Is ther a limit on tiff sizes?
on Mar 14, 2007 at 12:55:12 am

Hi

I am importing a series of .tiff files which are 1024 x 576 pixels and are 223KB to 1200 KB in size.

I add various effects in PI (only a few actually). In preferences my project is 1024 x 576, in Project Settings the stage size is 1024 x 576.

But when I 'Save Output' the output size is 878 x 495 at a zoom of 86%, however on increasing the percentage the width becomes stuck at 878 while the height quite happily increases until I get to 878 x 700.

Is the max .tiff size 878 x 700? Any ideas?

Ah yes,

The output .tiff file sizes are about 8 times the size of the input .tiffs. How does that happen? I ticked yes to compression.

Can I suggest that you don't use TIFF? There are too many different flavors of TIFF, and sometimes there are problems. I'm guessing that the original files used a different type of compression (better) than the compression pI3 uses on output.

I'd suggest going with PNG.

You need to increase the window of the stage until it's large enough to display the entire 1024x576 stage at 100% zoom. Quickest way to do that is to hit Alt+3. If your computer's resolution isn't set that high, you'll have to render the files in pIRender

Thanks Guys! Much appreciated.

Elvis - that worked as you expected, I also had a look at some previous posts which were essentially the same question/answer apologies for the repetition!

Alan - also a good suggestion - I'll try it as I don't want the file size to get out of hand as I'm going from C4D to PI to Paintshop - then to Premiere. If too many programs pump up the file size it'll be out of control!!
