Media the "Export Settings" window comes open with an empty black box, and the blue scrubber is set to 13 seconds. Even if I try to set in/out points by clicking on the little triangles, I get othing.
Overall, are there thnigs I can do when setting up my project/sequence that will make export, rendreing, or any other parts of making a slideshow ( stills only - NO video) work better?
Can you point me to any reources specifically for Premiere Pro slideshows?
First question: what are the pixel x pixel dimensions of those Still Images?
It looks like they are all 400x300.
I can increase or decrease that in Photoshop if need be.
