Why only 16:9 resolutions?

How can I print an iso A4 300dpi still at 3508x2480 pixels?

User-configurable output resolutions are on the Functionality wish list.

16:9 resolutions make sense for movies so that's why there are 16:9 resolutions. I can see how other resolutions would be helpful for print.

For now you might cut that resolution using a paint program.

Or just let the Windows printing program automatically trim it... It always trims images for print unless you tell it otherwise, anyway.

 

I was thinking about how you could add 1.41:1 resolutions without making the Photo mode unnecesarily complex. Perhaps you could have two buttons: "Widescreen" and "Standard print sizes". When the second button is chosen, the four presets change to:

 

4R Photo

1800x1200

 

A4

3508x2480

 

A3

4960x3508

 

A2

7016x4960

Before someone points it out… I know 4R is not 1.41:1 but 1.5:1.

We actually had this before. However maybe we can just add 1 of them. A4 or A2 and people can always rescale it.

I would say there is never a direct print of image, therefore any resizing could be done in Photoshop etc.  I know that the only time i print without any post effects is to a forum like this, and for prelim review.  We add logos, vinetting, effects, etc.  I think in lieu of makeing too many options and overcomplicating the interface, it is easier to crop an image to the aspect you desire outside of Lumion.

Think of it like taking a photograph; most photographers shoot with a wider angle lens and crop to the subject due to the best portion of the image being located in the center of the lens.  The resolutions are high enough on Lumion to get away with cropping here and there, and since it renders an image in no time you can adjust a view on the fly without too much of time lossage.

If you don't have Photoshop or other high end editing software, you can utilize open source software call Gimp.  It is a very high end photo editing software that can help you get pro results with filters, masks, and all editing abilities of software that costs thousands.  Link is http://www.gimp.org/

The output from Lumion should be looked as raw footage, like a proof in photographic terms, not end product (although most images look good on their own.)

Main problem is not a format of frame but FPS of video. Lumion use 29,93 NTFS and if you change it lately in videoeditors at PAL 25 fps, you loss quality of moving. Why do not bring in options of video?

(User-configurable frame rates are also on the Functionality wish list. I personally agree that at least PAL and NTSC should be supported but I am not the decision maker Smile)
