Imported Photoshop menu shrinks in CS3
on Jan 9, 2009 at 11:09:47 pm

I am using Premiere CS3, Encore CS3, and Photoshop 7.

Here is my problem. When I import a Photoshop menu into Encore CS3 it shrinks in size (i.e. pixel aspect ratio). My project settings in Encore are for DV (720x480), my exported premiere files are 720x480. My Photoshop file is 720x480. When I select them in Encore it shows that the video and menu files are 720x480. However, the menu does not line up with the background video I have created. If I overlay the Photoshop menu in Premiere with the background video it looks fine. But when I import the menu in Encore it shrinks.

Any ideas?

Thanks,
Kurt

IIRC, PS7 doesn't support non-square pixels. Make your PS menus 720x534.

Thanks Jeff I will give it a try. Guess I need to upgrade my Photoshop too.

Okay, so I made a menu in PS7 at 720x534 and imported it. It was still too small (i.e. vertical position not correct). Next I made a menu in PS7 at 720x576 and imported it. The vertical position looks good but the text appears narrow.

I think I need PS CS3.

You need to make a new document/canvas that's 720x534. If you merely resize the old one, then distortions will occur and things won't line up.

I created a new document in PS7 at 720x534. When I import it into CS3 it still doesn't line up with my video background. I must be doing something wrong.

Let's go the other way. Try creating a new document at 648x480. Sometimes this size document will scale better than 720x534.

Thanks Jeff you're a genius. 640x480 works like a charm.

I appreciate all your help on this.

Kurt
