Size Guidelines for Text & Graphics

To create lower third templates and other text images to import to use as video overlays, can yo recommend sizes? I’ve created some PNG images to use as lower thirds with Pixelmator on my iPad but when I add them to Director Pad they are small. I can pinch to increase size but they lose quality. Any suggestions/guidelines?

Hi. Assume 1920x1080 pixels is the full screen. Everything should be optimized for 1080p.

Let us know if that helps. We also appreciate you sharing your findings. 

Thanks, Gary. I created a document in Pixelmator with dimensions 2460 x 1440 (i.e., 16x9), created a lower third with text set to 72 points and when brought into Cinamaker it’s tiny. Will keep experimenting.
