render resolution limit
« on: September 04, 2018, 09:22:28 pm »

as of a few days ago, i'm running a dual-monitor setup, and i wanted to try and create a wide-angle render to use as a wallpaper that can split across the two screens.  unfortunately i haven't got far because current Anim8or releases limit the render resolution to 4096 pixels in each direction, whereas my screens have a combined resolution of 5120 x 1440.

so... once you've finished recovering from your hdd crash, steve, don't suppose you could look into bumping the limit up a bit?

unless it's already possible to change that setting, in which case can somebody point me to the relevant dialogue?

4096x4096 are hardwired constants right now. I'll see if I can add something to let you work around that limit, but it may not always work due to limitations on memory (32b apps) and surface sizes (GPU limit for OpenGL rendering). If I ever finish making Anim8or a 64b app it will get better.

Nice monitor setup :)
