So, I select a short or long AVI or MOV or MPG file and convert to JPG, I suppose I should change the Pixel size to match my matrix?

If I do a 4 minute video, at 30 frames per second, that's 7200 jpg files, admittedly very small if converted to 50 by 50 or even 100 by 75 (which would preserve the 4:3 ratio).

When I get a chance (gone for a week) I may try converting a 4 minute video from full size to 100 by 75
I may also try converting the same 4 minute video that has already been exported to a smaller size, just to see what works best.

Yes, please change the size! If you have 16x50 megatree, you can either make a 16x16 pixel movie to file horizontally or a 50x50 movie and have 1/2 fall off each side.
Our displays are not giant screens (Well Maybe yours is Jon!)
There are options to modify the movie (enhance, optimize,equalize ) i am not sure what they all do yet.

I uploaded a 80mbyte movie and said make a 50x50 output. I got 900 jpg files inside the zip file. The zip file was under 2mbytes in size.

Sean - What are you using for the 50 x 50 matrix.

The only 50x50 matrix i have is in Nutcracker as a model. I am thinking how to build a matrix and how much it would cost.
