Shapes wont go all the way to the top or bottom edge of the Stage

  • Hey folks,

    I'm making a snow scene for a children's performance. I have my falling snow, using 3D Particles rendering directly to stage. I added a Shapes to make the snow on the ground, but I can't get it to the bottom of the screen directly in Shapes. (see attached pictures) I can shift it down in the Projector, but it always has a limit in Shapes. Is this a bug?
    (scaling to default resolution of 1280 x 800)

    Have a look at the range set for the min and max of the vert pos input.

  • @DusX - default is -50 to 50. I changed it up to -100 and 100, makes no difference. Changed it to MIN and MAX, makes no difference. The Shape hits a 'fake' edge of the frame, and then shrinks as you push it further. Are you getting the same behaviour on PC?

    This has to do with your preview window settings, by default it has an aspect of 16:9 if you set it to the same aspect as the shapes scaling it will reach the bottom, or you can switch "keep aspect" of the projector actor to off.

  • @Michel - my preview window was also set to the same res as the video scaling. (although i was outputting to a 16:9 monitor, rather than the projector i'm making this for)

    switching Keep Aspect off on the Projector seems to work, though.
    (i had already changed everything to render out through a Virtual Stage - to prepare for mapping possibilities when we get onto stage)

    It could have been the Z value in the virtual stage maybe?
