poor fullscreen resolution

Apr 18 2013 | 5:09 pm

Please help a new guy. I can’t get high quality fullscreen movie. Using 1920 x 1080 QT mov file as source. Trying to get fullscreen (2560 x 1440) picture – it looks a little pixelated. What inspector settings do I use? Or is the problem else where?

a little or a lot? if it’s a little you’re probably looking at the upscaling of 1920×1080 to 2560×1440.
a lot then is probably still set to the default 320×240

Thanks for your reply. I guess a little, but it seems to be more pixelation than if I play the source movie fullscreen directly, i.e. double clicking the qt file. That is my concern. The is set to 1920 1080 in the inspector.

Quicktime player might be filtering the video to make it smoother and doesn’t. Hard to say without seeing what you’re seeing. How about some screenshots or so?

I have the same problem. Did you find a solution??

Try "@adapt 1" parameter of the [] object. Next use [matrixinfo] object to check resolution of the matrix produced by []. If resolution is ok – check rendering parameters (interpolation, fsaa, smooth_shader, etc.).

And – of course – you can post your patch. Sometimes it’s simplest way to discuss possible issues.

The resolution is ok. 1280/720 codec : Apple proRes 422

Can you tell me more about the interpolation, fsaa, smooth_shader?
My patch is very simple but when I compare my video played with jitter and the video played with quicktime, I can see more pixels.

I don’t know, haw you displaying the video. I guess you are using [], [jit.window] and []. Play a bit with antialias and fsaa parameters of [], antialias, interp, and smooth_shading of [], interp and fsaa of [jit.window]. Try switch to "1" all the mentioned parameters.

"haw"… hehe sorry.

Not all.

It’s my really simple path.
