You are correct. Video resolution is video resolution. There's no point in sticking an ultra-high resolution photo into a video because, once the program digests it, it's just going to be 1920x1080. Using an ultra-high resolution photo in a video just bogs down the system as it down-rezzes the photo.
In my books, I recommend using Photoshop Elements to down-rez your photos to no larger than 2500x1875 pixels (72 ppi). This will give you the best program performance and still leave you some resolution for panning and zooming.
I saw there was a setting Optimize Stills not to repeat the image 30 times each second, but only once.
Thought it internally might store everything is original format, and process at higher resolution.
I will have to experiment a bit for sure.
Audio recording software like ProTools and Cubase allow you to work in a project in 96k but then render at 44.1k or 48k as final result.
It's what I use making score for video - so extending a bit learning video bit as well will be fun.
A question remains - will PE15 provide a dialog, and maybe even allow to select a plugin to use for conversion?
I mean if there is such a plugin.
There are plenty smart sizing software out there, but have to test to see which way to go letting PE do a lot of scaling or not.
I have orders every week at amazon.co.uk, but your book was £34 - which is a bit much for a 300 page paperback book.
When down to £20 or something I might get it to support your work, you are very helpful and gather you also make part livelyhood of this.
PE15 could mean Premiere Elements 15 or Photoshop Elements 15 -- but excellent tools for working with photos. (In fact, so is the Elements Organizer, which includes a very good slideshow creator.) So please be specific with your questions. Let me know which program you're asking about and exactly what you're going to do.
As I show you in my books on Amazon, Photoshop Elements has a terrific batch resizer for photos. (Note that my 490 page combined Photoshop Elements/Premiere Elements 15 books retails for $29.95 -- about 25 British pounds. Although the illustrations are all in black & white).
Thanks, I have been talking about Premiere only so far.
Currency translation is not enough, europe in general adds about 20-25% VAT.
Brittain £34 include 20% so that is £28.33 excl. VAT, when I got to shopping cart they add extra 5% for sweden.
For 500 page book, quite ok.
But not into Photoshop unless it has HDR features?
Thinking getting Photomatix for that:
My Camera is AEB, so can take three pictures with different exposure in one click - or produce HDR image by itself from three pictures taken..
Anyway, I will probably have my parcel tomorrow and see how it goes.
I'm sure I will learn new things from your book - and want to support helpful people - so I will buy it eventually.
