Scale shows for preview work?


Recommended Posts

Hi all-got to say I am blown away with version 5 here.Having a lot of fun with it right now.

As my pocket does actually have a bottom to it I was wondering if anyone had a solution to this.I am working on a show with 1920 x 1080 displays but do not yet have monitors capable of this resolution . Is there a way to work in a reduced resolution then change this for show mode? I suppose one could use a composition and do it that way maybe but not sure how that would pan out.

Grateful for any advice.

Yes there is a good way to do this.

 

Use the Display dialog scaling feature to program the stage in 1920x1080 chunks while outputting a different resolution that will work with the displays you have. Switch them back to unscaled when you are ready.

 

Reference: [em]WATCHOUT 5 User Guide[/em] - Chaptor 9 - DISPLAY SPECIFICATIONS - page 151 (screenshot of the dialog on pg 150)

[strong]Stage Position and Size[/strong].

Determines the position and dimension of the display in the Stage Window. Normally, the dimension here matches the physical resolution of the display. You can override this by deselecting “Width and Height same as Display Resolution”, allowing you to enter different values. Doing so will make WATCHOUT scale the image to match the resolution.

HINT: This is particularly useful if you have to play a show made for a

specific resolution on projectors that can’t handle that resolution.[strong][/strong]
