    CINEWARE C4D UHD monitor scaling issue

    shiznit1994 Level 1

      I can't seemed to find an answer on any of the C4D forums, so I thought I would try here. I have a 4K monitor and everything is fine in After Effects, I open up the C4D Lite through After Effects and the UI is so tiny... It was suggested to change the font sizes, but that is not changing the UI Icons... Any suggestions?

          Nobody can tell you anything without proper system info or other technical details such as exact version info.

            UI scale should have nothing to do with system specs, and some programs automatically have UHD scaling built in for example After Effect CC2015 does (when it launches it says it is launching for UHD), but CS6 and earlier does not.. But hay who doesn't like sharing their computer spec, and if it helps fix this then whatever will help.

            Adobe CC2015 installed After Effects CC2015, C4D Lite R16


            Normal fixes for programs without UHD scale support have not helped. (example google chrome requires you to find the program in the systems folder and right click to bring up the program properties and then uncheck "disable display scaling on high DPI settings")

            Windows 10 options have you scale the monitor to 200% so that windows UI is at normal size.

            I have sent in a support ticket into Maxon, but I am not sure it will get answered as C4D Lite is not an option under their support topics.
