    triple head 2go problem.

    by deepvisual » Tue Jun 19, 2007 11:09 am

    all seems well on the mac front - the desktop extends nicely across all 3 screens.

    but when I enter full screen in modul8, the image shoots off to the far right hand side and is stretched x 3 horizontally.

    I've tried all variations of preview, and advanced output.
    for some reason the screen size and centre are all way out

    help???

    first of all you don't need to use the advanced output feature, because your three screens appear as one to the system. just switch to fullscreen.
    concerning the preview window, i got best results by setting the aspect to "free" and dragging it manually to 1024*256.

    hope this helps! have fun.

    thanks for the help.
    in the end it looks like it was a TH2G problem.
    after taking the system apart and re connecting everything, I set the preview to 1024x 256 and it worked perfectly,
    as I can't repeat the problem in M8 it looks like TH2G got a little confused.

    unfortunately I have now run out of excuses and will have to buy a HDV camera to make footage for the much bigger screens.

    thanks again

    Yes advenced mode is only for tower computer with several graphic card (up to 8 output).
    For using a matrox just change your preview panel to 8/3 for a dualHead and 4/1 for a tripleHead.
    This informations is also on the user manual p.29 :roll:

    I;ve since found out that the problem comes from using antialias.

    if this is switched on with TH2G modul8 becomes very confused.
    switch it off and everything is fine.

    The triple/dual cards from MAtrox are shit at certain resolutions.

    IF you stick to what they say it works, you shouldn't have this problem, I guess.

    They are so unstable that it hurts. I hope they upgrade them, the idea is good but they have many problems.
