keep original frame ratio in fullscreen mode with [jit.window]


    Jun 18 2006 | 6:02 pm
    Hi, Sorry if it's an obvious issue already discussed on the list. Surprisely, I didn't found anything related in the archive:
    Is there a way with [jit.window] to get fullscreen and keep the original image ratio? A bit like seeing a widescreen frame on a square TV, leaving black stripes on top and bottom of image. I want to keep the original 1024X685pixel frame ratio of my movies when I need a fullscreen projection.
    I use Jitter 1.2.4
    Thanks for any help or hints! pc

      There is @rect attribute for jit.window. Cheers, Gary Lee Nelson TIMARA Department Oberlin College www.timara.oberlin.edu/GaryLeeNelson

      actually, it doesn't affect the fullscreen function behavior. The image is just distorted to fill all the screen. I tried to send again the rect message after the fullscreen call as well... doesn't work. Do I really need to put my movies into a bigger "square framed" matrix that fit with my projectior ratio to avoid that?
      thank for your help! pc

      You can keep the ratio the same yourself by using the jit.gl.videoplane object and the scale attribute. If you need to mask something to make it look like a letterbox, then just draw 2 black quads in the properl locations very close to your camera.
      best, wes

      Alternatively, you can use a black desktop background, and explicitly define jit.window's @size and @loc attributes, (and then hide the title bar)
      --deKam

      Thank you for all your advices! The [jit.gl.videoplane] way seems more cpu intensive than using [jit.window].
      Really surprising that it's so complicated to get a non-distorted fullscreen fonction. It's a natural feature I guess... In any image software such as those from Adobe give this fullscreen feature!
      my 2 cents.

      >>>Alternatively, you can use a black desktop background, and explicitly define jit.window's @size and @loc attributes, (and then hide the title bar)
      --deKam"
      How would one do to hide the title bar in this case?
