I have some fairly high resolution still panoramas which I would like to pan from left to right, but when I rescale the image to fit the frame, the resolution falls to an unacceptable level. Can this be done? John
Make sure that, BEFORE you add this photo to your project, you go to the Preferences (under the Edit menu on a PC) and uncheck Default Scale to Frame Size.
Scaling to Frame Size artificially shrinks your photo -- no matter how large -- to the size of your video frame, making detailed pans and zooms like yours impossible. When this is unchecked, your photo will come in at full resolution and you'll only see a small portion of it in the Preview window.
That said, remember that you are working at video resolution, so some detail will be lost. (Less so if you're editing high-def video.) And, of course, don't forget to Render your timeline after you add your pans and zooms to see a better representation of what your final video will look like.
Many thanks Steve, John M
