|Summary||0002086: Custom scaling in DOM 2.15.160 has no effect if aspect ratio not changed|
In some cases, you may need to scale down the frame in a DCP to have the original image floating in middle of screen with a black box all around.
An example is where end credits have text dangerously close to edge of frame, and you want to reduce the size of the credits, so they have black margin on all sides.
DOM 2.15.x has a "custom scale" option where you can set size desired exactly in pixels.
So in this case:
In the preview, this does exactly as intended - image appears floating in centre of screen with black on all sides.
However, when the new DCP is made, the the scale setting has been ignored and the image fills whole screen, as in original.
Therefore, I suspect what is going on is that DOM is assessing if each frame needs to be re-encoded or not. If aspect is not changing, it incorrectly thinks "I don't need to do any scaling here" and passes the frame through unchanged.

Thank you - nasty! Should be fixed by
Brilliant! Thank you for very swift fix.
Is 2.15.162 released yet? Can't see it at present at https://dcpomatic.com/test-download
If it's still in the works, no problem - will use the "crop left = 1" workaround in meantime. Just checking I'm not missing something.
Not yet - I'll make a build at some point in the next 12 hours, all being well!
Thanks for swift reply.
OK cool. No rush on my account, then. I need to remake some DCPs in next couple of hours which hit this bug, so I'll use the crop workaround. Will upgrade to 2.15.162 later on when it's released.
