Why are "Lines" so jaggy?
Using the latest Isadora on a 3 yr old MacBookPro, I've begun experimenting with the Line actor. Now that I've got the placement of the line under control, I notice that the line, at an angle, is really jagged like it's 320x240 or something. My monitor (and projector) is outputting 1920x1080. How can I make my lovely lines smoother?
Thank you, John

@jjhp3 have you checked your default video resolution in preferences ? You should adjust them to full hd
Thanks for replying so quickly. I did do some research before asking the forum and found your tip about default resolution. I reset it to 1920x1080 and restarted the program with no apparent change in jagginess. I have found the 3D Lines actor which looks like it will make the mapped lines I'm looking for and the lines are super smooth.
I'll keep investigating! John

may be is a stupid question, have also set the option to "scale to default resolution" ?
Not a stupid question... I was excited to try your suggestion out today, because I just missed the box and left it as resolve to smallest. Unfortunately, changing that to default resolution (which was set at 1920 x 1280) produced no difference in the Line Actor jaggies. I did discover antialiasing in the preferences, which helps when using 3D Lines. But I am having a hard time getting them to be placed accurately on objects.
Thanks for your suggestion! I do appreciate you taking the time to try and help ~
the lines actor does have a very sharp edge (more aliasing would be nice),
I usually run all my lines (mixed) thru a gaussian blur, set to 2 (the minimum amount where I see any effect)
Thanks Ryan. I'll work with your solution! - John
