Motion: About high-resolution graphics

About high-resolution graphics

When you need to pan and zoom in or out of an image (such as a scanned map or photograph), use a high-resolution image. There won’t be any image degradation because you typically won’t need to zoom more than 100 percent. Scaling video and still images up to more than 100 percent creates artifacts: individual pixels become noticeable, causing a stair-stepping effect on high-contrast diagonal lines.

To scale an imported graphic to match the frame size of a sequence, use the following frame sizes:
