I have an issue that may be elementary for some to fix. This
issue is just driving me crazy. I hope it is obvious. I appreciate
any who can help.
I am seeing a centered, vertical distortion through every
sprite of every movie I create. It runs from the top of the page
through to the bottom of the page. Anything that runs through this
center point gets a doubling-up or skewed distortion. It looks to
be about 2 pixels wide.
If a photo runs through that point, it looks like pixels get
offset from each other, like skewed apart. If type goes through
that point, it looks doubled-up... or split. For example, if a
lowercase "L" goes through that point, it appears to be in double.
Flat colors do not show the distortion. I am NOT working with
sprites native to Director. I prefer to typeset in Photoshop and
have my type live on imported PICT files. So all files placed are
flat PICT files.
I work relatively simply – I only use simple wipes and
fades.... nothing too complicated. The PICT files I place in to the
movies are 150 DPI. I am working 1024x768. My bit depth is 32. I
thought I might have a centered guide that caused the distortion.
But I do not.
Has anyone seen this issue? I only see the distortion when
viewing at 100%. If I zoom out, or in, I do not see it. And, of
course, my projector is at 100% – so I see the distortion on
every slide, every movie. My boss is ready to kill me!
