Please help as I am confused.

Although I found a nice basic UV map that can be resized and/or transformed to be used in a virtual studio I don't manage to create one myself
as I understand it is made up of a red and green layer (gradient) and adding (mode) them together I do visually get the exact same visually as the one I found online that works.
BUT... that one always give a distorted view (vertical lines , horizontally half the size approx basically a total mess

what is the trick please

I did notice that some virtual sets that use UV maps seems to use a different standard one compared to the one used in vMix.

Inquiring minds like to know

See below:

http://www.vmix.com.au/k...ual-set-specification-10

UV Map PNG files need to be 64bit so the red/green colours can range from 0 to 65535

If you can provide a screenshot it will make it easier to see what might be happening.

There appears to be a problem with your gradients.
They start out 0,1,2,3 etc as they should but then go back to 0 again towards the start.

They need to evenly increment across the entire image for it to look correct.

Here is a sample set with a HD 64bit UV Map:

You can try importing the image into photoshop, moving it around and saving it out
again to see if photoshop preserves it correctly.

Thank you Martin

My problem is not being able to alter a UV map (as I found one online also and see my GoPro lens correction altering I did in this Post

repositioning , changing its shape and what not all works when starting from an example like yours and than saving it

I was trying to make one from scratch . Got close , just the edges ;-)

Tried some free to test virtual sets , just had to replace their uv map with 'ours' and 'translate' the PSD file to the vMix xml :-)

Hi there Martin,

Did not want to create a new thread so piggybacking this one.

Thanks for the UV sample but I have this strange issue that after I resize it for my screens, when I drop videos into the inputs in vMIX, the images are heavily pixelatted? Any ideas why this happens? I have tried the sample sets that cam with the software but the videos work fine in them.

Cheers

Mark

If you see a pixelated image, make sure you save as png (File>Save as> PNG) in Photoshop, don't use save for the web. And double check that you are working in a 16bit/channel mode (Image>Mode>16 bits).

Thanks for the assistance guys.

I followed that tutorial and made a 16bit UV gradient in GIMP but for some (frustrating) reason, any video I load into my screens are pixellated when I zoom in!

The background image I'm using is 4K so I wonder if that has anything to do with it? I think my config is fine (below)

I'm obviously doing something wrong but can't quite work it out.

Cheers
