Overview

This topic presents various scenarios how DVI output can be used.

 

 

Example: Screen-Capturing With 1 Monitor

You might only have 1 monitor [1 monitor output on the graphics card]. But you need to use MADRIX and the DVI output at the same time.
In this case, it is recommended to use the MADRIX interface and the DVI output next to each other on your main monitor.
 
Your main monitor has a certain pixel resolution [e.g., 1920 x 1080]. Learn more »DVI
Position MADRIX in the upper, left corner.
Go to Previews > External Preview 1 > DVI to activate the DVI output.
Go to Previews > External Preview 1 > External Preview Settings...
Set up Left and Top under DVI Window Position [e.g., 1300 and 0] .
- The standard size of the MADRIX user interface is 1280 x 768.
Activate Previews > External Preview 1 > Lock Position
Activate Previews > External Preview 1 > Keep Always On Top
 

Graphics Card Output 1 [Monitor 1]

- MADRIX GUI [Normal window size]
- Previews > External Preview 1 > DVI

 

 

 

Example: Screen-Capturing With 2 Graphic Card Output Ports

When using screen-capturing, it is usually recommended to use a graphics card with 2 monitor outputs.
In this case, you can use the complete monitor 1 for the MADRIX user interface. The DVI output is simply positioned on the monitor output 2.
 
Your main monitor has a certain pixel resolution [e.g., 1920 x 1080]. Learn more »DVI
Position MADRIX on your main monitor. Use the normal window size, maximize the window, or use Full Screen mode for MADRIX.
Go to Previews > External Preview 1 > DVI to activate the DVI output.
Go to Previews > External Preview 1 > External Preview Settings...
Set up Left and Top under DVI Window Position. Make sure to use values that are outside of Monitor 1; Monitor 1 starts at 0,0 instead of 1,1 [e.g., 1920 and 0].
Activate Previews > External Preview 1 > Lock Position
Activate Previews > External Preview 1 > Keep Always On Top
 

Graphics Card Output 1 [Monitor 1]

- MADRIX GUI [Maximized Window]

Graphics Card Output 2 [Monitor 2]

- Previews > External Preview 1 > DVI

 

 

Example: Using Beamers/Projectors/TVs

You might want to bring MADRIX Effects to external equipment, such as projectors, beamers, or large TVs.
Often, the Full Screen DVI output is needed in this case.
Also, projectors, beamers, and TVs often require a high pixel resolution.
- The pixel resolution can be set up using the »Matrix Generator or »Patch Editor
- The higher the pixel resolution, the more computer performance is required. Learn more »System Requirements
 
Position MADRIX on your main monitor. Use the normal window size, maximize the window, or use Full Screen mode for MADRIX.
Go to Previews > External Preview 1 > Full Screen to activate the DVI output.
Click on the DVI output with your mouse to focus it. Now, perform a Right Mouse Click > Move To Next Screen
Activate Previews > External Preview 1 > Keep Always On Top
If required, activate Previews > External Preview 1 > Stretch Pixels
Activate other options as required. Learn more »DVI
