Still Photos + adobe premiere pro cs3

hi all

working on a [project currently in premiere. i added 9-10 still photos all ranging in resolution (some larger then 1920 x 1080 others smaller). i also have an animation i created in AE on top of the photos and video. however, occasionally the photos will just turn into a blank screen (black screen) and sometimes it will work. the video seems to cosistantly work, but not the photos. i cant render the video out either.

your help would be appreciated

Premiere CS3 just hates photos, especially if they are larger than 1920 x 1080. And the more you add the more unstable it becomes. Also, it seems to tolerate PNGs better than JPGs.

So don't make them any larger than necessary and try to convert to PNGs if you can before importing.

Here are a few rules for photos:

- Longest side of photo should be less than 4,000 pixels
- Portrait photos always work, no problem
- Landscape photos should be exactly 16 X 9 prior to importing into PP hard drive folder
- Use .5625 and 1.777 formulas to insure landscape photos are 16 X 9
- I always use JPEG file format

Good Luck!!

thanks so much guys! what we ended up doing, dont know if it actually worked or it was a matter of luck was we dropped the dpi 72 and it seemed a little more stable?... in any case we rendered the proj out.

thanks for all the advice and i'll keep it in mind for the next proj

Dpi has no relevance to video.
Dropping the dpi in PS just means you made the image smaller, you reduced the image size.
Black images usually means the images are too big.
