Can the rotating backdrop be resized/Scaled

I know this has been asked before in a previous thread but no answer was found. Since the last thread was posted quite awhile ago I was wondering if it is at all possible with the newer firmware…

<image image="@@preview_rect_image" default_image="@@default_preview_rect_image" x=“0” y=“0” w=“1280” h=“720” textcolor="@@preview_rect_color" keycolor=“1” ignore_keycolor=“1” bg=“1”/>

Surely just changing the W & H would change the size?

Nope, changing the w & h will only crop the image, it will not change the size.

The background is generated on the top of the preview rectangle image, you can change the size of the preview rectangle, but that in turn doesn’t change the size of the of the backdrop only the amount of the backdrop that is displayed.

Hi TW, So theres no way of changing the size as of yet then?

Well, there may be, but I haven’t tested it out yet.

In theory, you should be able to make a smaller backdrop, then in the Photo Settings/Photo Scaling, change it to Keep as Original.  Then change  the w, h, x & y values of the preview rectangle to fit your moviesheet size.

Like I said though, this is untested.

Just had a go at that, I set the scaling to “Keep as Original” then changed the XML to : 

<?image image="@@poster" x="300"y="40" w="420"h="270" scale="100" scale\_type="pan" align="right"?>

All that did was crop the image and the X-Y cor had no effect… maybe Im doing something wrong or its not possible at all?.. any suggestions anyone??

Well, first “@@poster” has nothing to do with the background image.  Second, what size moviesheet did you make?  You would have to generate it smaller than 1280 X 720, try something like 853 X 480.

Hi TW, Im not using moviesheets because of the amount of thumbs I'm displaying (15), it was way to slow with the JS thumbnail moviesheet trick. I've posted you my Gallery View XML to see if you can put me in the right direction of scaling the backdrop. Also, I was just wondering, other than Gallery view, what other views allow for meta data to be displayed?
