    640x360 video

    cappedup Level 1

      I need to produce a video clip with the frame size of 640x360.


      I am using 300 single still images to make a timelapse. Making timelapses is all good. i usually export at 1080.


      I have resized all my images to 640x360, but dont have an option to open a project at that size, or export the clip at that size.


      Is it possible. Or will I always have to export at a predetermined size?


      Make sense?

            What kind of a file do you need to produce - .mov, .wmv, mp4, other? NTSC or PAL setup? Assuming NTSC for now. And what file size?


            If we are restricted to the use of those resized 640 x 360 16:9, then let us consider this


            1. Project Preset (set manually to)

            AVCHD LITE 720p30


            Edit Menu/Preferences/General, have a check mark next to Default Scale to Frame Size.


            2. For the export...




            Vimeo SD and customize the export settings under the Advanced Button/Video Tab of the preset

            You could take the Bitrate Encoding from "VBR, 1 Pass" to "VBR, 2 Pass", but let us see how this preliminary study turns out.


            Please supply and/or confirm more details so that we can fine tune the suggestions. By the way, what were the pixel dimensions and aspect ratio

            of your original photos?


            Looking forward to your follow up.

              Hey ATR. Thanks for the reply.


              The original files are 1920 x 1080.


              The output needs to be 640x360 h.264 mp4. NTSC.


              I'm AFK at the moment. Will try what you suggest shortly.

                That did it. I didnt realise that SD Vimeo, maintained its mp4 and h264 settings. Didnt check. Many thanks.


                As a side note, do you think that Premier Elements 13 will support H.265?

                  Thanks for the reply.


                  The above should give you the .mp4 file that you seek.


                  Let us see if "should" = "it does".


                  Looking for to your results from your mini test run when you get a chance.

                    Until now, I did not see your post numbered 4 with the great news of success. Great job.


                    So glad the suggestions worked for you.


                    Lots of possibilities working with the Advanced export settings, but setting up the project is also important.


                    Please do not hesitate to ask question or to ask for clarification.


                    Best wishes
