New to Photopia, but worked with Photodex in the past.

I have an extremely urgent video I need to create by this coming Sunday; it's going to be shown at the Celebration for my Darling Angel and Wife, who I just lost to cancer.

I have three sets of resources and need to make sure these can be used:

Stills:
640 JPGs, each about 4 mg, 300 dpi, total of about 2.5 gig on disk

Video
7 total, 6 .MOV, 1 .MP4, about 1.25 gig

Music:
9 or 10 MP3s, each will be played as a fragment to match sequences of images; i.e. not the complete song.

I'm not worried about the run length, but will keep it manageable.  But I don't know what the optimum file size/dimensions should be for the JPGs.  Resolution/DPI?  File size?  It's a 50/50 mix of vertical and horizontal, these are primarily from scans of old photos, iPhones, etc.

The actual organization will be simple, and I plan to use one of the templates to put this together.  

For the music, I will be playing fragments of each single (perhaps a minute of one, two minutes of another, etc.)

Anyhow, need feedback on the size of the content, please.

This will be projected/played via a high end laptop (SSD based) that has a 4K screen, and will be hooked into a compatible projector.

Hoping for immediate feedback please.

Thank you.

Jerry,

If you are new to Photopia and have a large, urgent show to make, I strongly recommend that you build it in Photodex, if you still have a working copy. Photopia has lots of exciting new features but a very different and at times opaque way of working compared to Photodex. And help documentation is not yet available. Stick with what you know for this memorial project & then, when there is less time pressure, begin your exploration of photopia.

Very sound advice. More so if you were planning in bringing in a Photodex  template to work with.

Stay with Photodex as long as you can....you will go bald figuring out this program if in a hurry.

Thanks for the suggestion, used Photodex and was able to get things created.

For those  watching this - a ProShow Producer question, in case someone knows how to do this:

I have a project that I've "logically" broken up into about 13 sections, but still all one project.  These each have their own title page which I've flagged for easier navigation in the project.

Is there an easy way to export individual segments into their own video pieces?  The idea being that I can easily create shorter pieces by only combining the segments I want.  The original is long - just under an hour.

Thanks,
Jerry

You should be able to copy the slides you want and drop them into a new show. You can open multiple windows in Producer.
