I don't know if there's an easier way to do this, I'm using this on OS X, so I'll explain how I do it the best I can. I have a scene in my movie where a car drives by shooting, so I took that little clip and loaded it in PI. I added the gun shot effect and save output on quicktime and to my desktop.
I drag that scene back to iMovie and the problem starts. The part that has the effect the quality changes to worse and it also is moving slower than normal speed, I checked the settings and everything looked right, and I also compressed the movie to full quality on iMovie before sending it to PI, so I don't know why it looks and moves different after its on this program. Does anyone know what changes I need to make? Thanks.
Thank you, this worked great. The problem was I was using 'Video' on the Comepression type, there were so many I didn't know which one to use. The frame rate is right and the picture looks a lot better, but I can still see a difference from when my movie cuts to the part I imported because I have it all in one shot. It still works though.
I know that once I import something in pI it extracts the audio, is there or will there be something to use so I can have its original sound after it's finished?
I don't know if it works the same on a MAC, but, before you render, do ALT+1 to make sure you have the full resolution and, for the audio, I found this in the PI HELP files: At the bottom of the Output Options dialog is a checkbox called Use audio from layer: followed by a drop menu. These items are only enabled when 1) saving an AVI, and 2) the project contains a background image AVI that contains audio. When this option is checked, the output AVI will use the audio from the bg image AVI -- very useful when adding particleIllusion effects to a "finished" AVI that contains audio already. (Note that the audio will be transferred from the bg image AVI to the output AVI in a "direct stream copy" -- the audio will not be converted or recompressed.)
