Hi,

Im try to get one giant image to appear on a video wall. Im not looking to get 15 different images or the same image to appear 15 times, but one huge image to take up the entire video wall. Im fairly new to the program and was wondering if someone here could guide me in the right direction.

Thanks,

Brian

Well then all you have to do is use the scale properties. Twirl down the little arrow in front of the scale properties, and you can change the X,Y,Z parameters individually.

When you say video wall, are you talking about your working area, or the size of your composition, say 720x1280?

Thanks Aj,

Basically what I want to do is make a box, replicate it 15 times so that its a giant rectangle and have that display one giant image instead of 15 different ones. This would be within the project, not the entire screen so i dont think the project size really matters.

I've done something similar; let's see if I remember how to do it. I believe I made a replicator and the video in separate layers, then I put an image mask on the video and dragged the Replicator itself (not the Replicator source cell) onto the image mask.

Running late so can't test this out to be sure, but that sounds about right for what I did.

Oh Ok, I get it, you want to tile the video!?

DO NOT use a replicator for this! It would just slow down everything. Do this. Apply the Tile filter, it can be found here [ Filter->Tiling->Tile ]
Then you can get the tile effect like shown the picture. (sorry for the colors, I did this in 1 minute)(no time to think about colors :P)



I hope this helps!

hey thanks guys, I was unaware of the tile filter. So i just tiled a white square and took out the luma and it looks exactly how i wanted it. Thanks again for all the help.
