Is this a good project for Photoshop?
on Jun 3, 2006 at 5:01:25 am

Mac G-4, Media 100iXR 8.2.2, Boris RED, OS10.3.9 Photoshop 7, DVDStudio Pro4

This is the project: 100 short biographies, 1 screen page with 1 photo.

They want this on DVD with a menu that will list the 100 people being highlighted and a menu with the 100 authors. By clicking on the the name of the honory or the author you will be taken to correct bio page.

I believe they will be providing the written information in a Word document with a photo probably on a CD. But how do I get each one into Media100?

The most time consuming task will be setting up all the markers to link the menu names to the right page and to go back to the main menu.

I have never done something like this before. I am used to working with photos and video footage to edit together with narration or music.

Does anyone have some ideas of how they would go about doing this project? I assume Photoshop would be a good application for this.

Any ideas will be appreciated.

" But how do I get each one into Media100? "

It doesn't sound like you need Media 100 on this one.

100 pages same size & format (more pages can be added for lengthier bios)

3 menus(Main-author-honoree) more menus if you want (25 per page or whatever).

I would think most of your workflow will be between Photoshop & DVD SP.

Sound like 510 buttons anyway. 3per page (main menu-authors menu-hornorees menu) 100 each for honoree & author plus 2 for other menus

Cheers,

Joe

Thanks for your response. As this is the first project I have done like this, I ama having a hard time determining how to give them a price bid. I plan on doing an example with 5-6 examples just to try it out and see how long it takes me.

Any ideas of how to price something like this?

Thanks,

jerome

My approach would be similar to yours.

Doing 5 or 6 examples makes sense and should give you a little idea how long it will take (& what to bill).

I would burn a dvd with those examples to make sure you have the functionality you want.

Good luck in Git'n 'r dun!

Cheers,

Joe
