I am wondering if somebody out there could please help me with some video settings for my animated film?
I have taken pics for the animation with my still camera in 4:3 ratio. I first put them all together using imovie but after a while I discovered that imovie wasn´t the best program for animations so I finally got istopmotion pro.
Now I am a little bit confused about all the different settings though:-(
What I want is just the animation to be exported to a dvd with as good quality as possible. (i am planning to submit it to some film festivals)
But using 4:3 doesnt seem to give me the HD quality. (when I export or send into imovie, the images loose alot of sharpness) Is there any way of getting a really good and sharp image using this ration or do i have to make it into 16:9?
I did a test creating a 16;9 version in istopmotion however, but then the problem is that the program seems to decide how to crop the image. Isn´t it possible to decide for yourself which part of the original image should be cropped into 16:9?? (as it is now, the figures are too high up in the picture and it looks really weird..)
It seems strange that a pro-version doesnt allow you to do that...Or have I missed something in importing the images?
I thought about the idea of cropping each image in photoshop and then reimporting them into istopmotion, but that would be a crazy amount of work...
Does anybody have an idea?
I would be very thankful for help!
