G'morning all,

Is there a difference or better way when converting large PS files to vid, between.

a) Changing in PS i.e image size to 1280 x 720 x 72 res

b) Open new trans film and video layer, drag large file in, keeping layers/characters at a large size i.e basically filling 1280 layer then, scaling down in AE.

c) There's a better way?

Being the files are PS as opposed to ai my concern is getting best res (clearest pic) when projecting.

Do your scaling in Photoshop, not After Effects.

See "Preparing still-image files for importing".

Thanks Todd,

It's kinda strange, as I've worked in PS for quite a few years now, way, way before smart objects and, the mindset of enlarging a reduced pixelated item is like ones first rappel or jump so, I do appreciate everyones patience and help.

The first half of this animation, 3 mins in length, was basically large files that I had scaled down in AE, when I rendered it, it took about 3 hours and is close to 20 gigs, it was that standing on the edge and, waiting to go feeling. Okay, the front and back of this animation are going to be 1280 x 72 sized in PS to the largest size I need them to be in within the actual set.

It's time to let go.
