I am trying the trial version of PE8 to see if it is worth upgrading from my prior PE6.
When I try to add a still JPG (large at 5600X3700 to allow good pan and zoom) I get an error message:
"Generic Failure. This type of file is not supported, or the required codec is not installed"
I can import these pictures using Organizer and they appear in the right side media selection window in PE8 just fine. If I try to drag them onto the Time Line I get the error however.
I have tried reducing the size of the JPGs to 2500X2500 and these appear to go onto the Time Line with no problem.
Is there some JPG size limit that PE8 can work with?? Is there a work around other than using Lightroom to reduce the size of the JPG?
For SD footage 1000 x 750 is the usual recommendation. Doubling these to 2000 x 1500 should be adeqaute for HD.
