rendering quality
« on: March 11, 2018, 11:15:00 PM »
Hello OVITO users,

I am using 'TachyonRenderer' to output a movie from dump files. (TachyonRenderer is used because I am outputting movie on the remote cluster, so openGL doesn't work)

As you can see from the attached file, quality of the picture is low. This happens so because I am using very big simulation box (3200 angstrom in x direction). Is there a way to increase the definition of the movie?

Dear Kyu,

Yes, you can specify the resolution of the image or movie to be rendered in pixels. It is done by settings the size attribute of the RenderSettings object as shown here:

You might have to adjust the zoom level as well to make the simulation box fill the entire picture. This is done through the Viewport.fov attribute.
