Stills with over 4,000 pixels possible?
on Oct 17, 2005 at 11:30:53 pm

Can Red do large High Def panning & zooming of large still images or is it still limited to QT's 4000 pixel? When the Hi Def frame is 1,900 pixels this means only a 2 to 1 zoom is possible. I have red & love its zooming on stills but am about to start a new project in Hi-Def. Any ideas?

Red (as well as FX and Graffiti) supports still images files up to 16,000x16,000 pixels. However, you need to make sure that the still image format that you use can support larger images. For example, PICT limits images t0 4000x4000 pixels.

I hope that helps.

Make sure and get back to us and talk about how long it took to manipulate images of that size. I'd be curious as to how bogged down your system becomes.

large still format Red can read?

I have a still ~14K pixels (about 450 Meg) & cannot find a still format that Boris Red recognizes without error. I tried Tiff & BMP, any ideas?

did a 8K by 6K image zoom

I did a simple 10 sec. 20% to 100% zoom on a G4 1.4Meg DP w/ 1.5Gig memory. It was reasonably responsive but I wouldn't want to want to preview anything on it. However Export movie render gave errors saying I ran out of memory & I had 2 hick ups during the render but it made a file that played with 2 rendered freezes & consequent dropped frames. This doesn't seem to be the system for large HDV zooms. It needs more memory & possibly a G5.
