Getting to output settings
Right click the 'Dise Control center' icon in the Windows taskbar then navigate to 'Settings' -> 'Output settings'.
A new window will appear where you can select what screen you want to edit the output settings for. As default only one screen will be present. (If you want more information on how you can set up multiple screens see this solution.)
In this window you can also 'Add' new screens, 'Edit' existing screens, 'Remove' screens and move them up and down in the list.
Click your screen and then select 'Edit' and the output settings will appear.
A quick guide to the different settings in the 'Edit output' window.
- Name - Select a name for your screen
- Description - Add a description of the screen
- Graphics adapter - Drop down to select a graphics adapter, if you are using multiple screens you can select a graphics adapter and a separate playback window will be created for this output. More information can be found here.
- Run in Window - If checked the playback will be in windowed mode
- Always on top - If checked the playback will always be on top of other applications running in the background
- Show cursor - If checked the cursor will show above the playback
- Mirror screen - Mirrors the playback
- Flip screen - Flips the playback
- Display rotation - Can be used to rotate the playback
- Set output position - The two boxes are X and Y coordinates, changing this will change where the playback "starts" on the screen. For example if you put '10' and '10' the playback will start 10 pixels from the top and 10 pixels from the left.
- Set output resolution - The two boxes are the resolution of the output in pixels, this can be changed to specify the playback window size.
In this example we have two portrait screens next to each other and we want to stretch the playback over both.
Here is a step by step guide on how to achieve this.
- Right click the 'Dise Control center' icon in your taskbar
- Select 'Output' settings
- Select your screen and click 'Edit'
- Leave your 'Graphics adapter' as it is
- Check the box 'Run in Window'
- Leave the 'Output position' on 0,0
- Set your 'Output resolution' to '2160', '1920'.
- Click 'Ok'
Your control center will now restart, when it starts again your playback should be stretched over both screens.
