Hello all.

We use the VT4 mostlly for live shows with chroma keying.

At the last minute the talent would come in and drop up a memory stick with images that he/she wnts to be used in the shoe.

So naturally we load them into a ddr and use the downstream keyer as they mention them during the show.

The problem we are having is with the picture sizes. They are all different sizes, in different formats.

If the pictures are skinny, then the picture does not cover the whole screen ans you can still see the studio setup on the sides of the picture.


Is there a way to tell the DDR to resize the pictures to fit the whole TV screen.

Please let me know how we can do this better on the fly, I know I could edit the pictures in photo shop, but as I mentioned, this is brought to us at the last minute before the show stards. Got to love working with talend like ours, :)

Maybe the DDR2 Edit Properties skin will help:

If not, hopefully someone with more "live" experience will post some more ideas...MG
