    How to put stage at 0 horz, 0 vert.

    onefiftymph Level 1

      Dir. 11 / MacPro / os10.5.4 / 30" cinema display. I'm upgrading old Dir6.5 movies to new monitor size using my outdated/limited Director skills...

       

      In authoring and playing full screen (2560x1650pixels) Director shifts the stage down an inch from the top of my monitor.

       

      Bizarrely, published projector shifts the stage up 1 inch, so either way, the entire 2560x1650 area of my monitor is not being used...

       

      In Property Inspector/Display Template, there are location fields, but zeroing them do nothing. (What are they for?)

       

      If there are location input fields to put the stage where I want, I can't find them.

       

      What gives?

          in a preparemovie script you could try

           

          set the rect of the stage to rect(0,0,w,h)

          updatestage

           

          where w and h are whatever your width and height

           

          might be overkill (and the second line may do nothing in that handler) but works for me anyway. In authoring I also run a handler which runs the same 'set the rect...' script prior to publishing - who knows, maybe that is the real solution.
