[SOLVED] Global Stage Scaling?



  • Hello Isadorables,

    Is there a way that I can globally resize the output from Isadora?

    Was doing the show in Prague this week and met a new problem: the lovely bright projector that the theatre had hired in for me had a lens that was too wide for the projection surface. About 20% of the image overflowed the projection screen at each side.
    I use User Actors for each projector for the simple scenes, so I could easily adjust most of the scenes to fit the screen by changing the one user actor. However, about a third of the scenes in the show have multiple projectors in them, each showing pictures or movies or live camera outputs distributed around the projection area. For these scenes I had to manually resize and move each and every projector. This was time consuming and annoying.

    Is there a way that I can globally resize the output from Isadora so that I can shrink everything to fit the screen?

    Thanks!

    Or there would be the stage scaling actor. Its not global and you need one for every stage, but you could copy paste it in every scene.

    I think that this can be done in "Stage setup" of the Output menu bar. 

    Best.

     DOh! Of course, thanks Michel.
    I notice that this actor has a local and a global setting.
    In the manual it says:
    "

    mode: When set to 'local', settings will affect rendering by actors within this
    this scene only. When set to 'global', it affects rendering for all scenes. Global
    settings will stay in effect until another Stage Scaling actor changes these
    scaling options or until the document is closed.



    So in theory, if set to 'global' I would only need one of these in the first scene. Is this right?

    Thanks a lot
