"Creating a slideshow for HD TV viewing from blu ray"


UK
          

I apologise if this has been asked many times before but searching it only found threads from several years back, which hardly relevant for HD televisions of today.

1. I use a Nikon D7000 which takes images of 4928x3264px with a resolution of 200px/inch. I'm assuming I need to drop the image size to 1920x1280px for viewing on a HD PAL TV set but what about the px/inch setting? Is this fine if left as it is?

2. I'm also looking to create HD stills slideshow and also play video footage shot on a recent holiday to Canada. I'm currently doing the all editing on my iMac. I'm working on the assumption that I need to output @ 1920x1080p, 25fps for a PAL HD 1 screen. Is this correct?

Obviously this project means going for Blu Ray which I don't have yet so I'm looking to buy an external BR burner for my iMac and a player for playback to the TV. It's also looking as though my existing Mac editing s/w may need reviewing. I've used Capture NX2 for my NEF edits for years and iPhoto for JPEGs but I'm current looking at a trial for LR4. It may be that the video side of this project needs more than iMovie can provide. Suggestions welcome.

If there are any Mac owning Nikonians who've already done this and can share their experiences (good and bad!) on both s/w and h/w I'd welcome some advice.

The images coming out of your camera actually do not have a ppi setting. They are simply made up of 4928 pixels by 3264 pixels. PPI is really only important when you apply your image to the print medium. For monitor (TV) display it is not relevant. I would just concentrate on setting the image resolution to match the TV so that it fits in that aspect ratio without leaving letterbox bars, this may mean some amount of cropping.

Thanks for your reply, Ernesto.

OK, that I can do or at least the Mac can. It should give the processor a workout, downsizing several hundred images.
