zooming into imported photos and file formating
on Dec 2, 2010 at 9:53:53 pm

Hello,

I have two questions to ask about importing photos into Final Cut Pro. I have an 8X10 photo that was scanned at 8348 X 11757 (it’s 294 MB). Is this a large enough resolution if I zoomed into a 2-inch area of the photo without effecting the integrity of it? I have heard suggestions elsewhere that such an image should scanned at several multiples of the horizontal dimensions, at least 4000 pixels horizontally, in order to achieve this effect. If that’s the case, then what dpi do I scan the photos at?

Secondly, the photos that were scanned are jpegs, would this work for video (SD)?

Any suggestions someone could offer? Thanks in advance.

Try it, the jpeg works fine in FCP. Photos that size take a bit of time to work in FCP because of the render times with a motion effect.

Good luck

Rainer

Hello Rainer,

Alright, thanks, I will try that.

In addition to this, I had forgotten to include in my original post that the project would be screening theatrically. Do you have any idea what size the photos should be in order to look right?

The photos will scale up automatically in the right size. Do the scaling in FCP. You want to zoom in anyway.

Good Luck

Rainer
