Although the bigger issue is that you're trying to work in HDV. And, with PowerPoint turning out lousy quality for even standard video, I'd say you're going to have trouble getting any kind of clear picture at 1440x1080.
You'd be so much better off recreating the text in Premiere Elements. These two programs are just not made to work together this way!
Thanks Steve. Even though I am editing in HDV, my final product will be DVD, so I am hoping the PPT will still look acceptable.
There were responses in that later thread, that TIFF worked fine for them.
I am with Steve, but then still images are my main business - I just recreate what I need in PS, or AI, or a combo of the two, and am done.
