RUNNING AW SCREEN FRAME CUTTER
1. Load the original image
Click the Load image button and select the picture you want to load. The image appears on the
bottom left area. If necessary you can also enable the Cropping option and change the crop
settings to suit your needs.
2. Configure your destination screen
In the Screen configuration panel, adjust the size of your destination screen, i.e. the number of
projectors blended vertically and horizontally. Then configure the projector resolution. Click the
Refresh button to update the preview.
3. Configure the image size and position
In the Image size panel, select the transformation that needs to be applied to the destination
image: If you select the Fullscreen option, the original image will be stretched to fit the
destination screen. In this case, it is recommended that the source image resolution matches the
exact resolution of the total number of pixels used in all projectors. If you select the 1:1 option,
the original image will not be resized. If you choose the Custom option, the original image will be
resized to the desired dimensions.
Whether you have selected the 1:1 or the Custom option, you can also adjust the image position
inside the destination screen: Select the Center option if the image needs to appear centered,
or select the Custom option to adjust the position precisely inside the screen. Click the Refresh
button to update the preview.
4. Configure the overlapping areas (covering)
To create a seamless blend between two or more projected images, the projectors must be
overlapped (usually by 15%–25%). This means the background pictures must also include
accurate overlapping areas.
To adjust each overlap area, select the corresponding item in the Covering panel horizontal or
vertical drop-down list control then set the covering to the desired value. If you want to harmonize
all vertical or horizontal areas, make sure to check the box in front of the corresponding dropdown list control.
Click the Refresh button to update the preview.
5. Create and save the image(s) for your blend
Set the quality level you want to use when exporting images (100% being the highest quality, 50%
the lowest). Click the Save image(s) as PNG button and select the destination folder to export the
background images (output format is PNG). The default naming convention for exported images
is originalname_x_y.png (where x is horizontal index and y is the vertical index). If you would
prefer to use another prefix for these files, simply enter your text in the field Output filename
prefix before pressing the Save image(s) as PNG button.
6. Save the current configuration
Choose Save configuration from the File menu to save the current settings to configuration file
(.dat).
7. Load a saved configuration
Choose Load configuration from the File menu to load settings from a configuration file (.dat).
