View group. Curved screen and a flat screen

Postby driver170 » Wed May 27, 2020 10:12 am

Hi, i have Prosim737 and a fully built cockpit. I’m running one large 78” samsung curved screen for the front view.

I’m looking at purchasing another 65” flat screen for the left hand side view.

Will my current screen which is curved be a problem with a flat screen when setting up view groups?

Thanks

Screens of dissimilar sizes and/or resolutions (you don't say what the resolution is of either monitor) can lead to interesting issues with view alignment. Monitors of the same resolution, say, 1920x1080 (HD) but of different physical sizes take a fair amount of work to achieve good alignment, similarly with monitors of the same physical size but differing resolutions (e.g., an HD monitor and a UHD monitor) -- but it is possible to achieve with a correctly designed view frustum in a viewgroup.

What are the physical dimensions of the two monitors (height and width, not diagnoal) and what are their respective pixel resolutions?
