Soon I will be working on a new demo reel. It will contain samples of both my video and still work. This thread makes me wonder if sending .jpg photos from my 10D into my XL1 will give me better looking stills (on tape) than importing the .jpg directy into Premiere. I doubt it, but worth a try. Has anyone done it?

If you're after the best quality stills, process them in Photoshop first. If you just need a quick way to get the stills into video, try the method you propose.

Jeff,

I always process stills in Photoshop. My question is what will make the best-looking stills on videotape? Normally I import them (.jpg) into Premiere through the usual methods. Now Iím wondering if I put the stills on tape with the camera transfer method and then go to Premier with the tape, will it look better after all of the editing is done?

No, worse, because you converted it to an analog video signal and introduced more total A/D and D/A conversions.

Dummy me! Of course I knew that, what a dumb question. I have found so many cool tips here on this site sometimes I get carried away.
