    Draw view control and screen size

    by yntrimd » Mon Oct 24, 2016 5:01 pm

    Hello~

    I am having a trouble with draw view control. The things I draw keep showing bigger than I expect or located in wrong position of the screen.

    I set the Syphon output size to 1024*768 -since I want to output the screen in this size later- and set preview panel to 4/3 ratio.

    I dragged the draw view control to workspace and named it ‘draw0’. It seemed the actual size or the location of draw view control in the workspace matters, so dragged the control into 1024*768 size. It was bothersome because I had to make the workspace size bigger than 1024*768 to see the control size figure and than shrink the workspace down so that it doesn’t cover the other interface. (this sounds stupid but I don’t know other ways…)

    I wasn’t sure it will work but I also wrote
    module.setAttribute('draw0', ' FRAME', 0,0, 1024, 768)
    in init() script panel.

    When I draw a circle which suppose to be located on (0, 0), it shows in wrong location.

    module.paintOval('draw0', 0, 0, 100, 100, 1,1,1,1)
    module.finishDrawings('draw0')
    module.sendContentToLayer('draw0', ' drawlayer', 1)

    If I tick normalise in TRANSFORM panel, the circle moves to the right position, but I feel this is not right. I feel I am totally misunderstanding the size concept in Modul8.

    I have been struggling for this issue for long hours but I really don’t know what to do…
    Please help me out.

    Thank you.

    Hey,

    1.have you checked the manual?

    http://www.modul8.ch/documentation/modules_manual/

    2. can you post some screenshots?

    3. Is normalize active or not? (you find this in the transform section)

    hope this helps ....

    Thank you for replay.

    I posted this after I read the manual several times. I need more information about draw view control.

    I know when normalize is active, the drawings seems in the right position. But If I set the draw view size as the screen size at the first place, shouldn't it be fit in the screen without the normalize is activated? Just asking because I couldn't understand how it works.

    Is there anyway I can make the draw view size fit to screen size with out ticking the activation?
    If I have to activate normaize anyway to set the draw view size fit to screen size, is there a way I can initiate the activation with script?

    Thank you very much.

    hey,

    I don´t know that much about scripting. I am struggling myself with several issues . :oops:

    but I would suggest two things.

    1. contact support (support(at)garagecube.com) pretty sure they can help.
    2. email the Team the module, so they can look at the code.


    I hope this helps you .

    best peter

    Oh!
    I didn't think about emailing Modul8 team or getting help from support.
    I should try it.

    Thanks Peter!

    Best,

    Heya~

    I've been searching the topic about draw view control, but there weren't much.
    I will go through the documentation again before emailing the support.

    Thanks!!!
