  • Large Imaginate - Edius project

    I'm working on a large project with Imaginate & Edius.
    I've scanned about 80 photos of an album.
    Scanning format: photoshop & 600 dpi to be able to zoom in where needed.
    File sizes: from 60 to 300 MB
    After adjusting the scans in photoshop, I saved all these files as tif.

    The problem is that even with only 14 Imaginate projects, Edius replaces for certain projects the photo with the Imaginate logo. (ivp files in the bin & on the timeline)

    It is not the first time I'm producing such a project but unfortunately, I don't remember the settings I used before where everything worked smoothly.

    Any recommendations on optimal photo-format for such a project? (with photoshop and the batch function a conversion is a peace of cake)

    600dpi is way overkill, what is the pixel width and pixel height of resulting image?

    are you planning to zoom in to a persons pupil and make it full screen?

    I normally scan at 150dpi or 300dpi for super close ups and save as tga

      Instead of working with dpi in Photoshop which I tend to think is "print" terminology and not relevant or helpful with video work, why not just work with pixel sizes?

      Measure the maximum zoom area you need while in Photoshop, ensure it has just enough pixels needed for your SD or HD video and no more. It might take a little trial and error re-scanning at different resolutions until you have a feeling for what dpi is needed to obtain this and no more, but would be worth it, I would wager they would not need to be 600 dpi.

      You scanner may even have pixel sizes.

        Hmm, just to be clear I am meaning that after making sure the zoom area contains just enough pixels then of course you would save out the whole image not just the maximum zoom area.

          If you have the Imaginate manual to hand, check out p103. There it states that I2 uses c8MB of RAM per megapixel. Multiple pictures will need 24x the megapixel count of your largest imported image. If for example you used 4 megapixel images you would need at least 96MB RAM free.

            Ok, dpi was irrelevant information => usefull for scanning & printing
            The relevant part was the size in MB, in pixels the largest pics are about 4000 x 6000

            Anyway ... the message you're all given me is to reduce where possible the image size. I'll do that and see what happens.

            I'll also try if tga gives better results than tiff.


            Thanks for your reactions.

              Imaginate Files

              I have an Epson 2480 Photo Scanner. I choose the "Professional Mode". Here I can set my resolution and see the image size in pixels and MB (bottom right). I set the resolution to get an 8.0+ MB scan. This works great for most applications. The resolution varies from 100 for a full page ie. 8.5 x 11 sheet, to 1200 for a 2x2 mug shot. It is worth the time to change the resolution for every photo if the size varies greatly. My scanner gives me jpgs and they work well in Imaginate. Unless you need to touch something up, there is no need to put them through another process.
