Hello and thank you to all of you that can help me with my dilemma. My question is I created an intro for a festival and I had to scan 4 pictures which where in high resolution. When scanning them I selected Tiff Files and they were each 641MB each. I took them intro Photoshop to get rid of the backgrounds and exported them out from there as PNG. Then they were about 855MB each. Then I brought them into after effects and created my intro with the High Resolution stills, my problem is that now I am trying to export my intro which looks great but the render wont go past 1 second. I do not know what to do... Any help would be greatly appreciated! I would lower the resolution of the stills to get them to lower file sizes but I have no idea how to do that. Thanks again for everyone that took the time to read my post and possibly help.
