Limit resolution actor



  • Hi!

    I do not see the "limit resolution actor" anymore. deprecated? will come back? alternative?
    thanks!

  • Tech Staff

    it is depreciated. (seen as red in version 2.x)

    You are probably best to use the new Scaler (supports GPU and CPU)


  • thank you very much sir. :)



  • @camilozk,

    Well, the main reason I deprecated this actor was because I didn't have any signal that it was being used. But I guess it was. It's not such a difficult job to update it for GPU and CI. 
    Anyone else? Is this actor useful?

  • well, scaler seems to be the same, except for lacking the "force4:3" feature. any other difference?



  • @camilozk,

    They are very different. Scaler scales to a specified fixed resolution. Limit Resolution only scales if the resolution exceeds a specified threshold.

  • got it.

    for what I am currently doing with the actor, scaler does the job.


  • I don't seem to need something different than scaler



  • I guess the usefulness of this actor is if you, let's say, have a bin of pictures with many different resolutions, and then you're using the 'picture' input of the movie player to switch between them. If the resolution goes above a certain point, the Limit Resolution actor would jump in and ensure that the resolution is not too high.

    On the other hand, a better rule of thumb would be to have all the pictures at the size you want them in the first place. So I guess I won't worry about this actor.
    Best Wishes,
