videoplane distortion on videoplane at 90° Z rotation


    Feb 12 2008 | 1:39 am
    howdy, its me again with another dum question .....
    how come the videoplane is distorted to fit the window on a 90 degrees rotation on the Z axis ?
    because of transform_reset 2 ?
    how can i avoid this ?
    any thoughts , advice much appreciated :)

      Because that's what transform_reset 2 does -- it stretches the
      videoplane to fit the window. Not sure what you're after, but you
      might try using a [jit.gl.slab @file td.rota.jxs] to rotate the video
      before sending it to the videoplane @transform_reset 2. hope that
      helps!

      thanks Dan , ill try the td.rota slab trick.
      i still wonder if there isn t an easier way to do this (?)
      what i am after is actually what is showed in the attached patch :
      i am working on a project where i need to have the movies mapped on a videoplane keep their original pixel dimension and aspect ratio no matter what the destination dimensions are. so one pixel on screen = 1 pixel in world.
      i then want to be able to manipulate that videoplane without it being distorted.
      how can i force it not to be distorted ?

      hey list,
      quite an old thread, but still a good question.
      is there an easy way to rotate a videoplane with reset 2
      without distort it.
      the only way i found out was store the movie dimension ratio
      and use reset 1.
      but thats not very comfortable, if you want to scale and rotate
      afterwards, or if you load movies with different dimensions.
      perhaps there is an elegant solution for this problem.
