This is not so much a "feature request" but a "requirement" (for practical applications). :-) Please note that I have only just started playing with Vuo and perhaps I'm missing something, apologies if so. Currently, all windows I create seem to be 1024x746, kind of amusing to me to imagine where those numbers came from, nothing standard.

What is required is to be able to control the aspect and/or resolution of a window. Since most presentations are going to be run full screen, only by the designer having control over the aspect can any graphics be located correctly within the normalised window coordinates. One can see this is a problem already by running many of the demos fullscreen on an HD display/projector ... they end up clipping top and bottom.

Hey Paul,

Many thanks for bringing this up and fully explaining. Currently the entire window is 1024x768. The title bar takes up a some pixels to produce the 746 dimension. We will change the default so the actual renderable area is 1024x768 for the 0.8 release (no credits needed). Thanks again.

1024x768 is a default

1024x768 is a default starting point, which can be adjusted by resizing the window. We want an initial size that will easily fit on all our users' screens, and 1024x768 is an industry standard ( When using nodes Render Scene to Window or Render Layers to Window, the window can be freely resized (it's not locked to a particular aspect ratio). When using Render Image to Window, the window is locked to the aspect ratio of the image fed to the window. The feature request, when it's fully funded, will also include the ability to lock the aspect ratio of windows created with the other 2 nodes. Hope this helps!
