View Full Version : Frame limited to 720 x 480

Hi, I am learning LW at a training college in Auckland New Zealand. I have used 3DS MAX for a number of years.
I have a simple question for you. Regardless of how I change globals on LW all images are rendered at 720 x 486 (NTSC). I have checked the config file and all seems OK with support for higher resolutions and custom frame sizes. I am trying to render a single frame and have set Save RGB and used TIF, LW_BMP and LW_PNG but all end up giving me a single black and white image of 720 x 486 even though the preview shows colour.

If you're up to it, just add the DV camera resolution to your lw9.cfg file. It's as easy as copy from a current resolution, pasting onto another line and then editing the 486 to 480.

Just be sure to back up your config first.

I did this at work and at home as I was only using certain resolutions. So I deleted the settings I never used added custom ones for prints C and D sized prints etc. Very easy to do.

I am happy editing the CFG file but noted that it already has entries for 1368 x 768 (LCD) etc in there. I can select these but even if I do it only renders at 720 x 486, i.e. it is totally ignoring what I ask for.

Sorry about that. Misinterpreted your last.

In the Camera Properties dialog box, is the "Use Global" selected? If so deselect that and use the Camera settings. See if that works.
