Picture/Video size
« on: April 25, 2018, 01:08:41 AM »
I have a P10 matrix that is 4wx3h.  From different videos I have seen, I don't appear to be getting the clarity that others are.  i understand they aren't an HD tv and won't have the quality but mine seems to lack what others have.  Should I adjust pictures to the same pixel resolution as the matrix?  Also, should I play with the brightness in FPP or gamma in xlights.  Sorry if this has been covered, I searched the forum but didn't come up with anything.


Thank you,

Working with an image of 128x48 (or 96x64 depending on orientation) like your matrix will give the best rendering possible. There's not much resolution to work with and a lot of matrices are a lot bigger than 12 panels. Some people are using higher resolution panels like P5 or P6's as well.

Thank you,
For that size (12 panels) the viewer needs to be 35 ft or more distant. I've got several videos I play on a 9 panel that look nice at 40 ft. Dont make them too bright.

I've found the advantage of resizing my videos is for Render speed in xlights more than clarity on P10s.
