Vyonyx has an assortment of cutout trees and people... I think they may be the curators of Gobotree too.

Sorry for spamming but Michael Pangrazio received a nomination: http://www.thecgawards.com/vote/3d-...chael-pangrazio here and as Matte Painters we should all support him, I think

Question About resolutions & sizes

Hi all,

I'm new to this DMP thingy and am starting to get used to the 'huge working size' as opposed to the 'hobby-working-size'(small) for mere web-viewing images! ^^"

There are however some parts I need some understanding to and hope someone could clarify it for me ^^"

Regarding setting up a working file in Photoshop:
a)With an image at full HD 1920x1080p size; should the resolution be 300dpi?
b)At double resolution of final output, which is 3840x2160; does this mean that the final output would be 600dpi?

Are there any more settings to be tweaked/look out for in PS? e.g. presets, colour profiles and pixel aspect ratio when we create a new file.

(I'm only working with Photoshop CS3.) ^^"
Please advise!!

Thank you!!

Hey Koosha

as you do on your hobby working size, keep doing 72dpi resolution. It's ok for video and screen.
more than that only if you have printing purposes.

cheers

As Norberto mentioned, DPI is a printing function and does not affect your total or actual pixel dimensions for on-screen viewing and editing.

As a general rule, I'd say most matte painters start their paintings at 4K resolution and then scale down to match HD resolution (assuming that's your final output). So for example, I would start a matte painting at 4000x2250 pixels, then scale down the painting to 1920x1080 pixels for the final output (the dpi can be set at just about any value as it doesn't apply unless you want to print your image).
