    Small MP4 converts to very large GIF

    Thank you very much Gekker! This makes a big difference of course. Reducing both frame rate and resolution by 50% reduced the GIF to 7 MB, only 10 times rather than 40 times larger than the original. And of course, quality is reduced. I was naively expecting too much of GIF. Wikipedia says: With the introduction of widespread support of the HTML5 <video> tag in most web browsers, some websites use a looped version of the video tag generated by JavaScript functions. This gives the appearance of a GIF, but with the size and speed advantages of compressed video. Notable examples are Gfycat and Imgur and their GIFV metaformat, which is really a video tag playing a looped MP4 or WebM compressed video. Thanks again!

    Small MP4 converts to very large GIF

    Converting a 7-sec, 634 KB MP4 yields a GIF of 26 MB!!!!!! How to get Prism to generate a GIF of a reasonable file size? Thank you very much! ..Bill..

    Change log for PhotoStage v4.18

    Can I find online somewhere a log of the changes in PS v4.18, please? (I'm currently using v4.09.)
  4. Relative newbie here. My slides have 4x3 aspect ratio, so exporting the slideshow at 1920 wide, the height should be 1440. However, when I try to set 1920x1440 as a custom resolution, PhotoStage says "Please enter a height that is no more than 1080." As PhotoStage export other aspect ratios with more than 1080 in height, this limitation seems arbitrary. Of course I can use 2560x1440 but this puts wide black bars on the sides. Of course, it's possible I'm missing some basic insight here.

    Rotate Aspect Ratio 90°, from 16:9 to 9:16

    Thank you very much, Nat! Especially for taking the time to include so much detail. I think I'll go with the full image with bars and suggest it be viewed full screen. (It's just a casual little clip....) In future I will think twice before shooting video in portrait. Your final sentence is very good!
  6. VP newbie here. I have a little clip that's shot with the camera turned 90°, i.e., the aspect ratio is 9:16. How can I get VP to rotate the aspect ratio so the video is in the same orientation as the camera was? (Just to be extra clear, I do not want black on both sides of the image.) Many thanks!
