Texture Fit

The Texture Fit plug-in works in combination with the Box Transformation and Flexbox Plug-ins, providing advanced control of how images are displayed. Various formats and aspect ratios require images to be displayed in different ways. While on a classic 16:9 aspect ratio an image can be shown as it is, it requires some cropping when showed in portrait mode.

Note: This plug-in is located in: Plugins -> Container plug-ins -> Tools

The image can be scaled by modifying the Scale U and V parameter, based on the scale Pivot.

Region of Interest

To define your rectangle, use the X and Y minimum and maximum values. The range goes from 0 (left, top) to 1 (right, bottom).


The Region of Interest is defined like this:
