1. What is the optimal (leaning very heavily toward best quality) setup - picture size and pixel/inch - for image viewing on a TV using 4:3?
File size is not especially important as I will be using DVDs and don't have very many images/clips per disc but obviously there is the old "Size does Matter" to consider.
2. What about sharpening? How aggressive should one be in sharpening an image? For those who use Genuine Fractals - what viewing distance should I use? Yes, I suspect I am being overly - pick your label - but if it does make a difference I would like to know now rather than after I have set up 300 (arbitraily - where the hell is the spell-checker - selected number) images.
3. I am a very new 2009 user (1 whole day) and haven't located a file type convesion guide. Will 2009 convert TIFF to DVD output or do the 'Wise Ones" suggest a specific file type?
4. Can anyone suggest a (other than this very excellent one) web site(s) for 2009 users similar to those for Photoshop (BUT not done by Adobe) that have handy hints and detailed guidance for the Innocent Newbie? Is there an on-line 'magazine' for Roxio users?
Why do I ask? The 2009 .pdf is great for sequence processing but it doesn't have the 'hold-my-hand' guidance that I would find helpful and I really don't wish to test the patients (need the spell checker again) of those who labor so mightily to guide The Lost Ones.
Example from page 190: I am told to select "...photoes and video clips..." This is great for the overview but it tells me nothing about the file type or image size - to use the example from my specific question.
