Unfortunately, you have posted to the Tips & Tricks sub-forum, which is a repository for articles on how to do things in PrE & PrPro. Maybe Steve Grisetti, our tireless MOD, can move your post to the main forum, where more folk will see it, and can comment on it.I do not think that PrE 9 has added any 320 x 240 Presets, but could be wrong. It does not offer the Desktop Preset, which can be fully customized, like PrPro does. In PrE's "big-brother" one can create any number of Presets with the Desktop Preset.Were it my Project, and if I did not have PrPro, I would go back to my animation program, and Export the animation as 720 x 480, use an NTSC DV Project with the matching PAR, edit as required, and then Export/Share from PrE to the 320 x 240 Frame Size.When the post gets moved out to the main forum, maybe others will have better ideas, or will correct me on a new Preset in PrE 9 for 320 x 240.Good luck,Hunt
You are correct. You can not use or create non-standard frame sizes in Premiere Elements.
I was not able to get the setting of the original 3D animation movie from the former designer so I had to try different settings and looked at different forums and FINALLY I got the solution!!!
Here's what I did:
I clicked on the clip that was shaky and blurry when output, then went to "clip" menu--> "Video Options" --> check "Reverse Field Dominance" and "Flicker Removal".
(This step helps to prevent the shaky and blury frames)
Then it's ready to "share". I chose "Computer" in the "SHARE" menu-->"Windows Media" -->"Advanced".
In the advanced setting pop up window, I went to the middle and chose "video". I could set the size back to 320x240. (I checked the option of "scale to the frame size" when I edited the movie.)
After rendering, the movie's resolution is almost the same high as the original one. I am not sure if it's the correct way to do so but at least that achieved my goal!
Great news, and thank you for sharing your workflow to success! It will likely help others in the future.
