We are trying to insert jpegs into the timeline of a project that was captured DV movie frame 720 x 480. A graphics person has created jpegs with the frame size of 1440 x 960. When I import that into Premiere, we have a black space above and below the safe margins when I scale to frame size and am first wondering if that will be ok. When I change the image size to 720 x 480 and import that and put it in the timeline, the pictures seem to be a little elongated. Can you please tell me how to import the jpegs into premiere and keep the exact proportions for the jpegs?
Make sure things match. Not just resolution, but Pixel Aspect Ratio as well.
Create a new file in Photoshop using the NTSC DV preset. Use that as a template for your image.
16:9 DV (NTSC)—create and save the square-pixel file at 864x480. 4:3 DV (NTSC) —create and save the square-pixel file at 720x534.
4:3 DV (NTSC) —create and save the square-pixel file at 720x534.
By changing the pixel aspect ratio to 720 x 534, all works perfectly now. Thank you for the help.
