Search help

  • Simple searches use one or more words. Separate the words with spaces (cat dog) to search cat,dog or both. Separate the words with plus signs (cat +dog) to search for items that may contain cat but must contain dog.
  • You can further refine your search on the search results page, where you can search by keywords, author, topic. These can be combined with each other. Examples
    • cat dog --matches anything with cat,dog or both
    • cat +dog --searches for cat +dog where dog is a mandatory term
    • cat -dog -- searches for cat excluding any result containing dog
    • [cats] —will restrict your search to results with topic named "cats"
    • [cats] [dogs] —will restrict your search to results with both topics, "cats", and "dogs"

[Matinee] How to disable black borders when using a camera sequence?

Hi, I've set up a Matinee with a camera that is used through a director's group. It works fine, but is there an option to take away the black borders that appear at the top and bottom of the view so the whole scene is seen?

Ahh, that depends on the aspect ratio of the screen and the camera. The viewport doesnt have a fixed aspect ratio so when you use a camera with it's default settings it is normal to get letterboxing. You won't have that when you view the cinematic in a new window i believe(if both your monitor's and the camera's aspect ratios are the same that is.)

Thanks for mentioning the aspect ratio, I've found out the solution: untick "Constraint Aspect Ratio" in the Camera Actior properties / Details.

Hi Albert, "Constraint Aspect Ratio" could not be found in the Camera Actor Properties / Detail.

Do you have any idea where can I find that option in 4.15?

Thank you.
