Retina preview to large (macbook): help!

Mar 31, 2013 11:20 AM

I want to animate in Flash for an Ipad app. I run off a Macbook Retina. My document size is 2048 x 1536 @ 264DPI. When i preview my animation the flash player gets cut off. Flash does not give me the option to zoom out. Any suggestions?

    Set your stage to scale (but you know that will reduce performance and clarity of the bitmaps), nonetheless let you view it on a screen smaller than your target. If it's just a FLA project, on your first frame in an empty frame set the StageScaleMode and StageAlign:

    import flash.display.StageScaleMode;

    import flash.display.StageAlign;


    stage.scaleMode = StageScaleMode.NO_BORDER;

    stage.align = StageAlign.TOP_LEFT;


    Sometimes I work on AIR kiosks on my laptop just to troubleshoot and it's not a HD screen so I need to scale it down to see the whole thing. NO_BORDER will scale but maintain aspect ratio. When you're done just remove those lines of code.
