Weather Scene is not maintaining ratio
« on: September 08, 2014, 03:12:00 AM »
Hello

I use digitalsignage for 6 screens. Some have full HD 1080, some have only 720.
When I add a resource, I check the option 'maintainaspectratio' so the images are scaled automatically.

But now I added a weather component with a background I designed myself.
The image is 1920 x 980, but when shown on a 720 display I only see the half of the image.
It's like the weather components don't use that maintainaspectratio.

Could someone help me out with this?

Thanks!

The scenes will not maintain the aspect ratio. You will have to create two scenes separately for the 720 and 1080 .

especially if i use the same timeline for 720 and 1080 screens.

The scenes will not, BUT, if you use the alignment tools on each object within the Scene, you can set all objects to expand and retract relative to the scene size (even center), so it is actually more powerful since it allows you to create a scene that accommodates itself to different sizes without shrinking or expanding its content.

I tried using that for an embedded player output but unfortunately it does not shrink scenes for that output :(
