            For YouTube it does not really matter, it is sh*t anyway. You can also output just black screens for that medium. If you want to know more, be more specific.


            Some suggestions... and answer at least the 16 questions at the end of the Wiki article.

                those measurement are what ?  metres , feet, inches, pixels?



                How are you projecting to the LED Screen?  what is the display device - DVD, computer


                These determine the type of file you will need.


                What is your source material ( stills only?)

                  You can see the LED SCREEN in that video in the back of the stage! The display device is ... they told me to put it on DVC tape, its a TV Channel, what do they use in TV Stations? i have no idea how they will play it .. they just told me "make ur video with these settings 2:3 x 3x7 and give it to us on DVC Tape!"


                  Yeah i ll make a slideshow- somekind of karaoke video for the song with images ... but i m afraid that it will end up stretched out or pixelated ..

                    these settings 2:3 x 3x7


                    These dont mean much at all. They are not settings but look like a ratio and a dimension.


                    Get more info from them.

                      okay lets say we got the Ratio 2:3 and dimensions H:3 x W:7 ... what else do i need to know for the best result? Whats the best format to export it for the best quality??? Microsoft .avi format???  i ll take the final video to a place where they can transfer the .avi into DVC Tape ..


                      What will happened if the rest of my settings is compeletly wrong .. like PAL or NTSC,  Frame Rate, Color depth ... ??? It will end up a ****** un professional slideshow ...

                        Ask them for all the info you need to provide  a professional service and product.


                        You should edit at the highest resolution you can from the source material and export at the highest quality (eg uncompressed avi / mov) that the post housewill then use to send to tape.    You wont go too far wrong with uncompressed avi / mov but ask the post house.


                        Fundamental really.

                            If it's the row of screens at the back of the stage, I'm gonna take a wild guess and say 2:3 proportion (note that that is in the PORTRAIT format, you'll have to set that especially using PP's "Desktop" editing mode in the Project setup). It seems 3 x 7 could be the dimensions in FEET. Is that the unit of measure commonly in use in your country? What it might have been BETTER for the station to tell you is what RESOLUTION those screens run at, so you can setup your project accordingly, but given they just want a tape it sounds like the system will scale whatever it's given.


                            Just make sure you get your proportions right, or you might get some pillar bars or letterboxing, and you don't want that.


                            Good luck




                            BTW: please don't post with things like "emergency" or "urgent" as the title. that tells us nothing about the problem and a lot of people will ignore posts like that.
