Stills in FCP7...
on Oct 14, 2009 at 10:08:28 pm

Hey all:

I was wondering if anyone had noticed if FCP7 handles large stills (greater than 4kx4k) any better that FCP6.

Right now, anything between 3.5kx3.5k and 4kx4k is touch and go and 4k+ is pretty much a "General Error" or crash waiting to happen.

I would imagine this is mainly to do with FCP6's lack of support of formats larger than 2k, which would lead me to believe that FCP7 is a little bit more forgiving than FCP6.

Nope. FCP has a 4K limit on ANYTHING...video, stills, everything. I make sure that the largest side is always under 3800K...actually, 3600K as sometimes 3800K images crash FCP.

Why do you need them any bigger? Zooming in that far?

FCP has the same issue as FCP 6 when it comes to this. 4K limit on imagry.

Curiosity mainly.

Under tight schedules it seems like big stills always end up being last minute fixes to get the show to render or to export. Even when care is taken to recreate moves in AE, Things get missed in the rush.

Also have an editor that insists on making his own images and doesn't like hearing that FCP has limits.

So, like I said, mainly just curiosity. It's generally not an issue until it is, you know what I mean.

Doesn't like hearing about limits? Uh oh.... diva alert!

I can't stand editors like that.
