I'm creating an animation. Among other problems that I'll have to work through, the first issue is setting up the doc. My animation is going to be edited for HD video and in order to make things work smoothly, I'll have to make the document size the same as the sequence setting. I'm using Photoshop to create the animation layers and Primer Pro to edit. The doc. asks for Width "1920 pixels", Height "1080 pixels", and resolution in ppi.

I don't know what to set as the ppi because it can drastically change the image I'm making for the animation, if I make it low 72ppi to "High?" 300ppi.

I'm dealing with drawing my own pictures so the size of my pen can make the drawings look different. If my pen is only 2 pixels small, the drawing looks stiff and blocky but if it's set to 20 pixels, the drawing looks fat and undetailed "bad".

A larger pen setting could look better with more ppi but with a fixed height and width I could have less room to draw, then when shrinking the drawing to fit the canvas, the drawing gets distorted and doesn't look right in editing.

"It only effects printing" ??? really? REALLY!?!

I've tried
72ppi "didn't come out right" had to resize up all images in editing
300ppi "didn't come out right" had to resize up all images
1000ppi "didn't come out right" had to resize down all images
3000ppi "nightmare" don't bother

    You provided almost all details and read it. But what is the configurations of your system? Is the system settings according to the monitor correct? Is the basic layer of your animation is set for accepting high resolution?
