    Look, it is dangerous to cling to this 72dpi notion -- dangerous because it will lead you down the wrong path. Let's imagine I'm going to scan a photo for use in a video -- ahh, simple you say ... scan at 72dpi. Or not. If I had a 4x6 print and scanned it at that, I'd end up with a file that was barely 280 pixels tall and less than 450 wide. So 72 dpi means nothing when gathering photos for video, and as the resolution doesn't change when I show it on my bigger and better screen, it means nothing when showing video. 72dpi is at best a suggestion as to what might make an acceptable print from video -- but it is just that, a printers term, and no use to us here.

    Cheers,

    DPI is really for print. The most important thing is that the resolution is identical to the video that you are working with.
