Is there a recommended video resolution?

Hi all,

I'm looking for a recommended video resolution for Storyline 2. Does one exist?

Hi Julie,

Storyline 2 is particularly good at compressing videos. You can import HD videos and downscale them to your desire, Storyline will take care of the rest. Unfortunatly, your computer and SL2 might get a kick down on workability when importing multiple large videos. 

To keep the workflow as light as possible, if you can, I would suggest you go pixel precise once you decided the size of your video placeholders. If not, import HD and downscale it to fit your placeholder size.

The only thing I would discourage is to upscale videos. This might bring artifacts if the upscale is considerable.

On my part most of the SL2 produced are of size 1280x720 for widescreen ratio and 960x720 for regular 4:3 ratio. I had the luxury and time to go pixel precise on all projects.

If time is key, use HD video and downscale to your need!

Hope that helps! :)
