I am putting together a DVD showreel for a photographer friend of mine, and I'm just wondering the best way to optimise the photos for display - or if it even matters?!
Basically, we want to create a video with the photos zooming in slightly, fading up and out, music etc. so the best way I can see to achieve this quickly and effectively is in Sony Vegas or Premiere. This just means bringing in the photos as Project Media, dropping them in the timeline, applying the fades, adding music etc. and rendering out the project as an MPEG2 and then creating the DVD from this.
Is this OK? I'm worried the images aren't going to look as good as they can, but I guess with DVD there is always going to be some loss in quality. I just want them to look as good as possible. Any advice? Thanks.
