Thread: Exporting video consisting of 5sec roll title + still images

  1. #1

    Default Exporting video consisting of 5sec roll title + still images


    I'm working with Adobe Premiere Pro.
    My project consists of following :

    a) 5-sec rolling title in the beginning
    b) 60 still images , each one lasting for one sec exactly
    c) Some background music + sound effects

    At the end I want to get one avi of maximum quality (no compressing of still images at all) and minimal size.

    Questions :

    1) Can i set framerate 1 for still images ?

    2) In exported movie the images are reduced in quality even though I disabled "Optimize Stills" option. Why is that ?

    3) Is it good idea to export separately rolling title and still images and then join them together ?

    4) In short - how would you do it ?

    Well as far as I'm aware (but I could be wrong) you can't change the framerate within a movie file, so therefore you'd have to have the whole thing set at the same frame rate. I know you said you wanted a finished AVI file, but what is it you're wanting to do with the AVI file at the end of it all? Also, are you having transitions between the 1 second images or just clicking from one image to another?

    No transaction between still images. I need final AVI to have a presentation. Meanwhile , each time i export movie i see that still images are of reduced quality. This is main problem. Second problem is file size.

    Okay, what resolution are you working to, and what filesize you would prefer the finished thing to be?

    What export options are you using for your final export?

    My sequence is defined as 720x576 , 25fps
    32Khz , Stereo

    Only few seconds are actually movie (rolling title in the beginning) , so maybe i should work with different fps ?

    60 still images i have in clip are JPGs. I reduced them to be max 720x576 (width and height) . Average file size is 100KB. I don't want them to be compressed again by export function - i need them to stay at original quality (which isn't so good).

    When i preview the project it looks very good : smoothly rolling title,
    still images of original quality.

    What should i try ? (I tried another codecs like QuickTime and Microsoft MPG 4 V1,V2). Maybe "fileds - upper field first"

    I tried few options of exporting , here's one example (i'll list all other if it will be needed) :

    Microsoft AVI
    Entire sequence
    Export Video , Export Audio

    DivX Pro 5.2.0 Codec
    Millions of colors
    Square pixels
    (recompress and limit data not selected)

    No fields
    (all others not selected)


    Microsoft ADPCM (why i can't select MP3?)
    16bit , Stereo

    Final output file is about 13MB , rolling title is descrete (jumping) and images are of reduced quality.

    Then export with no compression or to a less compressed format such as DV AVI.

    I must stress that Adobe Premiere was not designed to create slide shows. But to incorporare images, I would suggest you start with a lossless file such as TGA or even a BMP if you've scanned the images. To make the clips longer, simply treat them as video and extend the out point.

    Movie exported as DV is 283MB (!! - one minute).
    It plays good in Windows Media player , but if i run it in CrystalPlayer
    i get error : "can't locate decompressor".

    What codecs should i uinstall ?
    Is it really the best way to do it - 283MB for one minute movie..
    How esle can i handle it ?

    The size seems about right for DV AVI format. When I capture footage I can expect 1Gb for 5 minutes of footage.

    It's after editing when I export to WMV or MPEG2 (for DVD production) that I get the big savings.
