Wirecast 14.0 - New crop settings

I've just installed 14.0 and I noticed the changes to cropping a source to now be done by a percentage and not by pixels. This is really difficult for our use, as we're cropping a video feed from a computer monitor and have a specific ROI that we're trying to crop to. It's difficult enough with the sliders when using pixels, but having to type percentages is not going to work.

 

I checked through the preferences and didn't see anywhere that could be changed back to pixels instead of percentage.

  • While we have an option to change it for size, the crop doesn't follow that and remains a percentage. Please fill out the form and request that the Crop also has the Pixel option.

    This was identified during the beta, and it was requested to have both options, but this did not happen. Lets hope they listen to your request.

  • Do you think Crop should follow the Size setting Adjust setting or should they be independent? Is there a use case where one would be pixels and the other percentage?

      Display both - A change to pixel settings should update percentage, and vice versa. The percentage field should have enough decimal places to provide the same pixel resolution.

      Might I add, the zoom settings are also a concern. There needs to be a text field to allow entry of say 50% to easily get four 720P sources on screen in four quadrants. Without this type of fine control, it is almost impossible to do a decent layout.

      Greg Kuhnert You can enter 50% in the text field when using percentage.

      CraigS I think I must be blind. Can you do a screen shot illustrating that?

      Scale can be toggled back and forth between pixel and percentage and aspect ratio is maintained. Cropping though is only as a percentage.

      OK. Understood now. We just need to get that kind of flexibility back for cropping at some point. Apologies for the confusion, you were correct stating it was there for Size.
