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!

      There is @rect attribute for jit.window.

      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!

      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.

      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?
