Scanned Image in Photoshop Video Setting
on Aug 15, 2008 at 3:57:38 pm

Hello,

I have a scanned image at 300dpi that looks good when I open its .psd. I create a new NTSC D1 video preset... I've tried it both at 72 dpi and 300dpi. Anytime I bring the image into my video comp, the edges are a bit jagged... it's like it loses its anti-aliasing or something (this particular image is an oval). If I create the same sized comp in a normal print at 300dpi, the jagged edges are not there. Is there something I'm missing? I've been creating images for video with square pixels and resampling for the video aspect ratio I use, and it would be nice to use Photoshop's PAR interpretation feature, but I can't figure out why the image degrades slightly. Is there a field interpretation feature in Photoshop's video settings I'm unaware of? Any thoughts?

Thank you!

No short answers here

DPI is meaningless in video (its PPI by the way here) – Still meaningless

Suggest you pick up Photoshop for Video from Focal Press and podcast of same name

Shorter answer... Choose the correct document preset for your document format. Us File > Place and drop the photo into the video doc. Scale to taste.

Save as a TIFF, PICT, or TGA

Import to NLE
