Previews

 

Set up options for the live Previews as explained below.

 

 

General

Use V-Sync - Activates the Vertical Synchronization function of your graphics card for your display monitor or output device. V-Sync is activated by default.
FPS - Allows you to manually set the frame rate of the 3 Previews and 2 External Previews in Frames Per Second.
- A higher number of frames generates smoother results, but requires much more computer performance.
- This option can be set independently of V-Sync. But if V-Sync is activated, the maximum frame rate will be set by the highest possible V-Sync frame rate of your monitor or output device, even if you entered a higher number.
R - Restores the default settings. The default value is 50.0 FPS.

 

 

2D Mode / DVI Map Mode

You can influence how the Previews display your effects. By changing the grid proportions, you can influence the size of the displayed pixels.

Grid Proportion X (%) - Defines the horizontal space between pixels in the Previews.
R - Restores the default settings. The default value is 20%.
Grid Proportion Y (%) - Defines the vertical space between pixels in the Previews.
R - Restores the default settings. The default value is 20%.
These settings only work for the Previews in 2D Mode [as well as DVI Map Mode for the External Previews].
 

20% Grid Proportion [Default]

99% Grid Proportion [Example]

 

 

3D Mode

The following settings only work for Previews in 3D Mode. Learn more »3 Previews
In this way, you can better adjust the display mode to the physical layout of your LED fixtures.

Voxel Pitch X - Defines the horizontal spacing factor between voxels in the Previews [as multiple of the voxel size]. A value of 1 means that there is no spacing.
R - Restores the default settings. The default value is 5.
Voxel Pitch Y - Defines the vertical spacing factor between voxels in the Previews [as multiple of the voxel size]. A value of 1 means that there is no spacing.
R - Restores the default settings. The default value is 5.
Voxel Pitch Z - Defines the spacing factor between voxels in the Previews regarding the depth [as multiple of the voxel size]. A value of 1 means that there is no spacing.
R - Restores the default settings. The default value is 5.
Voxel Shape Type - Changes how voxels are shown in the Previews. Choose from 4 different types [Square, Circle, Cube, Sphere].
- Square and Circle are flat 2D shapes, while Cube and Sphere show voxels as actual 3D shapes.
- The default Voxel Shape Type is Cube.
- Voxel Shape Tape Square offers the highest performance, then Circle, then Cube, then Sphere.

 

 

Important Notes

All options of Previews will be saved locally on your computer. The settings described in this topic will not be saved in your MADRIX Setup file.
