    Specific Properties & Animation Tutorial

    George,I expect you know that the default resolution of a 4:3 show in PTE is 1024x768? I would seriously suggest that you use a CUSTOM 4:3 show where the res is 1440x1080. On the VERY RARE occasions that I use 4:3 that is what I do. Here is an example where I have placed 9 copies of the same video in such a show. 1024 is not divisible by 3 but 1440 is and it makes the calculations a LOT easier. The border is easily changed to a thicker one in PTE's O&A/Preferences.

    In that case you need to use the Aspect Crop to change all nine videos to 4:3. You will then lose some from the sides of each video clip. You could also "squash" each video using the zoom parameters? DG

    If you change the % symbol to px then all of the Pan X and Y measurements are relative to the top left corner. DG

    I am working in pixels - you are working in percentage? DG

    There does not have to be a "margin" if you are prepared to accept a compromise? You can, for instance, use Aspect Crop in O&A/Properties to convert all clips to the AR of your project. If your project is 16:9 then use that Aspect Crop to create 3 rows and3 columns. If you want a border around each clip you can use Image Crop and Border to do it. DG P.S. Each video would then be 640x360 and x pan for all three rows would be zero; 640; 1280. Y pan would be zero for row 1; 360 for row 2; 720 for row 3 Based on a 1920:1080 16:9 project.

    Stacking

    As requested here is the Rig and the Focusing Rail.

    Stacking

    This is my offering for today. It is not stacked but shows, I hope, that shadowless lighting is possible in my home made Heath Robinson Rig. Three flashes, all on the same channel and power setting.

    Stacking

    I will see what I can do tomorrow. Meanwhile, when I did the doll I quickly shot the following and have only just processed it. The Jug is 7cm high and the doll is 12cm high.

    Stacking

    Second attempt: Lighting is Flash Left and right through white perspex. Left is Manual 1/32; Right is Manual 1/128. There are 16 shots between nearest and furthest. Aperture is f11 which is about optimum for the 60mm f2.8 Micro. This is a full res crop - BTW camera was in landscape mode on the Rail because Portrait would have been too cumbersome. Hence there were a lot of wasted pixels to the left and right..

    Stacking

    The lens was a 60mm f2.8 micro. A very cheap but good focussing rail was used to get 11 exposures at f8 at equal increments with flash. The lighting needs to be much better and I think that it needs smaller increments - more exposures. DG

    Stacking

    Anyone here tried Stacking - this is a very rough, quick attempt using Photoshop CC to do the stacking. I will probably try a little harder when time permits. Any comments welcome.
