We shot a project using stills. We exported the images then batched resized 4200 X 3000 @72 DPI.

I struggeld to find a codec that allowed some solid resolution without being a massive file. We used a ProRes for the large outout put couldnt find the best settings for web and mobile while retaining the sharpness and crisp still quality. Also the video is only 9 seconds long @ 2 frames per still. Any thoughts?

Dpi is totally irrelant to video: all that matters is height and width in pixels.

For web most common codec is H.264 in mp4. Loads of presets but you can always bump the bitrate.

Stills will be reduced to video resolution as will the sharpness.

So why would a high res image fall apart and pixelate if it was 4200x3000?
I only could point to codec or export settings?

Note my previous response: in video, resolution is determined by frame-size. That is the pixel dimension of the sequence while you are working on it. And the frame-size setting in your export should be equal to or lesser than your working sequence.

Video formats are typically 1280x720 (HD), 1920X1080 (FHD or 'full HD) or 3140x2160 (UHD). Also 23.976/24/29.97 for frame-rates.

 

So for most puposes at the moment, the 1920x1080 frame-size is the preferred typical export for broadcast or web. 3140x2160 or UHD is gaining use. Use one of those for your Sequence settings. At a standard frame-rate as noted above ... pick one.

 

Typically, Premiere does better with modest sized stills, not more than 3x/4x the frame-size of your sequence. Your chosen stills size should work fine.

 

Also ... set your scaling preference to "Set to frame-size" so when you drag/drop an image to the sequence, the whole image appears but the image is not 'set' and re-computed as an image at that frame-size. "Scale-to" does ... and means if you then zoom in, you're uprezzing the sequence frame-size rather than going from the original larger image.

 

And there's a preference for length of still images ... you could set that for whatever you feel is going to be a normal length viewing of the images.

 

Then export using the same frame-size/rate of your sequence, and sharpness should not be an issue.
