You don't say what the resolution of your photo is, as measured in pixels. The program does have a maximum tolerance.
In my books, I'm recommending that photos should not exceed 2500x1875 pixels (72 ppi).
If your 17" x 8" photos are more than 150 ppi, they've exceeded that size, which can cause the program to perform strange or reject the photo completely.
Steve - here are the properties of the pictures:
Width 2800 pixels
Height 1700 pixels
Horizontal resolution 200 dpi
Vertical resolution 200 dpi
Bit depth 24
Does this exceed the system limits? Any way to make this work? Thanks.
DPI has absolute no meaning in video (dpi is for printing)
All that matters is height and width in pixels.
2800x1700 is no too bad.
Ann - thanks for your feedback. Maybe you can help with my original community questions which were: I have scanned and imported pictures 8" high X 17" wide. When I rotate the picture then use the pan tool it won't let me correctly scan across the 17" width of the picture using 4 frames. Is it possible to do this? Also the help section states "You can call up the Transform panel by clicking X, Y, W or H in the control panel. Where is the control panel?
You mean a duration of 4 frames?
Yes, I'm trying to create a continuous scan of the width od the picture by creating four continuous frames. Or, is there any other way to do this?
Sorry I have no idea what you are trying to achieve.
Duration is in frames.
Framesize is in pixels.
Do you have an example?
I have a picture I scanned that is 8" high X 17" wide. What I would like to do is to use the pan/zoom tool to pan across the entire 17' width of the picture and use it my movie. Any thoughts on how I could do that? Thanks.
I figured out one way to do this.
