3:1 Widescreen Blend Graphics?
on Jul 30, 2013 at 10:09:40 pm

Hello friends,

I am designing my first widescreen show and had a question... It's a 30' x 10' screen, using Spyder X20.
I want to create animated powerpoint type backgrounds that fill the whole screen. What is the best way to do this? My plan right now is to run a single powerpoint machine with a dual link DVI out then zoom and crop the image to fit. I have created a template slide with the area not in the raster noted for the graphic designer to build on. This doesn't seem ideal to me since I am stretching and loosing some of the GFX's resolution, even though I am compensating a little with a higher output resolution. I am curious to know how others are accomplishing this.
I would greatly appreciate any responses.

We'd use a Matrox Triplehead2go to get this srt of resolution, uses up two or three of your inputs on the X20 but if you're after high resolution its the way to go.
