    high quality export

    sharp.r

      Hi I need advice on what format and advance formatting options I should use to export my project in Premiere Elements 9.

      Here is some info on my project:

      • It's 18 min. long
      • consists of mostly stills but there are videos with a lot of motion
      • a little audio
      • it will be shown through a projecter onto a big screen

       

      I don't care how big the file is I just need it to look really good.  Any suggestions?

      Oh and I want it exported to my computer not the Internet or a cd

          What kind of video... what camera and codec?

            They are .avi and .mp4. My camera is a fuigifilm fine pix and i'm using a macbook pro. I think that answers your questions but i don't entirely understand codec.

              Also, can you tell us how you will be connecting to the projector?

               

              What are the pixel x pixel dimensions, formats, etc., supported by the projector?

               

              Some possibilities:

               

              Laptop with file in QT Player

              DVD in either laptop, or attached DVD player

              BD in either the laptop, or attached BD player

               

              The answers might be the determining factor.

               

              Good luck,

                Problems regarding projecting -.

                Many projectors are still 3x4 screen ratio so widescreen video looks bad.

                 

                You should produce a file that is at least the same pixels and shape as the projector.

                Eg If the projector is 1024 x 768 then make a project no smaller than this size. It can be any format you can play with your computer video player.

                Anything smaller around 600 to 700 like a DVD will look poor unless your projector is an old 640 x 480.

                 

                You should reduce your stills to the same pixels before you import them into PE

                 

                There are some players that start the movie running and pause it with the space bar, These are very convienent when presenting to the public.

                  function(){return A.apply(null,[this].concat($A(arguments)))}

                  function(){return A.apply(null,[this].concat($A(arguments)))}

                  .


                  Report back with the codec details of your file, use the programs below

                  .
                  Once you know exactly what it is you are editing, report back with that information... and your project setting, and if there is a red line above the video in the timeline, which indicates a mismatch between video and project
