How to setup show using outputs, canvases, and surfaces?
Hi all, new to the software and trying to learn.
This is the storyboard for a show I am trying to setup. I setup a video routing using 1 canvas to many outputs and that works fine for the screens and stage portions. What I am trying to figure out how to do is map my Scenic LED elements. I would like to group Scenic 1-4 and 5-8 into their own 2560x1440 outputs. I seem to be able to do that using a many canvases to 1 output routing, adding my main canvas 4 times, and then adjusting my position to line them all up but I am wondering if there is an easier way to do that?
Is there anyway to map a surface to an output or is the surface only applied to a layer? I am looking for a feature like virtual screens which is available on other media servers but I can't seem to find something like that here.
Along those same lines is it possible to change scaling for an output without changing resolution? For example if I had to a 70" monitor next to a 42" monitor they both are doing 1080 but the pixel per inch is different and I need to scale one of these outputs so content flowing across both look natural. This is another feature I have used in other media servers that can't seem to find.
Also is there any way to zoom into the canvas and get a better view? For example I am using the slice editor and it is showing me the entire canvas. Would be nice to zoom into the area I am working on so I can see better.
Thanks in advance for your help
