Hey All....

Just curious what works best for a P10 matrix so far as size ratios goes...

16:9 or 4:3?

I'd like to do some videos but not sure which ratio would be the best way to go.....

it really depends on the video / images you show on it and it you "scale to fit" in your effects.

P10s are 32 led x 16 led so you could make it either way but here is what I did.

6x6 = 192 x 96, twice as wide as it is tall. I've had 16:9 video and 4:3 video on it. You have to accept its still not high resolution but look good from a distance.

I use Vixen 3 and in my setup, I have the matrix in there several time

1 - full 192 x 96
Left side 96 x 96 then right side 96x96

this allows me to use the whole screen center a 4:3 video in the middle of it and/or image.
I also use the left / right for my lip sync setup so I have two different characters.

Thanks for sharing..... I'm still learning some of the basic concepts and the left /right I hadn't heard of.....could you describe what that is/does a little more? Also I'm wondering how you scale things....is that a Vixen 3 thing? Not sure how to do that in XL/NC.....
